Cross-genre weirdness: New Audrey Niffenegger book

Classification question, public library oriented. Possibly only people who were able to pick up a copy at ALA will have an opinion on it, as the listed release date isn't until September 10.

WHERE are y'all PUTTING this thing? I am at a loss. I've handed it off to my supervisor to read and offer comment on, but I think he'll be just as divided as I am.

One thing I'm sure of is that I want it to circ. I want it to be seen. It's amazing. It's gorgeous. It made me cry.

In my library, we do not have a special section for graphic novels; anything graphic goes where it would go if it were text. So theoretically general adult fiction, but I'm not sure anyone would pick it up there. YA? Is it a YA book, really? I'm uncertain. It might see more circ in hardcover fantasy than anywhere else, but then again, it might just be lost there. I just DON'T KNOW. *flails*
