I agree that this kind of pathos is seen in MG/YA books all the time. But I actually kind of like the idea of it "almost happening" in kids' books, and then happening "for real" in adult books. That said, I'm guilty of killing off some important characters in my young fiction as well ;-).


Hmm, the convergence of this post and a review I read (http://www.rtbookreviews.com/rt-daily-blog/why-john-scalzis-redshirts-must-read) makes me want to read Redshirts even more. Living with a Star Trek fan, I've always thought of those secondary characters who end up dead as redshirts.

Do you have any video of that? I'd want to find out more details.
