When it comes to teenagers, I feel very strongly about getting the right information out to them when it comes to sex. Because of this, I started a discussion on my main blog, Ink and Paper, about sex in YA novels, and what readers thought about it. After further discussion with YA author Luisa Plaja, I thought it would be really interesting to find out how some authors of YA who actually focus on sex are tackling the subject. The Sex in Teen Lit Month idea was born.
