On Love in YA
Sometimes it's frustrating to hear people complain that love in YA novels is not realistic. Because werewolves and magic and vampires are? Love is often the most realistic aspect of YA literature. And that is awesome. And should be celebrated. In real life or in books, love is as real and as magical as you let it be. Especially in YA, I value how much power love holds.
