Welcome to the blog world and the kidlitosphere!

I think that beyond the basics and the obvious situations - the content, swearing, so forth - another difference between teen fiction and juvenile fiction is the content and depth of the character's problem, and how his or her view of himself or herself or other people or the world is changed. There are juvenile books that are coming-of-age bildungsromans with such important lessons, so eloquently told, that they resound just as much with teens and adults. There are teen books that are trashy for trashy's sake (for popularity's sake) and there are those which show the delicate balance of that age between childhood and adulthood.
