The Trailer for Every YA Book Ever

Ever stayed up at night, wondering desperately what the book trailer for every YA novel ever would like? Okay, maybe not. But here it is anyway!

To all YA writers and readers: I, teen writer Emilia, apologize in advance for creating this abomination video. It's, uh, sort of awful. But after watching The Trailer for Every Oscar-Winning Movie Ever, I was overcome with THE URGE. Cheesiness, silliness, and general debauchery follows - because that's pretty much what trailers are made of.

As it's so eloquently put at the end: YA 4EVER, dudes! Although the genre-pattern stereotypes featured here can be lame to find in a book, when they're handled correctly, they can also help form the literary backbone that makes YA awesome (except, yeah, the token minority thing is just lame).

Truth is, I missed a ton of great stuff - what else belongs in the trailer for every YA book ever?
Emilia Plater

Emilia is a YA author who avoids studying, food that isn't covered in cheese, and waking up before 10:30AM whenever possible. A bundle of confusions.

  8. YES!

    You forgot that either one or both of the parents are dead. Or dying. Or abusive. Or negligent. Or stupid. Or whatever. Anything but normal, loving, parents.
