Remembering Who YA Fiction is For
Wetta understands the importance of creating (and marketing) YA fiction for young readers of all backgrounds and interests.
I want to be sure there are books for all sorts of teens represented in the category of YA fiction. When adults start appropriating YA literature, and marketing firms start defining what young adult literature is and who it is for and talking about these books in terms of profits and sales, I can get defensive. YA literature should first and foremost be for teens. (YALSA the Hub)
