One thought on “Dystopia in YA”

  1. I think Bacigalupi hit it right on the head. Teens are far more aware of their world than most adults give them credit for (I can remember the passionate debates we had over the Iraq war in my hs freshman humanities class, for instance) and the news that they hear is almost uniformly bad. Twinkly fairies and cupcakes just aren’t going to cut it.
