Young adult literature is one of the literary genre which implied teenage audience or adolescent. It is often confused with what can be exactly considered as children literature. Adolescence as a group of age, is placed in between childhood and adult people. Through an adolescent fiction, Lupus, this research sees gender as an effect and as a tool which could influence the adolescent’s identity. Based on theory of social practice, the things that are usually done by the teenagers in everyday life will be considered as a common sense although it is opposed to normative matters, such as a choice of their gender role. Adolescent readers in this case, are not fully aware of gender and identity, but they define those things related to the construction of sociocultural context.
