Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week, we asked you who the best girlfriend in YA lit is. Coming in on top with 55% of your votes was Noelle from Ned Vizzini’s It’s Kind of a Funny Story. Thanks to all of you who voted. You can view the results of any of our past polls in the Polls Archive.
There’s just one week left until the Youth Media Awards announcement at the American Library Association’s Midwinter conference, which means there’s just one week left until we find out which books, authors, and illustrators have won eighteen awards like the Newbery, Caldecott, and Printz. You can watch a live webcast (there are 10,000 virtual seats which go on a first-come-first-served basis) or visit The Hub for live coverage of our own.
We here at The Hub are really looking forward to the YMAs, so for this week’s Monday Poll, we want to know which YALSA award you’re most excited about seeing or hearing results for. Vote in the poll below and discuss in the comments!
Which YALSA award are you most excited to find out the winner for?
- The Michael L. Printz Award (best book written for teens) (65%, 81 Votes)
