#VeryRealisticYA Shows Youth Life Outside Of Carefully Constructed Teen Narratives

I spent my youth (and spend my present) reading as much YA as I can get my hands on. Some of it is more relatable than others, and some of it is relatable in sneaky ways despite it being set in worlds that do not exist outside its pages (or its big screen adaptations). All of it matters and all of it means something. But #VeryRealisticYA does something cool, too: It shows snippets of what the lives of actual real life young people often looks like, and that matters and means something too. Plus it’s pretty funny.    

Oh, and oof:

You can (and should!) see more over at io9 and on Twitter. And as io9 noted, the hashtag was created by a young YA writer, whom you can find here.
