Scott Westerfeld and Justine Larbalestiere on the YA Fiction Boom

Justine Larbalestiere and Scott Westerfeld appeared on Cult Pop to talk about the why's and wherefore's of Young Audult fiction. Click on the image and go to Cult Pop 13. What Scott said:
Young adults are far more universal readers ... kids are more open to things ... they are less narrow.


  1. Then they haven't met my kids. They're the ones who are far less open - and won't touch YA lit! Talk about reversal of parent-child roles ...

    (P.S. I'm the mad American from that lunch who doesn't want to be published conventionally.)

  2. hi lee!

    ha! that's funny! but they're missing a wonderful world! maybe when they're older ...

    thanks for dropping in on my blog!
