Recently, there have been a ton of Young Adult books being made into movies. Examples: Divergent, Catching Fire, Fault in our Stars, If I Stay

What are your thoughts on this? Why YA? Why now? Are they just better movie material? Or is it that Young Adult literature has finally found its place?

Mary Beth | 1 comments Young adults have the largest disposable income of any demographic. With summer approaching, they're ready to spend money at the movies!

Sarah (bisacsarah) Also, YA is one of the most popular "genres" as it speaks to pretty much anyone 12-to however old you have to be to stop caring about books. It's hard to find works that are cross-generational and so with a larger audience to pull from it would naturally be popular in any money making venture, i.e. film.
