Hey All,

I thought it might be fun / interesting to talk about what themes you'd like to see more of in YA and what is really getting on your nerves. I'm not looking to trash on any particular authors because they are successful and we should learn from them, but I'd love to hear what you guys think while i'm mulling over future WIPs.

I'll start: I'd like to see more male MCs in YA and books written with more gender neutrality in mind.

I'd like to see fewer glorified unhealthy teen relationships that are see as "final". Most people don't marry their first crush.
