4. Itโ€™s Important

Iโ€™ve found that YA fiction, perhaps more than any other type or genre of book I regularly read, is the one that presents the most challenges and asks the most important questions. Think about it; your teenage years represent a time where you work out who youโ€™re going to be;

where you first really discover the prejudices you might face your entire life; when you first fall in love. Iโ€™ve read YA books that deal with coming to terms with sexuality, transsexuality, race, death, coping with bullying, heartbreak. Not that adult fiction doesnโ€™t address important issues in its own right, but I think YA gives us unique insights that shouldnโ€™t be ignored.
