Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week, we wanted to know which fictional game you’d most want to play. Unsurprisingly, games from the Harry Potter universe dominated: 40% of you chose Wizard Chess and an additional 25% chose Exploding Snap. Epic (from Conor Kostick’s book of the same name) came in third. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
This week, we want to know who you think is the coolest cyborg, robot, or automaton in YA lit. (And boy, was this list tricky! Is Tally a cyborg in Specials? Is everyone in Feed? Should we include characters for whom their machine identity is a spoiler?) Vote in the poll below, or leave a comment if we’ve left out someone important.
