I love YA because of the stories and possibilities it presents to the world. YA has no time for throat clearing, and no time for pretention, because it has a story to tell. And the stories are dangerous, the characters are real, the worlds are engrossing… I love YA because I found a home for myself there as a misunderstood teenager, and as an adult writer who never wanted to “grow up”.
Why do you love YA? It’s November–the month of giving thanks–so let us know why you’re thankful for YA.
