Industry Trends: Young Adult Fiction

Industry Trends: Young Adult Fiction

by Jennifer Silverwood, December 20, 2018

While young adult fiction is written with a teen audience in mind, a majority of readers are adults. When we think about the timeless themes, from experiencing first love, first tragedy and the first taste of independence from adults, it’s easy to see why. The magic of young adult stories, like all good fiction, allows the reader to relive those experiences through the perspective of our teen protagonist.

Teen fiction covers a variety of subgenres, while relying on similar coming-of-age themes. Modern young adult fiction has lately broken ground by tackling controversial issues of the day. There is more to offer in this genre than ever. From classics to fantasy and subtle social commentary, we’ve got a mix of everything for you with this month’s industry highlight. We hope you’ll enjoy celebrating the cover love with us. Let’s talk our favorite YA books in the comments below!

**The following releases come from either Amazon, Kobo, Google Play or Barnes & Noble’s top 10 to 50 lists, excluding box sets. Links to product pages included.**
