Lauren Myracle's TTYL - Nymphets Squirting





I recently finished Lauren Myracle's ttyl. Before I read the Young Adult (YA) novel, I didn't realize that it was on the American Library Association's list of books people want to ban. Of course, I read it to review the age-discrepant relationship between the English teacher and Zoe, his 15-year-old student, but I was surprised when I read that:

  1. 15-year-old Angela was excited about the opportunity to fantasize about her classmates "summer sausage" when she did her homework 
  2. 15-year-old Margaret, "...ejaculates...she squirts when she comes." 
  3. 15-year-old Angela wanted to have a relationship with a bohemian Georgia State University (GSU) student, but he already had Leslie, a fellow GSU student, and more importantly, he didn't realize that Angela had a crush on him, and 
  4. 15-year-old Maddie danced topless on a table at a GSU frat party as camera phones snapped away. 

In terms of the English teacher/student relationship in the novel, Zoe was initially attracted to her teacher because, "... he's NICE. cuz he treated me like i was a person instead of a kid. that what was so great - we were just ppl having a discussion." They went out several times, but when Mr. H invited Zoe to join him in the hot tube with a pair of Speedos on, he "paralyzed" her and she ended the relationship. 


The fact that the genre is named, Young Adult, is very telling...
