Everyone knows the dystopian genre saturates the YA market. I'm a teen and I see it all the time. I love dystopian books. The only problem is, I'm afraid literary agents will see it as overdone. When I set out to write my novel If They Take Me, I didn't say "I'm going to write a dystopian book." I just asked myself 'What If' like everyone does and created an entirely new world.
My question is: should I say my novel is dystopian in my query letter? Maybe there is another genre that my novel fits into, but the truth is I believe it is dystopian. What should I do?
