There are other authors who use children in their books as villians, or use them as catalysts, victims...or childhood like themes in a sci fi-mystery-thriller type genre.

Who are some books?

Erica (bookpsycho) | 82 comments Stephen King has used kids as victims a few times. Christine is a good example. The main character starts out as a kind of weakling getting bullied, and ends up being an aggressor due to his car.

This is true. Do you like the use of children as victims or villians in books?

Erica (bookpsycho) | 82 comments I hate kids as victims and villains. When they are victimized, I want to beat the victimizer, and when they are the villains, I want to beat them. It's a no win situation for me.

Victims are a no go for me, but I understand making them so because it does exactly that ticks people off.

As villians, I love it.

Erica (bookpsycho) | 82 comments What I hate is when the child is the villain and no one knows until it is too late. They act all sweet and innocent, then stab you in the back. I yell at my book a lot when that happens.
