I am tired of people pretending it is okay for kids to read about world ending violence but not their own sexuality. #KeepYAHonest

#KeepYAHonest because the kids who read aren't all suburban & white from stable homes. They come from all walks of life & deserve more

There's nothing too "adult" about LGBTQIA content. About poverty or sexual desire or anger or whatever. #KeepYAHonest for all kids.

Because a lot of things about what "should be" in YA is coming from adults who led sheltered lives. #KeepYAHonest for kids.

#KeepYAHonest because the kids who read it are going through all manner of issues & they need books that reflect them. Not you.

Sidenote, I am doing my best not to start a #KeepYAHonest tag about the lives of young adults & it is so hard to resist.

#KeepYAHonest to show queer teens that there is a life out there for them and that they are not broken, or wrong, or bad.

#KeepYAHonest because not all (many) of us have the benefit of lives where we fear nothing and feel safe always.

#KeepYAHonest and keep yourself honest when you say that you write FOR teens, instead of merely yourself or your assumptions about teens.

#KeepYAHonest because MAYBE if I'd had more queer books, it wouldn't have taken me 29 years to figure it out.

#KeepYAHonest because books saved my life. Many times. I want that for other teens.

#keepYAhonest & include girls who are mean in HS, who aren't sugar & spice & everything nice, who don't conform to societal expectations

#KeepYAHonest because everyone deserves to see themselves positively represented in more than one book, especially kids and teens.

#keepYAhonest where are the stories of immigrant kids struggling with culture clash and poverty when these kids exist & this happens daily?

Thanks, @Karnythia, for starting #KeepYAHonest. Young adults should have access to resources/materials that empower them to live full lives.

And frankly maybe if we'd gone more towards #KeepYAHonest I would have figured out the whole ace/aro thing a little faster.

#keepYAhonest and include teens from everywhere, those uncomfortable conversations (to you, policing adults) about sex, drugs, violence, etc

Totally support the #KeepYAhonest trend - we should be promoting/prioritizing stories that speak to teens who feel unseen and unheard

'Cause I hate to break it to you, but there aren't actually any sea serpants or whatever reading your book. :P #KeepYAHonest

Why are we more okay with books about mythological creatures than marginalized characters? #KeepYAHonest

#keepyahonest & write about the girls who crack under pressure, who want revenge, who fly under the radar and quietly plot.
