This spring, Mara's eighth grade sex education curriculum had a distinct tinge of abstinence, which I adamantly disputed whenever it came up. We agreed that, amidst the designer labels, decadence, drinking, and drugs, the first several books of the Gossip Girl series address the complexities of teen sex with surprising nuance. If you treat children as if their opinions count, as if they deserve respect, and talk to them - I think more often than not they will respond by respecting you back and talking to you. Anthropology of an American Girl offers no trite lessons, but it feels real. Discussing how to write sex scenes in YA fiction and providing several good book recommendations along the way , Baer argues that "if we treat our characters with respect, and write the scenes with honesty, we are fulfilling our responsibility. Most importantly, she owns her sexual desire and makes her own choices. I did want to add, as you noted in our correspondence, that FAIR GAME actually focuses on a gang rape, but interestingly, one of the protagonists has mostly untroubled sexual experiences of her own. Still, I knew Mara wasn't going to read Anthropology of an American Girl : its pages were clearly written not for teenagers, but for women who used to be teenagers. Indeed, I began to wonder if there was something wrong with me for thinking, like my friend, that good sex was something we had a right to expect in books for our teenagers.
