So my rule of thumb is that if a book's protagonist is described as being aged 16 or 17, I normally ignore it, even if it's written by a favorite author who's now trying to skim some of that YA cash.
To me, it depends on the YA book. Some do not feel like YA books. Age doesn't matter. The story matters.
