I’m thrilled to debut a new feature on Almost Grown-up called ‘Would You Rather YA Wednesday!’
Basically on Wednesdays, I’ll pose a ‘Would You Rather’ question related to YA lit that I’ve either thought of myself or had presented to me by someone else.
If you’ve got a Would You Rather question in mind, feel free to leave it in the comments!
If one of the series pulled a Twilight and ended in one of the main characters getting PREGNANT… WOULD YOU RATHER it be Veronica Roth’s Tris of the Divergent Series or Lauren Oliver’s Lena of the Delirium series?
First off, let me just say this: PLEASE DON’T KNOCK EITHER OF THEM UP. I prefer my main characters to be adults before they procreate.
But. If I had to choose? Lena.
Because when compared with Tris, I think Lena would be a whole lot more maternal and one of the themes of the Delirium series is love… in all its forms. I can imagine her as a mother– SOMEDAY. Plus she is a little older than Tris.
But when I think of Tris with a baby I imagine her holding it out at arms-length from her, with a terrified expression on her face and asking “What am I supposed to do with this?”
Plus. I feel like you can’t have a baby in Dauntless.
But I will have more thoughts on Dauntless babies in the near future.
