Question this Week
Happy Mother’s Day! Who is your favorite mom from fiction?
Libertad: I really don’t have a favorite mom. Parents are somewhat non-existent in YA novels and when they are present sometimes they aren’t realistic. They give their children way too much freedom but in the real world, you’d get grounded for doing 1/2 the stuff these kids do in YA novels 😛
Guinevere:Hmm…this is a hard one since so far most of the books i’ve read the moms featured were kinda spacey and didn’t act like real “moms”.Is it just me, or do most teens in YA novels have no parents or ones that pay them no mind? A couple others have said Ron Weasley’s mom, but i still don’t think she left a huge impact on me to go as far to say she’s my favorite mom. I’m still looking for that mom that reminds me of my own!If you can please follow us through Networked Blogs, Bloglovin and/or subscribe to our RSS feed or you can sign up through email.

  • True that parents are air-brushed out of many YA stories. Not surprising really when the kids are supposed to be saving the world or being superheroes. They can’t really have their mothers calling them in for supper or forbidding them to go anywhere near that alien spaceship. The mother In A Wrinkle in Time is a good one, but the best is Moominmama.

    • Jane I suppose that’s a good point.I never really thought about it like that. The reason Harry Potter can go out and risk his life is because he doesn’t have parents to go home to, in short nothing to lose.Thanks for visiting and commenting!

  • Thanks for the visit and the Follow! I am now following you by RSS in my feed reader.

    My first answers to the Favorite Fictional Mom question were Molly Weasley, Lily Potter (she gave her life to save her child – the ultimate in motherly love), and Marmee from Little Women. I had forgotten about the mother in A Wrinkle in Time (thanks, Jane D!).
