I've noticed that the content in books marketed for young adults seems to be getting more adult. Which I think is fine for kids in the late teens. I would be hesitant about giving these books to younger teens - say between the ages of 12 through 14.
What do y'all think? Are all YA books appropriate for all teens? Or do you think there should be different criteria for the younger ones?
