Young adult contemporaries are coming back! Have you heard? No? Probably because ... this is just a theory that I have. But as RT's YA editor, I also have a pretty accurate sense of the upcoming young adult fiction scene. And I'm excited to tell you that amongst the paranormal, dystopia, fantasy trilogies that keep on keepin' on (and don't get me wrong, some of them are just delicious), contemporaries are returning.
And just how are you going to tell when the contemporaries arrive? Well, for one thing? They all have awfully long titles as of late, as opposed to paranormal YA, which has been recently rocking the one-word titles. Don't believe me? Let’s go to the shelves!
