    In lieu of an abstract:

    Young adult literature scholarship is fascinated with identity: with the identity of YA as a field, genre, or marketing category; with the identity of YA’s creators and readers; with the identity of the characters who populate the pages or pixels of its primary material; and with its own identity both within the multidisciplinary umbrella of YA Studies and as an area of research that is related to, but distinct from, children’s literature scholarship. Given this fascination, it seems pertinent to take a moment in this first editorial to establish our own identity as the International Journal of Young Adult Literature.
