Length of YA novel


I have read that publishing houses look for YA books from 90k-120k. Is that true? Most of my work ends up 60k-80k.

The 90-120k range seems really high to me- where did you get that figure from? I don't write YA, but I've been advised not to write more than 110k for my stuff. 60k is probably pushing it on the low end though.

The 90k-120k I got from an agent's site.
