Editing Emma features the word 'masturbation' more than any other book I've read. It's crazy, if you think about it, because most of what I read is contemporary YA. The genre is supposed to be realistic. It's supposed to tell stories of what it's like to be a teenager: school, friends, heartbreak, family and everything in between, so you think there'd be more talk of sex. Go you, Chloe.

When 16-year-old Emma is 'ghosted' by the boy she is 'dating' (they were dating, right?! She didn't just imagine it?!), she creates a private blog to write about the life and thoughts of this new heartbroken-but-refuses-t0-be-defeated Emma. It's the perfect way to document the positive changes she's making in her life, from finding a boyfriend who will treat her right to stalking Leo's social media profiles. Wait, no, she's definitely meant to be stopping that.

Kalliste I was quite surprised on the first mention of masturbation and her count of orgasms! If only more YA had that so teens (especially girls) knew it was normal and OK to do.
