In my twitter stream this morning, I found this tweet from @readingrants
I followed the link to @bkshelvesofdoom’s blog, then followed the link to the New York Times article they’re referencing here. The statement that got me from the article (which you should go read) was:
The need to tell a good story gets in the way of the message.
You’re kidding me, right? Since when does message come before story? Mind you, I’m all for bibliotherapy. I practice bibliotherapy on myself all the time. I think young adult literature can be great starting place for conversation. But it’s always about the story.
