Thanks for all of the comments guys! You’ve given me a lot to mull over!
I think I have to agree with @shakespeare “It’s the story that counts most, that it is told in the best possible way”. That’s really what I’m trying to focus on.
I also agree with @nefaerious. I feel like my story could be written for YA or Adult. But I always thought it was the voice that distinguished the two, not necessarily the word count. I feel like there is a very different voice for teens than for adults.
