Dark YA Fiction
I just read a bunch of articles on the NY Times website regarding the trend in dystopian and post-apocalyptic fiction. The link above is to one of them, and the others are in the left-hand sidebar of that page.
I don't know why I love dystopian/negative uptopian/post-apocalyptic books. I just know that I do.
So I'm not going to speculate about that.
What I really find interesting is how in the article linked to above, the author says that there is a very liberal ( "in every sense of the word" ) trend in YA literature. Except I just read the first pages of her book, and it says in there that there is an awful lot of conservative literature that is growing increasingly popular.
Which is true, and why is it happening?
