#VeryRealisticYA


The Powers That Be have pronounced Realistic YA (a la John Green or Rainbow Rowell) to be the Next Big Thing in teen lit. This past weekend, @aboredauthor started a hashtag topic on Twitter, which turned into a sensation. 
What if we all wrote Very Realistic YA? 
 

The rest is history. I was totally smitten (spent precious copy-editing minutes snickering at the computer.) If you’re on Twitter, check out #VeryRealisticYA . Here are my attempts:

·      Orphan farm boy hatches dragon's egg; dragon eats farm boy and sets fire to farm. #VeryRealisticYA
·      Girl discovers parents have hidden their past lives in a secretive organization. Turns out they were scientologists. #VeryRealisticYA
·      Small town boy stays in small town, marries small town girl. Gets job at the plant. #VeryRealisticYA
·      High school boy stops heart medication, becomes incredibly strong and muscular. Med was interfering with his steroids. #VeryRealisticYA
·      Girl tries to hide strange markings on her skin. Mother spots them and grounds her for getting tattoos. #VeryRealisticYA
·      Two teens with cancer meet, and decide they spend MORE than enough time thinking about cancer. They avoid each other. #VeryRealisticYA
·      Two misfits meet and find out that they have absolutely nothing in common. They never speak again. #VeryRealisticYA
·      Teens are trapped in giant maze and cannot find their way out. They give up and play video games. #VeryRealisticYA
·      Girl finds mysterious jeweled dagger in a lockbox under the bed. Sells it on eBay and takes friends to Belize. #VeryRealisticYA
