In my extensive research on YA books I have discovered there are certain recurring themes and elements: prophetic dreams, girls with secret destructive powers they didn’t know about, and boys who pretend not to like girls they are totally crazy about, because they want to protect them, to name a few. I could say all of these are cliched and formulaic, except I have used them in two of the three novels I’ve written. So I’m going to say they demonstrate a deep understanding of the adolescent psyche.
