What is YA Lit?

Mary Pearson has written an excellent article discussing the question of “What is YA lit?” and the attitudes and opinions some people have of it. She uses great examples that dispel some of the ideas one might have about what makes something YA lit. I’d love to plaster this article in a lot of places because I feel like some adults – particularly some educators – brush YA lit to the side, lumping it with chick lit-type silliness. I wish more people would recognize the richness in the variety of YA lit – it is just as varied as the adult fiction market. Ms. Pearson says all this in her article, and much better than I do. Check it out.
