Sure lots of adults (like us!) are reading YA, but are the stakes different when teens start reading adult books? And what about when their favorite authors write for both age groups?
We had lots of questions, which is why it's a good thing that we participated in the BEA panel, YA Authors Crossing Over, on the Midtown Stage at the Javits Center this Wednesday.

Suzanne Collins is kind of a tease.
There! We said it. We feel a little better now.
The diabolical (and diabolically talented) author read the first few pages from her upcoming Hunger Games trilogy ender, Mockingjay, Wednesday night at a Scholastic party in her honor.
The first few pages of Mockingjay. And they are good. We can't reveal much more, mostly because we promised not to, but also because we were so entranced all we really recall for sure was looking at each other and mouthing the word "AWESOME" as she finished reading.
The rest of the BEA crowd, who'd traveled downtown to the Scholastic rooftop in Soho, seemed to feel the same way, as excited whispers broke out through the crowd when Collins slyly pulled a few manuscript pages out from her copy of Catching Fire.
"Why, what's this?" she teased before delving into the Mockingjay opener.
At this afternoon's author signing at the BEA, fans were in for a real treat. Authors were signing books, answering questions and enjoying the chance to meet readers. RT Assistant Web Editor Whitney Sullivan caught up with Richelle Mead, Anna Godbersen, Justine Larbalestier and Cecily von Ziegesar to talk with them about their new projects and the convention so far. Be sure to check out the GIVEAWAY at the end of the post!
While Richelle Mead was signing, she took time to bond with fans over their shared Michigan roots, commiserate about the weight of everyone's bags, and share that she'll be at the RT BOOK LOVERS CONVENTION in L.A. in 2011. Meade was excited to learn that fans are already buzzing about the cover of her next title, The Last Sacrifice.
At the "You're Reading That?!?" Adult/YA crossover panel this morning at BEA, Barbara A.Genco of Library Journal hosted a collection of authors and industry personalities. Genco kicked off the panel by talking about the enduring power of crossover reading material saying, "YA authors continue to strike a chord with adult audiences." Each panelist went on to discuss a different aspect of the idea of Adult/YA crossover reads.
Lizzie Skurnick, columnist and author, among other titles, Shelf Discovery: The Teen Classics We Never Stopped Reading, said, "we can learn about the future of YA from what books for childred used to be." She spoke at length about how the way that teens used to read adult books (noting Jaws and Clan Of The Cave Bear as two such titles) and now adults read teen books.
