albeit 3.2: Youth

We were all children once and, as the age of actual adult responsibility is delayed more with every generation, we maintain our youthfulness with a ferocity. The bildunsgroman is a popular novel for the classroom and the young adult (YA) genre is increasingly studied in academia. Yet, we received few submissions for this issue. As editors, we made the decision that what we did have was worthy of publication and reading and, thus, we have a sort of mini issue of albeit after the monster two-issue war exploration and our upcoming Black Lives Matter issue(s). Like children, sometimes the little topics need a little light shined on them. We hope you enjoy this issue.
