I feel like I've been out of the loop in the YA world since I don't really write it anymore, but I noticed that there was such a frenzy in 2009-2012 surrounding YA that I just don't really see anymore. Even this section of AW seems to be a bit less active than it used to be at its peak time, or is it just me? How is the YA market changing, do you think? What does it mean for the gap between midlist and big name authors - that is to say are there more midlist authors than ever?

And if the YA book is gone then where has the enthusiasm moved to?
