While Young Adult literature focuses on characters in their early to late teens, NA tells stories about characters in their early adult years: typically ages 18-30. Books about characters in their 20s are nothing new. In the ‘90s, Chick Lit emerged as the genre that bridged the gap between YA and romance novels, often focusing on characters in their mid-to late 20s. But while Chick Lit deals with some of the same issues as NA—finding love, succeeding in the workplace—it has…
