The Dead Dad Syndrome
I read an article this week in Publisher's Weekly about the abundance of orphans in children's and teen/YA novels. I had to laugh at this one because our family has noticed this before. My husband complains that all Dads in stories are either dead or really inept! And it seems like every time we start a new audio book with the kids, the parents are either dead or die in the first chapter! It's a great article - hope you enjoy it!
