"Mum was c-r-oss and D-ad was cr-oss but B-illy did not care," read the Tar Man.

Then it was Tom’s go: “‘You must not pull your sister’s hair. It is not kind,’ said Dad.”

"You have made her c-ry, Billy … . What are you go-ing to say to her?"

"Sorry, Mum. Sorry, Dad," read Tom. "I will say to Amy that I will—"

"Drop her from the roof and that will cure her of her whining," quipped the Tar Man. "Confund this nursery fare. Where is the intrigue? Where is the wit? Where are the fulsome wenches?"

Linda Buckley-Archer’s The Time Thief

Peter did not talk of the hard times, when he had cried into the night because he could scarcely recall what his mother and father looked like and because he felt like an exile in a foreign country. Nor did he mention how Gideon had proved his friendship to him over and over again during those times and had remained steadfast and true even when Peter had screamed at him to go away because it was his father he wanted and not him. But it was precisely because Gideon’s own life had not been easy, and he had himself faced grief and regret and despair, that he was able to help. Gideon would always be patient with him and would wait until his young friend came to himself again. But how could Peter tell his own father the truth of how it had been? What good would it do?

The biggest three Young Adult literature franchises in the past decade have been Harry Potter, Hunger Games, and Twilight. All of them were written by women.

And it annoys the hell out of me. 

Because John Green has said and done some great, wonderful things. He’s also done and said some super shitty things. He’s written some decent books, and done some good charity work.

But he did not save Young Adult Literature. He did not usher in a grand new era of Young Adult Literature. If anything, he is riding on the coattails of women more successful than him in the literary world.
