San Francisco, California (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
Author and homeschool mother Emma Right (web: emmaright.com), an up and coming young adult book author of Kindle bestseller and Award Winner, adventure fantasy, Keeper of Reign, Book 1, and her latest young adult psychological thriller, Dead Dreams, announces the best books for young adults list for 2012-2013. The list recommends newer books such as Divergent and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, and older ones like The Printz Honor Book, The Book Thief, and also Classics like Pride and Prejudice.
As someone who has dedicated her last seventeen years to teaching youngsters, including her own five homeschooled children, Right believes that the appropriate books can empower and uplift a young person to lead moral lives and encourage them to explore a higher calling, rather than focus on the self, whilst some popular books will not only promote loose living but encourage impressionable readers to experiment in wayward thinking and even warp their minds into believing that some of the ideas promoted in fiction are acceptable, or even appropriate. Take the case of Bella Swan in Twilight, a book categorized as a young adult fantasy, targeted at readers ten and up. The image of a damsel in distress that Bella Swan portrays and her attraction to a much older man (Edward was born in 1901) paves the way for young girls reading and living vicariously through this teenage protagonist to yearn for such a co-dependent relationship. The moral question that arises is that: is this what we hope for young adult female readers to aspire toward?

In the hopes of promoting a list of books with healthier themes and containing less profanity, Emma Right has come up with a list of the top 100 books young adults could enjoy, with both high entertaining and moral values that hopefully will steer teens and young readers to evaluate social and life issues. Although it is true that censorship is not something to strive for, it is important that children who are not ready should not be hooked into the subtle suggestions that some fiction tries to promote. The mind of a young reader is a fertile ground for both good and bad thinking to sprout roots in, and fiction has the power to drive an idea where non-fiction cannot tread.
Providing young readers with the right books is like giving them the suitable tools needed for success in adult living. This will help children grow into the adults we hope our society will be populated with in the future.
