TLT: Teen Librarian's Toolbox: Incest, the last taboo (A discussion of Flawed by Kate Avelynn)

With all the reviews of this book that are out there, I'll only say this:  Don't limit your reading to what you see as "appropriate" for grownups.

All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven- I read this for a book published this year. While I thought the writing itself was great and the book left me thinking, I was also disappointed in it. It was touted for lovers of Eleanor & Park and TFIOS (which I loved) and I really think there should be no comparison. It has a difficult subject matter, and one I feel should be addressed, but it also is very depressing and I worry about teens who do suffer from mental illness reading it.
