There is a particular conversation that keeps cropping up between Stacy and I the editors of this website…who both happen to be moms of young teens and many of our readers: the face of YA is changing. There is no doubt about it. Young Adult books are becoming more and more mature , and the trend will probably continue in that direction as more adults are reading them. Parents and readers alike are looking for clean teen books. Book publishers want to sell books, and when the average age of readers goes up, you can expect the content to change with it. This is a time when they are not yet comfortable with YA books but feel too old for middle-grade books. Did you read that? Our goal with this section of our website is to find clean teen books that are great for tweens, teens, or anyone looking for exciting books without sexual content and without excessive language. We have found that violence is usually not the main concern, but we will always make note if we think the violence is excessive even if there is no sex or language.
So what happened in book one?

First, there was the uproar from more socially-conservative folks and concerned parents over Ontario's revised curriculum in , which included the concepts of gender identity, sexual orientation and masturbation. Then last week, there was outrage from the curriculum's supporters as new premier Doug Ford rolled back the curriculum to its version, which many have said puts LGBTQ children in danger. As Ontario's education minister goes back and forth on what students will actually be taught in the classroom, we don't expect that sex education will be out of the spotlight anytime soon cue sex education sinking even lower into its chair, wondering if its forehead is shiny. And all of this attention got us thinking about how we learned about sex back when we were too humiliated to ask our parents or teacher about the hair down there or whether you could get pregnant in a hot tub. Perhaps we read them by flashlight under the covers of our beds, or confidently out in the open, while munching on a fruit roll-up and waiting for the "Sun In" we'd sprayed in our hair to dry. Either way, the s and '80s were a veritable goldmine of books that gave us many of the answers we didn't even know we needed at the time whether they were official sex ed books or not. While the books of our childhood nostalgia don't address many of the important sexual issues faced by kids today such as gender identity , same-sex marriage and sexting , they were informative and awkward and certainly worthy of a delve into our past. With that, here are some of our favourite sex ed books from our childhood, and what they taught us. What it's about: Blume's classic young adult novel tells the story of Margaret Simon, a sixth-grade girl without any specific religious affiliation due to her parents' interfaith marriage.
They are not God. I think there's a chance you two can find a way to agree on a lifestyle and values. I've told her that but maybe she doesn't believe me. Should one belief system or lack of one take priority and why.
