Gearin' Up to Get an Agent Blogfest Week 1

It's Week 1 of Gearin' Up to Get an Agent Blogfest, hosted by Deana Barnhart.

My question is this:

What do you think constitutes a "boy" book? Why do we have to have designations like "boy" or "girl" books anyway? Okay, yeah, that's two questions. Take your pick, although I suspect the answer to the second question has a lot to do with marketing. To which I say 'urgh.'

It can't really just be a matter of what gender the MC is, can it? Surely it must go deeper than that. I certainly think it does! But I'd love to hear your thoughts.

Here, have a boy fairy:
