Abstract

Coming of age stories have always been treated in its essential curiosity and requisite recklessness in literature. The ineludible impact of science and technology gradually necessitated a shift from age old norms of thoroughly Utopian Childrens Literature to a protruding new trend, especially in Young Adult Fiction of  21st century, namely, an indispensably Dystopian divergenceMost of the prominent Dystopian Young Adult Books seem to question dubious and unreasonable adult norms from an adolescent perspective which can be justified predominantly as an instigation of Carnivalesque possibilities of those books as a work of art. The paper attempts to dissociate such factors that frame Carnival and seeks to delineate the extent to which they impact and interrogate Aetonormativity in Select Dystopian Young Adult Fiction.
