For this study, young adults are defined as eleven- to nineteen-year-olds. This
parameter ensures that middle and high school students are included, and
younger and older individuals are less likely to be represented. WHAT ARE
YOUNG ADULT BOOKS? Because individual biological, social, and intellectual
growth varies from one young adult to another, it is difficult to determine what
constitutes a young adult book. High school reading assignments have
historically been littered ...

This definition was very broad and included not only "young adult” books but also
, significantly, books written for children and adults but read by teens (Cart, 2010).
Today, young ... Rather than rehash lists of criteria or features of the genre, to
articulate our own definition we will stick to a rather simple but helpful defining
characteristic of young adult literature. We suggest ... Markus Zusak's The Book

Many texts covered in this book, however, were published after 1999, a time
period when young adult literature becomes more concerned with complex
narrative strategies when telling Holocaust stories. Some examples of excellent
and challenging recent texts for young readers are The Book Thief with its
multimodal presentation and macabre narrator, Postcards from NoMan's Land
and its interwoven narratives told 60 years apart, and T4: A Novel in Verse, all of
which I discuss in ...

... this definition? If it's not a genre, what's the glue that holds it together as a
category? The one defining characteristic of YA literature is its audience. Young
adult books are written for or marketed to teens. That's it. Take almost any other
element and try to use it to define the whole and you will find it falls short. Do YA
books always feature teen protagonists? Most of the time, but when you look at
books like Nancy Farmer's The House ofthe Scorpionand Markus Zusak's The
Book Thief, ...

Experimental: As the name implies, experimental fiction for young people defies
definition — although it's safe to say it embraces creative storytelling. Take
Markus Zusak's The Book Thief, which is narrated by Death himself. As you may
expect, Death doesn't feel bound by the conventions of traditional storytelling.
Deborah Wiley's Countdown uses scrapbooked elements to supplement the
narrative story, and M. T. Anderson's The Astonishing Life of Octavian Nothing,

Shen Hanying, the managing editor of a new Chinese form for young adults, the '“
mook'”or magazine-book, explains: I want to give a dream world to girls who like
to dream: a rose colored fable, a glittering crystal conservatory, an extravagantly
lovely pumpkin carriage, miraculous rose magic books, candy houses
overflowing with fragrance and love, a place where you can drink your afternoon
tea in the sunlight while reading lucid, transparent, romantic fairy tales. (Cited in

Markus Zusak's The Book Thief, Carrie Mesrobian's Sex and Violence, and
Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games. Think about your characters and how

The BBYA lists of the past seven years are full of books that focus on family life
from the teen perspective. An examination of stories for teens that explore family
life could easily be a book in itself, but suffice it to say here that two larger trends
seem particularly observable on recent BBYA lists: families in crisis and the
definition of family. Books about families in crisis include a number of themes,
such as pregnancy, abortion, and adoption; neglect and abandonment by
parents as well as ...
