A new Trope Talk video is up! This month we're chatting about the absent or clueless parent trope found in many young adult books. What does this trope communicate to teens? Why is this dynamic used so often in YA fiction? Does it serve a purpose? And what can we learn from it -- or take as a caution -- as readers and/or writers? Join us today for Trope Talk #2: What's Up with YA Parents?
