Young adult historical novels (YA historical novels) include many well-written novels that appeal to both young adult readers and older adults. Individual listings of books include recommendations for the age or school grade of readers, if currently available from the publisher or a guidebook such as RoseMary Honnold's The Teen Reader's Advisor. Another widely available reference is Hannah Logasa's 2007 book, Historical Fiction - Suitable for Junior and Senior High Schools. Age/grade guidelines are very general: parents and teachers should consider a young person's individual taste and maturity when choosing books for teens or younger children. Most young readers probably know from experience how to interpret age guidelines.

Has spent 5 years writing a novel of historical fiction - it's on amazon for kindle since she couldn't find a publisher
I read the first half and didn't like it at all (she's had success as a writer of children's books and this reads like young adult fiction). I'm also not a big fan of historical fiction in general
She's quite annoyed with me that i don't like it and she has asked me to write a rave review for amazon which i refused to do since I don't lie.
I figure that my being honest with her is actually doing her honor but it is interesting how much people would prefer to be lied to.
