What does “Clean” Young Adult Mean?

Here at Blink Young Adult Books, we publish clean young adult fiction and nonfiction. Every so often we have a reader as us what “clean” means. It certainly isn’t meant to be the opposite of “dirty,” and it also isn’t meant to imply that the content doesn’t tackle tough topics.

Clean YA comes in all shapes and sizes—fantasy, contemporary, historical, and even thrillers. It deals with real issues real people face, whether that’s overcoming a loss, facing a challenge, or finding where you fit in the world.

Protagonists in clean YA are not perfect—far from it! But they often are the types of diverse heroes and heroines who don’t give up. Their attitudes are meant to inspire readers to be stronger and more confident no matter the situation.
