YA Drama

I have not been paying any attention to young adult fiction drama for a while, but apparently I’ve missed something big. Author Keira Drake has been accused of racial stereotyping in her book, which led to a slew of one-star reviews on Goodreads.

Which has led to Harlequin pulling the book from their line-up (at least temporarily).

Has Harlequin ever done anything like this before?

The author has responded to the accusations, and it can (and probably should) be read HERE.
