Unwind

Unwind - Neal Shusterman For future prosperity, i.e. to remind myself why I shouldn't ever read these books.

Stop. Trying. To. Like. YA.

You never will.

Teenagers are self-absorbed, fuck-obsessed, mindless little drones, or so these adult YA authors are leading us to believe. Unrequited love, bullies, no big worries because what do they know of The Real World? Were these authors ever even children? Did I miss these days? Why hasn't anyone told me about this. Where was my invitation.

Stop trying to be so hipster, and cool, and popular.
