New Adult fictionNew Adult literature is the hot new trend. Most agree that the New Adult age range is 17-27, others say 18-26, or so. Other terms for NA include: Upper YA, Crossover Fiction, and Mature YA. NA characters are often portrayed experiencing: college, living away from home for the first time, military deployment, apprenticeships, a first steady job, a first serious relationship, etc. When I was a New Adult, back in the late 70s to the early 80s, the big thing for me was learning how to manage money. After college, I felt disconnected and had to remap my home life and my social life.
