Abstract

Abstract: In this paper we refer to a segment of literature for young people, which is more prevalent in the literature. Namely, it is a subgenre known as "teen sick-lit", or novels for young people under the theory that this literature refers to this type of novels that are problematic adolescent health, be it physical or mental illness, depression, eating disorders and so on. This paper specifically examines a rare novel in literature for young people, "Green horoscope" in which the author spoke about some issues that are still considered taboo in our literature for youth. Namely, it is a difficult topic of incurable disease as in this case – AIDS, when people suffering from it are isolated and abandoned, as it is the topic of sexual violence / pedophilia. However, the central problem is to show the strength of youth who they can find it in themselves, and in the desire for life. Keywords: Literature for Youth, disease, AIDS, "teen sick-lit".
