A free sci-fi with a fascinating set of reviews! Can an adult sci-fi title have a young MC?

Transmission, by Morgan Rice

At long last, SETI picks up a verified alien transmission. They’re coming. For real. And the only clue to deciphering their message lies in the unique brain of a dying 13-year-old boy…

We always scan reviews and read a bit before we recommend anything, and the reviews on this one are fascinating. We love the premise, but some people seem upset that the protagonist is 13. They think the book should be listed as YA for that reason alone. What do you think? Does a young protagonist automatically make a book into a YA read? Or is it possible for an adult title to have an adolescent MC? Have you ever read a YA book that should have been in the adult section? Or an adult book that should have been listed as YA?

From the publisher:

“TRANSMISSION is riveting, unexpected, and firmly rooted in strong psychological profiles backed with thriller and sci-fi elements: what more could readers wish for? (Just the quick publication of Book Two, Arrival.)”
