Gateway - Christina Garner I really have tried my best to like YA. But when they continually to be suppressed by twee clich├ęs it hurts. The protagonist obviously needs an unusual name. The romantic interest obviously need stunning eyes and a mysterious air about him. The teenage characters obviously need to be unhinged and some kind of outcast. The writing doesn't need to be good. Just give it a pretty cover and they will but it. The day I find a good YA book will be a good day, indeed.
