I watched a short segment on the Today show that questioned the age that models should be. A 13-year-old is modeling adult women’s clothing and it raised the question of how young is too young. I think that the same can be said of heroines in novels. How young is too young?
As I get older I want a slightly older heroine (no 18 year olds for me!) but I still don’t want to read about someone my age. Pretty weird, huh? How do you feel about this issue? While we’re at it, what about the hero being younger than the heroine?
