    Not a comment on Pinkwater but a comment on the term “Young Adult” I see on here all the time. By the age of 13 I had already read (and understood and enjoyed) Animal Farm, Lord of the Rings, Paradise Lost, the bible, plus heaps of ‘adult’ genre fiction and I don’t think of myself as being particularly exceptional. To me the label ‘young adult’ seems patronising to young people and alienating to older people, and is therefore a marketing failure. What exactly is a ‘young adult’?

    OK, maybe not exactly ‘enjoyed’ Paradise Lost or the bible but you get my point
