Although I read several genre, young adult/children novels is what I enjoy writing. I have read several in this genre including JKrowling's works. She sets herself apart with her style...I have to wonder though, what makes her books so good? Why do people crave them? Is it the characters? or the story telling? I have yet to read any one else who writes in this style (any suggestions? I would like to compare)....and while *I* have enjoyed the books...I am amazed at how popular they are.
