It seems like most young adult books are romantic stories, whether or not they have a sub genre. Books like The Hunger Games, Maximum Ride, and The 5th Wave always have a heroine who falls in love with a fantasy dream boy. Of course it is natural for girls when they reach their teenage, but it looks like most of these books are trying to be like Twilight. And maybe that is the reason why most boys are turned off from those books. I enjoyed one of those books, but I couldn't stand how emotional, serious, and romantic these books sometime explore. It would be sexist to think the YA genre is only for girls. And writers are probably too focus on pleasing their female readers. If I write a YA novel, would it have to be targeted to girls?
