Jodi Picoult allegedly dismisses all YA as featuring unclothed girls on the covers, thereby being unsuitable for her 13 year old.
If this is true (it's a secondhand account), I'd enjoy five minutes with Picoult to explain exactly how A. wrong B. ridiculous and C. potentially damaging to an entire genre (considering how wide-ranging Picoult's audience is) her comments were. I suspect this opinion/statement, if reported accurately, was formed by scanning the endcaps at her local Barnes and Noble.
I'm guessing Picoult has a local independent bookstore, one that no doubt stocked and sold her books long before she became a bestselling sensation. Perhaps she could take her daughter there and get a little re-education on the actual state of YA literature.
