Sex in Teen Lit Month II

Sex in Teen Lit Month II

There have been some fantastic books covering sex in YA published since I held the first Sex in Teen Lit Month back in 2009 to 2015, when I held this event, 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 was being held. This event was being split into two; Part 1 looked at sex in YA in general, as per the first event, but Part 2 focused 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 highlighted and discussed them as part of the event. Below is a list of posts from the event.
