the subject came up with books my friend and I grew up with in the past decades. Oddly, we talked about the Baby Sitters Club that we read as preteens. It was very youthYA and seemed simple right? Until we brought up Stacey, who was 13yrs old and meets her bud Kristy’s brother who was 17 for the first time and she’s instantly smitten with him, and how she figured he was too with her (he does appear to be attracted to her). (nothing came of it in the series, they say hi from time to time with her saying if she was just older) And my friend and I were surprised we didn’t much of it reading back then, but now we’re stunned.
And Sweet Valley High, where we were laughing today that they had over 200 books from that series and they managed to have zero stories dealing on sex/and who was sleeping with whom. Or even teen pregnancy?(correct me if I’m wrong) It was never discussed in their high school times. Only when they went to college and beyond.
