I'm not sure where it comes from, but I actually think realistic young adult novels today are changing that. I can't speak to every book, of course, but I've read many novels that show a grittier, more realistic vision of addiction, and mental illness. I can tell you that for me, personally, one of my goals while writing DIE FOR YOU was to address the type of romanticization you're asking about. I wanted to strip the romanticism from the idea of "dying for love." I wanted to show it for what it is: manipulation and emotional abuse. I hope that answers your question. Best, Amy(less)
Amy Fellner Dominy Hi Christine. Thanks for thinking of me. I think you mean the list of books by Jewish authors? Yes, I'd love to be listed there, as well. :)

Had a great afternoon at the North Valley Regional Library in Anthem. Love talking books with teens, and hanging out with an uber-talented bunch of Phoenix authors (Kate Watson, Amy K. Nichols, Tom Leveen, Abigail Johnson & Stephanie Elliot.) Plus, there were cookies, too! All around a perfect day.

This is the 8th book in this series and I think that I've read them all over the years. SEP is a master of romances with heart and humor. As always, there was plenty of banter, characters motivated by deeper insecurities, and a HEA. Happy sigh.

A story about an orphan, creepy old ladies with a sinister plan, seances, a drowned girl, a deaf housekeeper and a happy ending. I picked this up because of the author, Laura Amy Schlitz, and found lots to like in this quirky story.

This reminded me a lot of The Girl on the Train. A mystery...a possible murder...a main character who is not certain she can believe her eyes...a few twists at the end. A fast and fun read for anyone who loves mystery-suspense.
