Biographies are told in the third person and involve a lot of research.
Biographies of historical, cultural, and scientific figures past and present can be very literary, whereas biographies of current hipsters and celebrities (both movie/TV stars and sports heroes) tend to read like Teen People magazine — and both have their readership. Biographies are generally written as picture books, middle-grade books, and YA.
