Young Adult books are often considered a genre of their own. However, Young Adult (or YA), should really be considered a proposed age range that encompassses a wide variety of literature. This age range is typically considered to be 12-18, "teenager", "teen", or even "tween". However, this is just a rough approximation- YA books can be read by anyone! YA Lit features teenage protagonists but can span over many genres such as fantasy, realistic, horror, historical, and action. There are even YA graphic novels!
