New Adult

New Adult is a relatively recent literary genre that emerged in the early 2010s. It targets readers who have outgrown Young Adult literature but are still interested in coming-of-age stories that explore the challenges of transitioning into adulthood. New Adult typically features protagonists in their late teens or early twenties, and the themes often center around self-discovery, identity, and romance. Unlike Young Adult literature, New Adult is generally more explicit in its language, sexual content, and mature themes. The genre has been criticized for its limited representation of diverse experiences and for perpetuating certain stereotypes, but it has also gained a devoted following among readers who appreciate its authentic and relatable portrayal of young adulthood.
