My young adult literature convention, YALC, talk of choice for the LFCC weekend had to be I'm Too Sexy For This Book, a discussion of sex in young adult fiction. At the back of Earls Court a stage area has been set up. Every seat is filled with many interested spectator's standing. The talk is presided over by James Dawson, author of Cruel Summer and Hollow Pike.
Dawson begins by stating that his head is feeling a little lighter than usual. 'Rosie', he yells as a smiling women runs in carring a crown on a pillow. After a round of applause Dawson thanks everyone who voted for him as Queen of Teen. 'The public has spoken and you love me'. The charsmatic author declares that this talk will have sexy content, 'so those who do not like sexy content are welcome to depart now'.
