Young Adult Historical
Young adult historical books are set in the past and written about the past, as well as featuring a teen protagonist. The narrative occurs in a period of some historical significance, usually prior to 1970. Historical detail, accuracy, and authentic atmosphere are key.
There is significant overlap between genres in young adult fiction, and stories often incorporate elements of two, even three, subgenres. For example, Code Name Verity, an Edgar award winner, is a crossover book for historical and mystery/thriller teen fiction.
If you write young adult historical, explore the subgenre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
