YA books are not just for kids
They've now entered the stage where threats of reduced book buying allowances have been met with counterthreats to borrow books from the library and friends instead and hide those as well. I spent most of the phone call making sympathetic noises while trying not to burst out laughing. Honestly, I understand the pain of someone who has just finished volume three and desperately needs to read volume four to discover how everything turns out. But at the same time, if a teenager is going to pick a fight with her mom, having it be about books is a pretty good problem to have.
