The Orange Houses Genre

By Paul Griffin

Genre

Young Adult Literature

It's no coincidence that Fatima, Mik, and Jimmi are all teenagers during our story. Jimmi is the oldest of the bunch at eighteen, but Fatima and Mik are only sixteen and fifteen, respectively. The characters' youth allows them to take risks and act impulsively, but it's not all fun and games for our main crew—in fact, the gang has to deal with everything from drugs to immigration laws to bombs.

It's this coming to terms with the darker issues the world has to offer, though, that allows these three to grow up and learn a lot about themselves. Even though this book deals with darker themes than some other young adult lit novels, it's certainly directly toward audiences in their teens, just like our characters.
