Young Adult Fiction – the cream of the crop

Young Adult Fiction – the cream of the crop

Fiction written specifically for young adults is one of the fastest growing genres in publishing. This month’s Goodread’s newsletter is devoted to the latest young adult fiction, featuring writers as diverse as J.K.Rowling, with a book of short stories from Hogwarts, to James Dashner, with the latest in his Maze Runner series. Young adult fiction comes in all forms, but often has a protagonist in the age group of the target readers, someone to identify with. Is that what you look for in a novel? The newsletter features crime, a tale of growing up in North Korea, a story set in the aftermath of 9/11, sexual violence, and, of course, fantasy. You can view the Goodreads newsletter here and even sign up to be a member and receive monthly updates on the latest books to hit the shelves.
