Middle Grade vs. Young Adult: What's the Difference?

Publish date:

The MigWriters site has an amazing post breaking down the difference between the two children's categories of middle grade and young adult. To define the two, they pull a lot of good info from a variety of different sources - editors, agents (such as Lucienne Diver of The Knight Agency) and writers alike.

It's just a big, fat post tackling tough questions about these categories. If you're a kids reader, this is a post you want to read. Questions they address include the following:

  • How long is a MG vs YA book?
  • Who reads MG and YA books?
  • How old is the protagonist?
  • What are MG and YA books about?

Simple yet immensely informative.
