What’s YA all about these days?

Publishers Weekly takes a look at the young adult market, in an article that begins:
The young adult market these days is a bit like a nephew you haven’t seen in years: transformed from a little darling into a hulking almost-grownup who is maybe even a little scary. Teen titles dominate publishers’ fall lists, and those books overwhelmingly feature menacing creatures, forbidden romances, and apocalyptic versions of this and future Earth. “Blood” is a common word in titles, as is “dark,” “death,” “deadly,” and even “darker still.”
Read the rest here, including speculation that vampires and fallen angels have finally bit the dust (or have they?) and that the tide of post-apocalyptic books hasn’t crested yet.
