It's all about locaton : YA literature locations and availability to teens
Young Adult literature is a newer genre that is slowly gaining traction with teenagers and adults. It is a genre that is marketed directly to teens to show them that they are not alone in their experiences. However, this genre is not always readily available to teenagers. I analyze three different types of places in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where teens may look for Young Adult books: libraries, large retailers, and bookstores. Each place was analyzed for its use of displays in or around the section, placement within the location, size of Young Adult collection, and variety of books for readers to choose.
