The Legend of Eugene

Young Adult Fantasy | #TheLegendOfEugene #AprilMackWIP

He’s their Chosen One, but it wasn’t his choice.

After being snatched to an alternate world and forced to become their hero, all Eugene Tanaka wants is to be a normal teen again. He made it home and thought it was over. Turns out his actions as hero had unintended but serious consequences. Will he go back to save the people he resents from his mistakes? If he does, this could be his chance to cut the link between their worlds and spare future “chosen ones.” But then he may not see home again.

YA should be targeted at older teens and people in their early 20s.

A 13/14 year old is not the same as a 17/18 year old. Plus when I think of a ‘Young Adult’ I picture someone who is between the ages of 17 and 22. Not a young teenager.

We need a new ‘teen’ category
