Sex in Teen Lit Month II is Here!

Sex in Teen Lit Month II

Sex in Teen Lit Month IIHi everyone! Sex in Teen Lit Month II is finally here! It's taken well over a year in planning, and there were a few set backs and a postponment along the way due to life, but it's starting today, and it's going to be awesome!

There have been some fantastic books covering sex in YA since I held the first Sex in Teen Lit Month back in 2009, and I'm a much wider YA reader now. It's been really interesting to see where things have moved forward since 2009, a change that has led to a change in how Sex in Teen Lit Month II is being held. This event is being split into two; Part 1 will be looking at sex in YA in general, as per the first event, but Part 2 is going to focus on sex crimes and crimes of a sexual nature. There have been quite a few books published covering such topics, especially over the past year or so, so I'm going to highlight and discuss a few of them here.

For now, here's the schedule - the first post for Part 1 of the event will be up later today! This post will be updated as the month goes along with links, so be sure to check back.
