So many movies are coming out for "Young Adults", many of them starting as YA novels. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole "Hunger Games" series and the movies, so far. I feel that "Divergent" flexed my imagination more than most books I've read.
What exactly is "Young Adult"? I don't really get it.
- Older Adult
I have searched many sources and keep coming up with an age range. Taking the two ends of the spectrum from them, a young adult is anyone between 12 and 24.
That being said, I worked in and managed a children's bookstore for many years and the rule I learned there and from a couple of conventions I went to of the American Booksellers Association was that there must be a teenage protagonist. This may not be the case any longer. It is in the case of both "Divergent" & the "Hunger Games" series.
