Young adult literature is for readers aged between 12 and 18, although many adults are known to enjoy the genre as well. The conflicts the characters go through are relevant to teens. The protagonist as well as the majority of the key characters are in that age group as well. The protagonist is close to the experiences in the book; the story is not told with the hindsight of adulthood.
There is significant genre crossover when it comes to young adult fiction, and there is a romantic subplot in almost every story.
The young adult subgenres seen here reflect most, but not all, of what's being published today. Book Country's genre map will continue to change as new literary categories emerge and others fall out of fashion. If you write young adult or middle grade, explore the different subgenres to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
