Kicking the tires on a new opinion:

World-class YA/PG stories shine a little brighter than other genres because you don’t have access to many of the bells and whistles that a mediocre writer can distract adults with. You have to be really good at the fundamentals because they have to carry more weight. Sort of like how chefs judge each other based on fried eggs.

As a corollary, bad PG is even worse.

I’m not a particularly big fan, fwiw
