i was wondering if anyone could recommend any young adult books that deal with "adult" subject matter such as rape and physical abuse. i've read a book called _when she hollers_, by cynthia voight, which was excellent, as well as a book called _bee and jackie_ that deals with brother-sister incest. some of francesca lia block's books deal with these issues, and norma fox mazer, who has written several books addressing them as well, is coming to give a talk at the virginia "festival of the book" right here in charlottesville next week, so hopefully i will get to hear her speak. then of course there's robin's own book, _deerskin_ - do you all know of any other books that address these issues in an honest, sensitive way?

take care,
