Is there an "age limit" for YA Novels?

SparksofEmber | 13 comments No age limit. I love YA Novels usually. I think I like them because it's the age where people typically experience and change the most but I couldn't really say for sure.

SparksofEmber | 13 comments There's also more room for their mistakes and growth as they are younger. When older people do foolish things, it's less excusable.

Carol Childers | 5 comments I find them interesting. Some of them give me insight into what teens are thinking and some are just fun. I want to know what teens are reading. They are surprised when I've read some of the same books that they've read. I like discussing books with teens and hearing what they think about the books.

I still remember some of the books I read as a teen - some of them had great impact on me. Some of those were recommended to me by librarians, too! Thanks for what you do, Carol.

Such a valid point!
