Book Review | When Your Favourite Book is Problematic

Bitten is one of those books that I loved when I first read in my late teens, but growing older, I see the flaws. But what isn’t flawed? Just because something is problematic doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it. It’s up to you to discern the truth and judge what you consider acceptable, and act accordingly. No one can tell you what to believe or what to think. Your integrity will always be dependent on your ability to consider the information presented to you, and form your own opinion.

I’m Jay Phoenix, and I’m a Canadian YA writer and Pop Culture/Mental Health vlogger. I recently graduated from University, and the world is a bit weird and wacky right now. I need time to create.

All I’ve ever wanted to do is help people. Most would ask how I expect to do that with a degree in Creative Writing and Asian Studies, but the world needs to hear what I have to say.

You Matter

The world is beautiful and diverse, and that needs to be reflected in our fiction. Growing up, all I ever wanted to see was myself reflected in the books I read and the TV I watched. I never did, and neither do millions of others across the world.

It’s series like Percy Jackson and the Olympians, and the Raven Cycle that inspire me. Young adults with learning disabilities. Young adults that struggle with mental illness. Young adults that are gay, asexual, trans, Black, Hispanic, or Aboriginal.

So here’s the problem I face. I can’t create content that matters for young people while working a full-time job. Writing and creating is a full-time career of its own. I want to finish writing my epic YA Sci-fi series that I started 3 years ago, edit the pilot of a YA TV series I’d like to see created, and continue to make content for those who seek acceptance or an escape, but I’ve never had the time to finish because of the daily struggle to pay the bills and eat.

Please help me change the world.
