A question: right now, are we writing YA for teenagers, aged 12 through 19, or are we writing YA for those of us not-so-young-anymore adults who devour them? I don’t have an answer to this question, but it’s something to think about.
It is queer, but my love and longing for the world are always deepened by my absence from it; it’s wondrous, don’t you think, that a person can swing from despair to gleeful hunger, and that even during these dark days there is happiness to be found in the smallest things? — Kate Morton, The Secret Keeper
