Is Ender's Game really YA? Books of that genre are supposed to be easy to tackle,and Card's novel proposes some complex ideas.

Personally I'd be goddamn if I write something specifically for an age demographic. Then again nowadays there are sci-fi books targeted at people who likes to imagine dinosaur on human sex,so what the Hell do I know...
