Not about me, about a character and I have a question. I'm doing a paranormal YA type novel that is going to be a bit darker/edgier side of YA. In the same aspects of how some YA have sex in the books but other YA doesn't. etc. Now my novel starts out with the MC dieing in the first few chapters and being a paranormal YA people don't always stay dead. In her case, she is on her way to become a werewolf. In the opening chapters she is having this romantic anniversary picnic with her boyfriend (both are 17) and I thought about having him give her a promise ring. Then things kinda go to shit. They end up in a cave and before they escape to safety she gets mortally wounded by the wolf. When she wakes up she is going to be in the hospital but it is going to be a little over a week later and she is going to find out that she actually died and was sitting on a slab in the morgue and when the corner went to do an autopsy and cut into her she bled (which doesn't happen because the heart stops). The realization hit me that it is possible in the meantime, when everyone thought she was dead, her boyfriend might actually commit suicide. Now, the question is, is this far to dark for a YA novel?
