  1. Why *does* it seem like every YA book has to have a love interest? Why can’t we have some more bad ass princesses going to rock concerts and buying shoes? :\

  2. I think a big part of it is that most YA books are written for girls and have female protagonists, and even though many of them are strong, independent girls, because of the audience, there is that love interest because teens want it. Teen girls just like to read about romance and first kisses. I know I did as a teen…and an adult. ;) But I’d still devour books without that aspect, and I think teens today will too. If you have a great story, teens — and YA-book-loving adults — will read it even without the kissing!
