I would say about 75,000 words which roughly translates to 150 or more pages in a mass market size book. I think the longer novels don't always appeal to a lot of young readers. The average adult novel is approx. 150,000 words.
I heard that young adult minimum is 50,000 and no longer than 75,000 duusmom is right. If they are longer the young crowd tends to run.
The good news is one of the leading readers of YA novels are moms and house wives and growing.
I am 30,000 words and growing but I stopped to edit and re-think what I have already written. Before I conclude the next 30, or so thousand words.
Great Luck bushcwc
Duffsmom / Daisy - Thanks for the input. I'm writing a Y/A novel aimed at teenage guys (tough audience, I know.) My initial idea was to go about 90k and I'm at 30k now, but I'm sure I'll shorten it once the initial script is finished. Good to know I'm on the right track.

I am in the middle of drafting a hub but am finding it to be getting quite long with a lot I still want to include. Is there a recommended (or actual) maximum length that a hub can be and is there a precedent for dividing into multiple linked parts?Many thanks,Rob

Suggest Young Adult books you want reviewedI read a lot, and I write a lot too. If you'd like book reviews for the Young Adult genre please add the title here and I will review it if I have read it, and read the book if I have not. Unless it's something too terrible to even get through the first...
