The shelf life of young adult novels
Young adult novels are a definite force to be reckoned with. Some books are completely timeless, such as The Giver, anything Judy Blume, Series of Unfortunate Events, and soon to be (if not already) anything apart of The Hunger Games and Divergent series. These books are made into movies and fall into the hands of generations following their primary release. Some are even then instilled as required reading. How do young adult novels withstand the demands of time and generations? What keeps them so relevant and readable? What books can you think of that have done this well? Explore that.
