Question of the Day: Pushing the Envelope in YA



How do you feel about YA books having edgy themes, cursing, and/ or sexual situations?

If you're writing YA, where do you draw your line?  If you have kiddos or teens, do you let them read the edgier stuff and discuss or do you not let them read certain YA books?  Which YA book would you be reluctant to let your children read?  How do you think edgy YA books compare to what is on the tv shows teens watch?
