Alvina Ling, Senior Editor, Little, Brown Books for Young Readers
Alvina's main love is literary fiction.
But what is it?
(A general definition from Alivina) Literary fiction focuses on the character, where commercial fiction generally focuses on the plot.
In the adult world, literary fiction is a genre, but not in the children's book world.
A great example of literary fiction is FIREGIRL by Tony Abbott.
Literary fiction doesn't have anything to do with how well a book is written.
