What would you read?

What do you want in a novel?  What is too edgy for YA?  Would you read about a suicide? A cutter?  Being Cyber-Bullied? Is profanity realistic in a novel or too realistic? How far is too far? 

I am a current instructor and prior teacher turned writer.  I have written a YA novel about suicide, ODing,cutting and being cyber-bullied...........  I have been told it is too dark; you tell me -

What is too dark mean?
