New-Adult Fiction and the ALEX Awards

I don’t know if you have heard of the latest development in the publishing world, but a new category has been created; New-Adult. This category arose because publisher’s felt there needs to be a name for a novel that features a protagonist that is legally an adult, but still finding their way in the world and learning to be an adult.

Some examples you can check out at DPL:
