Paula Chase-Hyman on “why YA is the new hotness.”


In a recent article in the Examiner, Maryland YA author Paula Chase-Hyman gives 5 reasons “why YA is the new hotness.”

“With varied media framing the interest in YA novels as a resurgence, Maryland YA author Paula Chase-Hyman suggests that it’s not so much a resurgence as a refocus. She discusses more reasons for this shift in focus on a genre that brought us Judy Blume’s Forever decades ago and the Gossip Girl series today.”

Chase-Hyman’s 5 reasons outline some of the common characteristics of YA literature and highlight why the genre invites media scrutiny and attracts adult readers as well as teens.
