Young Adult Fiction
YOUNG ADULT FICTION or YOUNG ADULT LITERATURE (YA) is fiction published for readers in their youth . The age range for young adult fiction is subjective. Some sources claim it ranges from ages 12–18, while authors and readers of "young teen novels" often define it as written for those aged 15 to the early 20s. The terms YOUNG ADULT NOVEL, JUVENILE NOVEL, TEENAGE FICTION, YOUNG ADULT BOOK, etc., refer to the works in this category. The subject matter and story lines of young adult literature are typically consistent with the age and experience of the main character, but this literature spans the spectrum of fiction genres . Stories that focus on the specific challenges of youth are sometimes referred to as problem novels or coming-of-age novels

Paperback
A PAPERBACK is a type of book characterized by a thick paper or paperboard cover, and often held together with glue rather than stitches or staples . In contrast, hardcover or hardback books are bound with cardboard covered with cloth. The pages on the inside are made of paper. Inexpensive books bound in paper have existed since at least the 19th century in such forms as pamphlets , yellowbacks , dime novels , and airport novels . Modern paperbacks can be differentiated by size. In the U.S., there are "mass-market paperbacks " and larger, more durable "trade paperbacks ." In the U.K., there are A-format, B-format , and the largest C-format sizes. Paperback editions of books are issued when a publisher decides to release a book in a low-cost format. Cheaper, lower quality paper; glued (rather than stapled or sewn) bindings; and the lack of a hard cover may contribute to the lower cost of paperbacks

International Standard Book Number
The INTERNATIONAL STANDARD BOOK NUMBER (ISBN) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit STANDARD BOOK NUMBERING (SBN) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero)
