I went back and reread the first book, a few months ago. I was surprised how well it held up. I was also surprised by its bleak, paranoid and sometimes macabre atmosphere.

schizo. those books probably fucked up my sense of logic and reasoning somewhat. fuck "childrens" authors who write nonsensical bullshit like that.
>>
>>17624246
I think all children's media must be designed to make us retarded.
>>
>>17624246
How is it schzio. It’s probably the most realistic take on adult relations (as an adolescent book) with orphaned children and their exploitation of said children.

>>17624265
I haven't gone back to look through the series in over a decade, so my memory is a bit fuzzy. I just recall feeling like absolute shit after finishing each book from how grim and helpless everything felt. As a child, you look to adults for help with anything, whether that be a teacher or a parent. The adults in the books were quite literally retarded, other than the absolute supervillain of an antagonist. 13 damn books of the kids presenting totally valid evidence and begging for help from everyone around them to no avail, even after proving themselves right time and time again to multiple witnesses. The whole thing is a ironic comedic take on real life as you mentioned, but it fucked me up as a kid from how backwards and nonsensical it seemed.

I really like that one book where the sister or mother are taken over by the parasite and she patiently waited... then one day using her control over her left eye she crashed her car. Dying but in the process freeing herself from the thing that had taken over her body .
>>
>>17621663
I remember reading one of those as a kid. It was about a race of peaceful alien giants, with blades growing from their forearms. They lived on colossal trees and used their blades to remove the bark, which they ate. The planet was invaded by a parasitic and aggressive race who infected some of them, and they had to learn how to fight for the first time in their existence by killing their own. I wish I remembered the name, it really didn't read like a YA novel either.

>animorphs aren't naked when they turn back into humans
Fucking dropped, even as a kid that made no sense to me.

These books turned me into a furry, they need to be banned.

That was the point. The series ends with a giant war that kills some of them and then everyone getting PTSD after

I wanted to say Magic Tree House, but I don't know if it counts straight up more as children's literature rather than YA, which is what OP asked for.
That said, it's basically the only book series that I really got into as a child. Only one I really remember anyway.
I mean I read Animorphs and Harry Potter and shit but honestly I didn't particularly love them. In the case of animorphs for example, I liked the concept, but I didn't care for any of the characters that weren't Tobias, the style of writing felt just weird to 90% of the time, and I also didn't have the opportunity to read them often enough that there weren't huge gaps in my knowledge of the story when I did get to read it.

Back to the Magic Tree House though, the author also wrote this, and I really loved it as well.
