purplecat: Hand Drawn picture of a Toy Cat (books)
I'm not a big fan of Young Adult literature, I'm not entirely sure why, especially given that many people have told me that some of the best fantasy being written at the moment is being written in the YA niche. I think it may be that I'm really just not so interested in teenage rites of passage and those seem to be pretty central to the genre. So it has to be a pretty exceptional YA book to really grab me. I'd say that Zahrah the Windseeker by Nnedi Okorafor-Mbachu almost managed, but in the end it was a little too much of a travelogue, and not quite enough of a coherent story to pull me in.
