Young adult literature is fun. Sure, novels aimed at adults can be really wonderful too, but there is something particularly magical about YA. Books aimed at teens tend to grapple with themes of first experiences, major life changes, and self-discovery, all of which continue throughout adulthood. However, because these are new issues to the adolescent audience of young adult literature, they are written with an urgency and profoundness that makes YA books hard to put down. There is absolutely nothing wrong with reading these books as an adult; in fact, the youthful voice in which young adult novels are written can spark a fresh perspective on important issues that span far beyond the teen years.
