Young Adult Fiction has always brought us wonder, imagination, and magic. Whether the books are about struggling teens trying to find themselves or young people with special powers and magnificent destinies, young adult fiction is a wonderful way to open yourself up to the possibilities and impossibilities in the world.
Young adult fiction is not just for the young, or even just for the young at heart. Young adult fiction is a great way to reintroduce those caught up in the chaos of adulthood back into the wonder and innocence that was our childhood.
As an adult, stress, responsibilities, and chaos are simply a part of our daily lives. Why not sit down with a good book and lose ourselves in a land of discovery, magic, and imagination? Young adult fiction can take us away from the woes of the modern world and into the past, the present, or even the future. It can show us the powers of witches and wizards or even take us on a journey across the stars. No matter what age you are or your situation, you could benefit from reading a young adult fiction novel.
These books tell us stories of friendships and first loves, and what is was like to see and experience things for the first time. It is a great way to jump back into that innocence, to realize how hard the simple things used to be and learn to appreciate things more. A good book can teach us about the meaning of friendship, something most of us forget after a few years on our own.
When I was writing my first novel, REINCARNATION, which will be released soon, I had to look into my past a relive some of the best feelings in my life. I took bits and pieces of my first love, a connection which was so strong I don't think I will ever top it. I remembered how gullible I was and how much my life was filled with wonder. I remembered how, as a child, I truly believed that magic was real and that I had a great destiny. During the process of writing REINCARNATION, I think I was the most inspired since grade school. Young adult fiction really can bring back the best of our childhoods and make us believe again.Young adult fiction can show you how to love again, rekindle the old flames of youth in your heart, and you can learn from them, learn things over again that you thought you already knew. The next time you are at the bookstore, the library, or browsing on your kindle, see if there is anything that might strike a fire inside you once more.
