Young Adult Books Not Just for Teens!

Youth Service Librarians have been sharing the opinion that Young Adult books are not just for teens anymore.  Many adult authors are crossing over to offer great stories in this field.  You may have noticed that the Young Adult section has grown considerably in the last few years. Some adults I have spoken with agree that the stories in our young adult section are so interesting that they check those shelves on a regular basis when they visit the Annex.
