Interesting essay by Edan Lepucki this week on The Millions about first vs. third person narration in young adult novels. Cites a point made by Cecil Castellucci that a novel with a young narrator is young adult "when it has a young protagonist and the action is happening right now or has just happened. If a book has a young protagonist, but it is nostalgic or self-aware, then it is an adult book." In Trampoline, I think Dawn is a little older when she is narrating than when the events happened. Far enough away from the events to want to make sense of them, but not as old as she is when one is reading them. The events of Trampoline took place in 1998. I think Dawn narrated the book in the early 2000s.
