Are you ready for it?
Have you recovered from the shock yet? Because there's more. . . .
All sarcasm aside, the books featured in the YA section were very much similar to what I'd witnessed back in the states before leaving. There was a big emphasis on fantasy and plenty of dark, Gothic looking covers.
I can't say whether this is a true representation of the YA market in Germany, as it was only a book section in a big store, not a bookstore itself. But I have a feeling there wouldn't be very much of a difference on the shelves.
