“The morality of the book is more complicated than a lot of YA so I wanted to try doing it on my own.”
Okay, Scott. Take a seat. What you’ve written isn’t ingenious or original, and basically stating that YA is oh-so easy to write. In this interview, Scott little respect for YA fiction, and those that write it. It’s always disheartening to see some guy saunter in and claim to be writing what no one else is, especially when women have paved the path long before him. Is it really that hard to just respect other authors, and stop claiming to be some brilliant and profound author? Sorry to burst your bubble, man, but you’re nothing special, and neither is The Cruelty. I’m honestly shocked that he’s somehow gotten a six-figure deal for this trite story.
