Huh, you class Novik as YA? I wouldn't, and they're not marketed as such. Adult novels that teenagers can enjoy, absolutely: but all the protagonists are adults, the writing style, length, and way they approach subjects like war and sex is a better fit with the adult market. I have yet to see them put in the YA section of a library or bookstore.

Which I think supports my belief that it's normal and desirable for teenagers to read adult novels. The line between YA and A is pretty fuzzy.
