Genre Bending: YA becomes Mature

27 Feb

Young Adult books. Sweeping the nation. Earning accolades and loyal readers of all ages. But sometimes YA is a good idea but has to pull some punches due to its more PG-13 story telling.

This playing it safe got us thinking what Young Adult book would make a really good adult fiction work? You know there are plot points or crucial decisions to be made in a YA story and it takes a more gentile way out of the woods. What if the YA world was given a more mature peril and resolution?

And what about a favorite adult fiction work, could it do with some YA juice to give it a new life? Bend a genre and let us know what you think.

What say you?

    I misread the title as “Gender bending: YA becomes more mature”. That would’ve been cool.

    The Angel Collector by Bali Rai is a YA book which is thrilling, scary, shocking and unputdownable! It HAS to be read! It would need no or very little modification for translation into the adult book world…
