As much as I like some of the new crop of young adult fiction, I can’t help but wonder if this phenomenon isn’t just rooted in publishers being squeamish and authors being lazy. The category allows — no, encourages — writers to be less nuanced, paint with broader strokes, and, of course, avoid sexuality altogether.

Then again, the YA Fiction phenomenon may simply be symptomatic of “non-young adults” non-reading.
