For those of you who are new here, Esther Earl was a nerdfighter who inspired much of The Fault in Our Stars and many projects in nerdfighteria, including Esther Day. Esther’s story, This Star Won’t Go Out, was published this year.
Esther’s family started a foundation in her honor, also called This Star Won’t Go Out, that provides direct financial support to families of children with cancer so that they can pay for gas and hotel stays and lost work and other costs associated with caring for sick children. The Earls are wonderful people who do great work, and you can donate to TSWGO here.

My Mom asked me to explain what "YA" in books refers to and why Slate hates it. Here is the conversation that followed:
YA stands for Young Adult.
Oh, and why is everyone fighting over it?
Because slate wrote an article saying after a certain age you should stop reading Young Adult books.
Which is funny cause one of the largest markets for YA is adult readers. The YA is marketing tacit anyway.
Isn't it written for teenagers?
Sometimes but it's anything a publisher thinks will do better in that market. Such as if the main character is a woman or a teenager, especially if they are both. Or if it's fantasy or sci-fi. They seem to think that market is more forgiving of those genres.
But isn't it at a lower reading level?
Not really it's anything over "Go dog, go!" but below pornography
The standard of genius has dropped terribly if I can get this.
