Why is teen fiction so dystopian?

Author Scott Westerfeld has an idea.

The system is asking a lot from teenagers and not giving them much respect in return, so it’s no wonder that stories about that system exploding, breaking down under its own contradictions, or simply being overrun by zombies are also beloved of teenagers.

What is the apocalypse but an everlasting snow day? An excuse to tear up all those college applications, which suddenly aren’t going to determine the rest of your life?
