As the Impossible Boyfriend trend continues to turn YA into Romance Lite, I have come across the following description of a new book out this week entitled Fallen by Lauren Kate:
The contemporary story centers on an alienated girl torn between two charismatic young men, unaware that they are fallen angels who have battled over her for centuries.
A vampire who has waited 170 years for you isn’t good enough, oh no. Now you girls must have two fallen angels who have been fighting over you for centuries.
To be fair, I haven’t read the book. I’m sure it’s a fine work. The first of a planned four-book deal. Movie rights already optioned by Disney.
Without the vampire fight element, will the Twilight Boys follow the Twilight Girls into this morass?
