Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Young Adult fiction (and, more rarely, nonfiction) is a publishing term for books aimed at readers 14 to 21 years old. It uses a slightly simpler vocabulary and does not assume certain experiences on the part of the reader. It usually features a Coming of Age Story. Since all of this is also likely to appeal to adults, it is often separately marketed to both demographics. Young Adult fiction can feature content deemed unsuitable for children, but also will often contain didactic content.

The rough Television equivalent is the Teen Drama.

Also see Children's Literature, for the next age category down.

While Light Novels are directed at young adult audiences too, they are on their own index for convenience.

For the 2011 movie, see Young Adult.
