*Disclaimer: I am not saying that anyone is a bad person nor am I labeling anyone as "wrong." I want to clearly express my opinions in a calm manner that will hopefully encourage conversation and change if needed. I am addressing something I see as a problem just as you have addressed problems in the past and hopefully continue to address problems in the future so we may all learn.
*Disclaimer: The quotes listed below are from active members in the YA/book community.
Thank you to the many people who reached out to me on Twitter and shared their stories and quotes. This post would be nothing without the conversations we've had, the stories you told, and the courage of your voices.
