Why adults love young-adult literature
Ironically enough, first loves might also be one of the hardest things to capture in words — but, luckily, we have books for that.

So what or who are you waiting for? When Catherine and Elliot first meet at the tender age of 15, they become best friends immediately. But just when life starts looking up, Elliot leaves town. The last thing that she expects is for sparks to fly when she meets Saul Angert. Amy Curry needs an escape.
Young Adult fiction books
When Laura Bradbury arrives in Burgundy, France, for an exchange year at 17 years old, she is determined to fit in with her host family and their community. This means learning local customs and skills and adapting to the general rules — including a disapproval of dating. Unfortunately, the local young men are very charming and Burgundy seems to be made for romance.
So why are adults reading and enjoying! It seems that this was the first time that a mainstream YA book became acceptable for adults to read and for many this is where the love affair began. A lot of fiction books fall hard into specific genres, such as chick lit or sci-fi, whereas YA books are far more likely to cross over. For example, The Hunger Games series were post-apocalyptic, but with romance in them, and the Twilight books were fantasy mixed with romance — YA loves a good love story! In fact, often the love stories in YA books are the reason that adults enjoy them.
