YA Lit Comes of Age


A fantastic article on the appeal of YA appeared in the LA Times yesterday. The piece explores the growing adult readership of young adult novels, as seen with the phenomenal crossover success of books like Twilight and The Hunger Games. The article sums up perfectly why I love YA, quoting author Lizzie Skurnick, who says:

“YA books are “more vibrant” than many adult titles, “with better plots, better characterizations, a more complete creation of a world.”

I couldn’t have said it better myself.

Check out the full piece here.
