Hello, I’m writing a paper on the phenomenon of YA literature and was wondering if I could have a moment of your time so that you can reblog this post with your answers to my survey. Any questions you do not feel like answering is perfectly okay, I’m only asking to get a sense…

Age: 20

Occupation: student

Location (just the country is fine): Pocatello, Idaho

When did you start reading YA Lit: 13 or 14

What books have you read: hunger games,  pretty little liars, private, nicholas sparks books

Why do you think dystopia is such a popular theme in YA Lit: i definitely think it has to do with the imagination as well as it applying to the real world we live in. I think it is more life like to our generation 

Do you think feminism is accurately represented in YA Lit (why/why not): sometimes. I mean in the hunger games i do think they portray feminism as justly, but within other series there is not equality. But then again, maybe the feminism and inequality add to the story line

Who, in YA Lit, to you, is a “strong female character? Why: Katniss Everdeen, Basically she is what holds the structure up for the whole story.

What did you/do you feel adolescents take away from YA Lit: sometimes i think they believe it is more real than fiction but i do find that it’s necessary for us all to have an imagination. OUr generation has more imagination than the generations before us i believe. I think many times adolescents see the benefits of being strong in what you believe and do, which explains why so many in our generation are a bit rebellious and strong minded. 


Just a pool, disguised as a pond, with a trampoline instead of a diving board.
I wrote a paper about these kinds of pools several years ago for a class when they were just prototypes. These pools have a natural filtration system that run based on the plants that are in the pool that give the water nutrients that allow it to not only be crystal clear, but you are also able to drink the water because it becomes so clean. And the best part is that once the initial filtration system is installed and calibrated, it maintains itself and eliminates the need for chlorine or constant maintenance like salt water pools.
