If you click on a link called "Gossip Girls and three-ways: visit our smokin' hot teen zone" on the front page of this new lit mag, you'll arrive at a thoughtful essay about a mother's uneasy truce with the "embarrassing new world of way-too-adult YA titles." (She has complaints about King Dork, which is why my google machine alerted me to it. The description of the library's "teen zone" is quite funny and there's some truth there -- but it's also funny, perhaps, in the context, that it's being used as a link-teaser.)

Looks like quite a good magazine, btw.

She's basically arguing that babies could read these because the baby section is adjacent to the kids section which is adjacent to the YA/teen section? Does she realize that adjacent to the teen section is the adult section and somewhere in there is the romance section? OMG time to freak out and ban kids from libraries!
