I have been thinking about swearing in YA literature lately. I looked up the topic on the internet and most of what I found was from a writer’s perspective.
What I would like to ask is: how do readers of YA literature feel about swearing in YA books? As an adult or a teen. Tell me in the comments-it will be a great help in my endeavors!
I feel that most teens swear. Some don’t, and that’s fine. Or they are from another world that doesn’t have curse words. Also alright. But every day, downtrodden teens? They usually curse to relieve the stress and give their frustration a vocal outpouring. So there is the reality, but then there are the readers. You don’t want to offend those that don’t swear-or anger parents or schools. And when does it become too much?
