Three twenty-something urbanites reading, discussing and pointing out the crazy that is young adult fiction
(and sometimes real people lit, too).

Summing Up a Genre
I've been cranking through some young adult and some dumb adult fiction recently (yes, there will be a post on this). While some are better than others, the premises all remain pretty similar. Young, female heroine, doesn't realize she's beautiful/talented/special/amazing, etc., she falls for some strikingly dashing man boy and let the relationship/life drama commence.
Hand in hand with this, I think I've figured out the success of One Direction's current hit "What Makes You Beautiful." It's literally the premise for every single young adult fiction book I've read in 2012!
