Young Adult

As defined by the book-publishing industry, children are generally readers aged 17 and younger; many houses adhere to a fine but firm editorial distinction between titles intended for younger readers (under 12) and young adults (generally aged 12 to 17).   Young-adult fiction often deals with issues of concern to contemporary teens. 2000-2001 Writer's Guide to Book Editors, Publishers & Literary Agents by Jeff Herman (1999)
