The Quantum Series
A Siobhan Murphy Mystery
Young Adult is fiction written, marketed, and published for readers aged between 12 and 18, although adults are also known to enjoy these novels. The majority of the main characters are in the teenage age group and the story is told with the hindsight of life as a teen, making the conflicts the characters go through relevant to teens everywhere. Young Adult novels are most typically stories that focus on the specific challenges of youth and are sometimes referred to as coming of age novels. Some issues written about in Young Adult novels are friendship, peer pressure, love, race, money, divorce, and relationships with friends and families. The themes explored are often what are most important to adolescence and growing up.
