What a Girl Wants…

Join the conversation over at Colleen Mondor’s fabulous blog, Chasing Ray!

What DO we need to be writing YA books about?  What do we NOT need?  Do we really need YA books at all?  Is there a danger to setting limits/expectations?

    To answer your questions, I think there should be more YA books prompted by the work of H.P. Lovecraft. I mean, there’s an entire chapter in Gaiman’s “The Graveyard Book” about Night-Gaunts, and that won the Newbery. So maybe the next YA novel about a quirky teenage girl detective needs to have a chapter where she discovers the Elder Gods and looks into the face of Cthulhu only to find that “she can see forever.” Just for like a chapter or something. I think that would be pretty cool.
