That's because it doesn't exist Deborah.  Teenagers who want to read sf go
to the adult shelves. If a book is marketed to the YA market, it's going to
end up on shelves that teenage sf fans have learned not to bother with.

But all the publicity for the book talked about it as for teenagers, and it
is part of Tor's YA imprint.
