Popular children's book author Lemony Snicket, writing in the NY Times, says:
"Want Teenage Boys to Read? Easy. Give Them Books About Sex."
Actually, my YA novel "Come Sit By Me" has some sex in it, but it's also about the world as seen through the eyes of a real teen-age boy. A teen-age girl who reviewed it said,
"I felt Come Sit By Me was written by a guy for a guy."
--Christina Li, Net Galley
