According to Sheila B. Anderson, author of the book Serving Older Teens, teenagers are “drawn to stark realities and gritty details” and have “an element of morbid curiosity.” In turn, this makes them “want to read about other teens who are in the midst of problems, whether those problems relate to relationships, death, homelessness, or any of the other social problems featured in young adult literature.” As themes such as drugs, alcohol, and relationships are a common part of teenage life, it is only natural that teens would want to read about people like them who are going through similar situations. These themes and ideas are prevalent in a specific genre of literature – young adult novels. Young adult novels often chronicle the lives of young people and the issues that they encounter, reflecting the same situations and sentiments that young-adult readers experience in their own lives.

I’m going to be writing my paper on a song called “Crooked Smile” by J.Cole, J.cole or Jermaine Cole, was originally born in Germany. When he was 8 months old he and his mother moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina. He attended St. Johns University and graduated with great distinction, he got introduced to music when he was 12 by a family member and ever since then he has been infatuated with rap music and the art of storytelling through music. I feel as though the thesis of this song is simply this, why feel the need to impress someone who doesn’t care about you or why let your insecurities stop you from being great? I also sense that there is an underlying meaning inside the song that promotes not catering to the conformity of society, such as you don’t need a “perfect” body and an amazing face just to be a star to yourself.
