56487 I think this genre- or label, or whatever you want to call it needs a new name. One that indicates who the audience is rather than the age of the characters.

I don't want my 12 year old reading House of Night just because it was in his 'section' of the library

56487 Luckily, my local library has children's, and YA separate. BUT- the YA shelves are basically right next to the children's shelves and there are not big signs or other things to specify the difference in age. And all of the House of Night books I've read are from the library.

It seems like there is a disconnect between what the industry labels as YA (and it's intended audience) and what us layman readers think YA is, and who the intended readers are.

And there is some sort of weird stigma (or was) for adults reading YA when there are oodles of YA not intended for kids or even teens
