The New York Times has a section called "Room for Debate" and they are currently debating about "The Dark Side of  Young Adult Fiction".  Many authors are weighing in on the issue.  Look who is debating this issue:

Paolo Bacigalupi author of Ship Breaker

Maggie Stiefvater author of Shiver

Jay Parini author of The Passages of H.M.

Scott Westerfeld author of Uglies

Andrew Clements author of Benjamin Pratt and the Keepers of the School 

Lisa Rowe Fraustino author of The Hole in the Wall

What do you think?  Do you read "dark" young adult fiction?  Why do you like to read "dark" fiction?  Who is right?
