the glamorous struggles of an aspiring author...

The YA fantasy market is saturated, so I am told. But I wonder how saturated the appetite of YA readers is. I think YAs want what they always have wanted, a story about somebody that could be them, not to be talked down to, with plenty of pace and lots of heart. YAs are feeling their responsibility and their ability to make a difference. Those are not fantasies but realities, and novels that make them feel in control of a wild universe feed that reality.
