I don't know about the rest of you, but I feel that YA fiction has become overrun with stories about passive girls whose whole existence and reason for being relies on being attached to an impossibly handsome, other-wordly beautiful boy. Young girls, all women really, but specifically young girls have so many negative influences to combat, I feel the least we can do is give them some better role models in the books they read. I'm not bashing love stories, but girls need to know that there's much more to life! Like how about their own dreams and aspirations? Celebrating what makes them creative and unique? I think it's time for some new stories to be told with some new, more empowered, totally kick-ass heroines!
