What do you need to know to break in to the flourishing young adult (YA) market? With humor and a solid grounding in reality, author Victoria Hanley helps readers understand the ins and outs of the YA genre, how to stay inspired, and how to avoid common mistakes writers make in trying to reach teens. This book includes unique writing exercises to help readers find their own authentic teen voice and dozens of interviews with YA authors, blogging experts, editors, and agents to give inspiration and guidance for getting published. Chapters include writing exercises and self-editing techniques tailored to YA, along with encouraging words on dealing with self-doubt, rejection, and lack of time.

MY THOUGHTS 
LOVED IT
For those of us who harbor a secret wish to someday write a book specifically for the young adult market that is so popular these days, this book will give you a good head start.  If you are not sure which direction you want to go in, there are descriptions of the most popular genres and how to market to those categories.  There are exercises that will develop your skills even if you have no idea where to start.  This is a valuable source for any author of any skill.  I thought this was really well done for a reference book and the author makes each chapter enjoyable.
