My debut novel, which is being marketed to both general fiction and YA fiction audiences, is just over 100,000 words. So I guess we'll see if the higher word count affects the YA readership....didn't seem to hurt Harry Potter.
I like your site! What a goldmine of information!

I've gotten the impression that YA can be shorter than adult fiction - around 60,000 words. It's been a while since I did this research, but my impression for adult literature was that agents wanted at least 75,000 words, if not more.
