Young adult fiction (YA) is a category of fiction written for readers from 12 to 18 years of age. While the genre is targeted to teenagers, approximately half of YA readers are adults. The subject matter and genres of YA correlate with the age and experience of the protagonist. Common themes related to YA include friendship, first love, relationships, and identity.

The study of young adult literature (YAL) as both an art form and teaching tool is in its infancy. Barely 50 years old, this emerging genre began to establish a presence in the canon of both classical and popular literature. As a developing field of inquiry, however, YAL struggles for legitimacy and prestige.

Angela Johnson's career as an award-winning young adult novelist almost did not happen. Like so many would-be writers, she had decided to pursue a more financially stable career: teaching. But in the end, Johnson abandoned the familiar―and seemingly more secure―and became an author. Her first picture book, Tell Me a Story, Mama, conveyed Johnson's talent as a writer and left readers hoping that more books were forthcoming. And come they did. Her picture books were concise, poetic, and memorable. But some wondered, could she write compelling YA literature?Her first book for adolescents, Toning the Sweep, proved that indeed she could. Sparse, poetic language similar to that found in her picture books made its way into her YA novels, and it caused quite a stir amongst critics. Now, with over forty books to her credit―including board books, middle grade novels, and young adult literature―Angela Johnson, who refers to her writing as unschooled and undisciplined, has made a major contribution to the field. Of her writing, Johnson says, "For most of my life I was a passive participant in my writing. It was something that I did because I didn't have any choice. If I never got anything published, I would still write. I woke up: I wrote poetry. I went to sleep: I wrote poetry." The author who says, "I am learning as I go," has certainly proven that she is an exceptional writer. Being a three-time winner of the Coretta Scott King Author award, 2004 winner of the Michael L. Printz award, and a 2003 recipient of the MacArthur "Genius" grant, is only the beginning for this talented writer.
