I didn't start out to write a "clean" book; it's just that this story did not lend itself to drugs, sex, violence, bad language (or vampires.)
Ironically, I intended to write a YA book, but couldn't interest anyone in it because it's "clean." Even though the protagonist is 16, agents and children's book authors repeatedly said this should be marketed as an adult historical novel.
