Healey here does something rare in YA science fiction (which we are thankfully beginning to see more of lately). This is not a dystopia, though the world has its problems, but it's not a utopia either.

Teach Me Tonight: CFP: Popular Literary Genres

Teach Me Tonight: CFP: Popular Literary Genres | YAFic | Scoop.it

"Genre has become an increasingly significant part of academic and popular criticism since the year 2000. From Steampunk to Crunch Lit, Young Adult to Nordic Noir, new genres have arisen to sustain fiction and popular culture markets in the new millennium. Issue three of C21 Literature asks if the politics of genre can offer insights into developments across the first thirteen years of the twenty-first century. If genre development is a process of evolution then how and where do these genres originate – and what are the intertextual and historical frames in which they operate? The journal calls for articles examining developments in genre across the twenty-first century."
