Off to Canada for a few days later today. My oldest daughter and her husband live in Waterloo, Ontario, and so my husband and I make the trip fairly often. I always look forward to discovering some Canadian writers when I’m browsing the wonderful Words Worth book store in Waterloo.

I checked out the store’s site and noticed that this weekend they’re having a YA Dystopia fest, celebrating all the YA novels that are set in dystopian worlds. The Giver is perhaps the best known such YA novel. I suppose The Hunger Games would qualify too. Others? Of course, I suppose much YA fiction could fit under that banner because don’t so many YA protagonists feel their worlds are far from Utopian?
