However, let's not forget that violence can be witnessed just by turning on the news or reading a newspaper or magazine. Some YA books may include violence, but it's nothing that teens are already witnessing on a daily basis.
Here are a few novels that include violence on a large scale:
* The Hunger Games (trilogy) by Suzanne Collins
* Rage by Jackie Morse Kessler
* Dark Inside by Jeyn Roberts
* Living Dead Girl by Elizabeth Scott
Do you have violence in your writing? Do you think too many YA novels have an abundance of violent behavior?
