It’s YA that is pushing at the boundaries of sex and gender, asking readers what it really means to be male or female, and questioning the very root assumption that “male” and “female” are the default and only options when it comes to gender. YA probes at human sexuality, featuring a variety of relationship configurations and personalities interacting with each other in a way that feels not simply genuine and authentic, but also more reflective of the world we live in today, one where gender and sexuality are more fluid than ever before.
