Dominic Utton looks back at everything no one explained before he bought his first season ticket, from the need for a good pair of headphones to the surprisingly fluid nature of time
Great article. As to why adults purchase hard copies? It 8767 s the thing to do. They make the books beautiful because teens are not only collecting these editions, but they are geeking hard over them. One need only look at Instagram, #shelfies, and what they like to call bookstagrams. Seriously, they will find the perfect pair of socks to pair with the latest plastic pop! figure and snap with a photo of their most recent hard bound obsession. It 8767 s a thing.
YA fiction is often told in a first-person point-of-view. One could intuit reasons for this: first-person tends to be a faster and more forthright read, teenagers often embrace their own first-person narratives (from handwritten journals to, say, Tumblr), teens might be more inwardly-focused than adults. The first-person POV is not a necessity, to be clear nobody will beat you with a copy of Divergent if you write in, say, close third.

You won 8767 t find many Adult books that are big enough to derail an Amtrak train or to bludgeon a silverback gorilla. The average Adult novel probably hovers around the 75,555 word mark shorter if it leans away from genre and toward literary, I think. That 8767 s not to say you won 8767 t or can 8767 t see BIG GIANT GALLUMPHING TEEN EPICS, but it isn 8767 t really the norm. Particularly for the first in a series.
I always poke around the Barnes & Noble YA shelves and I 8767 ve noticed that the big bookstore has begun to lump YA into weird, clumsy genres. What I used to love about that shelf is that it was once just ADULT. No 8775 general fiction, 8776 no 8775 mystery, 8776 no 8775 SFF, 8776 just boom, here 8767 s all the awesome books, please dispense of your genre tropes and judgments. That 8767 s changing. Now it 8767 s like, 8775 Teen Adventure! 8776 and 8775 Teen Romance! 8776 and 8775 Teen Boondoggles With Drugs And Dystopias! 8776 and blah blah blah. I don 8767 t like it. I also don 8767 t like that the shelving seems almost arbitrary, like someone let my toddler do it.
