I agree with many of these comments. Our writing should be real to life. Sometimes that means challenging those morals. I do think it's our responsibility as adults and as writers to show the consequences of choices that teens are making. I think of Ellen Hopkins's Crank. It was honest, but some may say that it shouldn't be shelved for teens to read. We need to be honest with our kids and not scared that they may read something shocking. I do agree with Janette when she said that many times in literature there is no consequence to sex. Maybe this is something more of us should tackle. (I'm working on it as I speak!
