TBT 02: What is YA?

What is Young Adult Fiction? Join us for a lively discussion as we pick apart the unique characteristics of YA and what makes its style and the audience it addresses distinct. While some would argue that the writing style is simplified, the ideas juvenile, and the main characters teens, others believe that there really is no difference between YA and other genres due to the complexity and depth of modern YA and that it is just a marketing strategy.
