I find myself irked that To Kill a Mockingbird (invoked by mentioning the name of its author, Harper Lee, who never wrote another novel) is constantly described as YA nowadays. It was written as "adult" (in those days, equivalent to "not children's books") literature in 1960. And it won the Pulitzer Prize.
Also: "Sure, it's simple, writing for kids. Just as simple as bringing them up." - Ursula K. LeGuin
Why does everything need to be categorized into these little boxes? (That was rhetorical: I believe the answer is in fact "marketing.")
