Middle Readers v. Young Adult Literature
For example, I just finished the book Eleanor & Park, a YAL book that takes you on a journey of a relationship between two 16-year olds.
Check out the Sunday NYTimes Book Review section to see the best selling list for both categories. Age-appropriateness is listed for each book. It is important to keep in mind that there is a definite distinction between middle readers and YAL.
If you want to learn more about the differences, read the middle reader Wonder and the YAL book The Fault in Our Stars.
