The Last Taboo in Y.A.?

Old Open Bible

150 year old open Bible with copyspace

I’m not a Young Adult author, but I found this piece from the New York Times intriguing. What do you think? Is “religion” as a central topic actually taboo (outside of the Christian publishing world,  I guess)? Have you read or written mainstream Y.A. books that seem to address religion in the sense that the author seems to mean—and I’m not sure I understand exactly what she means.

Again, what do you think?
