Is it inappropriate to have a 18-year-old boy ask out a 16-year-old boy in a young adult adult novel?

The 18 year old is in college. It takes place in America. It's science fiction. Personally, I have read things in young adult novels that many would considered In the adult category. So I do not see this as bad. I have not written it yet.

  • No. In some states I believe 16 is considered the age of consent and in some countries- Italy for instance-the age of consent is even younger. Readers may come from just about anywhere.

    But that's in regards to sexual situations. Where asking someone out is concerned, not at all. High school senior guys often date sophomore girls. Seniors are usually about 18 years old sophomores are usually about 16 years old give or take a year.

  • Yes.
