Trending Thursday: Where the Boys (and Girls) Are


Welcome to Trending Thursday, a periodic feature in which I discuss some sort of trend in YA.  Today I'm talking about titles again. Is it me or are there an awful lot of boys and girls in YA titles? 

At first I thought one gender was more represented than the other, but as I began to look for examples, I'm not so sure.

Ladies first...

  2. Great post! Huh, I've never actually thought about this one, and now that I am, I see what you mean.

  3. Interesting. I don't think "Man" and "Woman" are ever really used in adult book titles. Perhaps girl and boy are used to make sure people know the books are YA?
