Cassie Clare today posed a discussion on her tumblr page addressing the growing amount of concerns and mail she's been receiving regarding the sexuality of her characters and also a particular scene in City of Lost Souls that involves sexual violence.
Clare addresses many concerns of her readers and discusses sexual assault as it pertains to fiction in today's society. This was such a great piece to read as it concerns not just fans of young adult fiction but all readers as fiction is written to reflect reality. Take a look at her posting because I found it to be a very informative discussion. I very much enjoyed reading her thoughts and beliefs on these particular issues.
Enough rambling, but please check out the post, it's a must read :)
