Hey all! While I am the author of a book that may fall into the realm of Young Adult Historical Fiction, my sense is that the line between Young Adult and Adult is something that has faded in recent years. In terms of generational abilities to read, and vocabulary/topics inherent within, I don't not perceive any difference between words or topics that distinguish the two potentially different segments. As a result, I implore any reader to stretch themselves above and beyond what is expected of them per what others perceive as being appropriate based on a number such as age. For example, I am certain it is no secret to anyone of any age that those of the same age are either less or greater in terms of intelligence, vocabulary, success, etc. This doesn't need to serve as an activity of grouping you into a segment you cant break out of. In fact, it provides insight into where you may leverage any situation to your favor. Break out, be yourself, and grab life by the horns. If you are in high school (or middle/junior high school), aim for the BEST college in the world. If you are in college, aim for the BEST career path you can consider. But in the long run, all that matters is who you are, and what you are capable of contributing to a society that depends on you. Will you add to it? Will you be there to solve problems past generations left to you? That is entirely up to you, but really, that is what the future holds, because that is what the generation before you has had the pleasure of grasping. At this point, I wouldn't be a true author without plugging my book, The Kykuit Bunker, but in the end, whether you read my book and discover the secrets about government, money, and history, or not, I wish to start my membership in this group in saying that I enjoy keeping up with what is what in today's society, for without other people, and the interactions we share, we are really just sitting on a blueish-green marble with no 'real' direction whatsoever.
