Either I just didn’t notice the phenomenon before, or young new writers are getting really fucking unoriginal. Teen novels are just coming out of the “guess what a sexy broody vampire fell in love with you and now you’re sucked into a world of vampires and sexy blood ooh some other mythical creatures too” theme and into the “lets watch young kids beat each other senseless and call it honour and skill and knowledge and courage woo I can kill defenseless beings with guns and bows and arrows” theme.
Do all teenagers need fucking anger management classes now?
What’s next? “You fell in love with a sexy nazi zombie during the apocalypse Holocaust and you took an aptitude test that told you how you’re the only nondescript 16 year old with mild self-esteem issues that can unite the four nations because everything changed when the fire nation attacked”
