Last week, YA author Justine Larbalestier hosted this guest post by teen reader and aspiring author Bysshe.
It's a fascinating insight into sex, violence, dystopia, romance, the lack of diversity and really, what's missing... from a teen perspective.
And it's a passionate message to we adults in the world of Children's Literature, from writers to editors to publishers to marketing professionals, about what teens want and need to see.
Thanks to Justine, for giving Bysshe the platform, and cheers to Bysshe, for being brave enough to put it out there and have their voice heard!
