The Dark Side of Young Adult Fiction

There is an interestig conversation going on at the New York Times about the trend towards dystopian fiction for young adults.

Literature with dystopian themes is certainly popular here at AIS.  Is it escapism, or is it because you perceive that the world you are growing up into is a dark and dangerous place?  I’d love to know what you think.  /JD
