One thing I’d love to see
Two books I read and loved recently, that are representative of something I’d love to see cross my desk:
Both books are about Issues (creationism and virginity, respectively) on the surface, but really they’re about teens figuring out what they believe when their received beliefs are challenged, both inside the context of their faith traditions and outside them. Both are nuanced portrayals of belief without even a hint of preaching. I’d love to see a YA novel along these lines, and kudos to Robin and Terra for crafting some truly gorgeous novels. If you care about teens or faith or both you’ll be glad to have read either book.
