when you read that article on Slate.com about Writing Young-Adult Fiction

at first you read it and you’re like

and you’re pissed

and the slutty werewolves are super pissed

and you’re like

BUT SERIOUSLY THO

and then you start to realize how RIDICULOUS the whole thing is

because Katie Crouch and Grady Hendrix clearly have no CLUE what the YA world is really about

if they did, they’d never write something so blatantly offensive to the writers and readers of these books. the books they themselves claim to be writing.

so you know what?

because at the end of the day
