Young Adult Contemporary

Young adult contemporary fiction is a teen category set in a contemporary, realistic setting. It's often written in the first person point of view, and is marked by the emotional, evocative voice of young adult books.

There is significant overlap between genres in young adult fiction, and stories often incorporate elements of two, even three, subgenres. For example, John Green's The Fault in Our Stars is a crossover title for young adult contemporary and young adult romance fiction.

If you write young adult contemporary, explore the subgenre to connect with other like-minded writers, workshop, and publish your book.
