Another take on adults reading young adult literature

Further to yesterdays post about adults reading kids’ books…

 Patricia McCormick, author of Sold, Cut and Never Fall Down, has a different take on why adults are reading young adult literature.  Below is a quote from her opinion piece also appeared in the NYT yesterday, although I was so annoyed at Stein’s piece that I didn’t notice it right away.

“It’s because adults are discovering one of publishing’s best-kept secrets: that young adult authors are doing some of the most daring work out there. Authors who write for young adults are taking creative risks — with narrative structure, voice and social commentary — that you just don’t see as often in the more rarefied world of adult fiction.”
