This review article is a collaborative autoethnographic exploration of Australasian Young Adult writing compiled by the contributors of the ‘Why YA?: Researching, writing and publishing YA fiction in Australasia’ TEXT Special issue. The contributors to the special issue were asked to produce a brief review of what they considered an important Australasian YA text, and why. While the range of narratives examined in this article (and the special issue as a whole) demonstrates the valuable variety of the field, this review article also serves to demonstrate the personal pleasure which each of the contributors takes in the genre.
