This thesis provides three case-studies of different posthuman YA (Young Adult) novels to exemplify how the text, a piece of information technology, functions as a posthuman prosthesis for creating and transferring narratives to the YA audience from the authors. Simultaneous to this, it will also critique power dynamics that exist between parental and adult figures and the YA protagonists vis-à-vis information technology. In doing this it will emphasize not only how posthuman frameworks are utilized in the text but how that, in turn, is a meta-analysis of how the authors are utilizing the text to push their own didactic messages and how a denial and discarding of the posthuman frameworks used more often than not correlates to didacticism and fulfillment of authorial desire rather than YA empowerment. Questions that will be addressed are matters of what level of responsibility the author has in their disproportionally powerful role of author in relation to their audience and if YA literature can realistically embrace the posthuman despite the polarity in their respective ideologies. Finally, when considering the novels chosen, there will be consideration for if the novels do a proper job and if they are an example to follow for more progressive discourse.
