message 1: by Melodie (new)

Melodie Are there any YA books on this subject written by men?


message 2: by Tremayne (new)

Tremayne Moore Melodie wrote: "Are there any YA books on this subject written by men?"

Yes. I wrote a fictional memoir from my perspective entitled Deaf, Dumb, Blind & Stupid.


message 3: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart There are quite a few books on this list that are not YA. Removed for wrong category....

Easy (NA)
Betrayal (NA)
Hopeless (NA)
Wait for You (NA)
Reconnected (adult)
Disconnected (adult)
The Year After (adult)
Mysterious Skin (adult)
She's Come Undone (adult)
The Coincidence of Callie and Kayden (NA)
The Redemption of Callie and Kayden (NA)

I'm skeptical that some of the other self-published titles on this list are properly categorized as YA, but I've left them alone for now.


message 4: by Janet (new)

Janet Morris Actually, Hopeless is considered young adult.


message 5: by Geri (new)

Geri Where's the rape part in Forbidden?

Boy Toy, Bar..."


All of what G. said plus the following book:
Deaf, Dumb, Blind & Stupid by Tremayne Moore (see my bio).


message 8: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart Ok, this list was a huge mess. Removed for wrong category....

Tandia (adult)
Missoula (adult)
I See You (adult)
Wait for You (NA)
The Year After (adult)
Yes Means Yes (adult)
We Believe You (adult)
To the Survivors (adult)
Trafficked to Hell (adult)
Tears of the Silenced (adult)
To Kill a Mockingbird (adult)
The River and the Sea (adult)
Treasures of the Night (adult)
Singular Female Voices (adult)
Feminism Is For Everybody (adult)
Transforming a Rape Culture (adult)
Asking for It by Kate Harding (adult)

Skeptical about some of the other self pubbed titles. If anyone notices something that doesn't belong, let me know.


message 9: by Saturday's (new)

Saturday's Child Melodie - Are there any YA books on this subject written by men?

Jasper Jones by Craig Silvey has a theme of sexual abuse that is revealed towards the end of the story.


message 10: by Rainbowheart (new)

Rainbowheart I find it disturbing that rape fetish erotica is at number 5 on this list. The MC is 18, but I don't see any way this should be classified as a young adult book. Opinions?


message 11: by Anahita (new)

Anahita Removed Something Girl by Beth Goobie which is about physical abuse only
