Young adult fiction, at its best, exposes the complex emotional terrain of adolescence: the joys of maturation; the pain, confusion, and humiliation of growing into a different self. Young adult fiction also tells necessary stories about what happens to girls and boys as they try to make sense of their bodies and their desires, their changing relationships with family, friends, and themselves.

I could say that each novel has been written for somebody, to convince somebody in particular. It’s almost an act of seduction. If not seduction, at least an attempt at explaining something to somebody.
