The Monday Poll: Banned Books Week edition
Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week, we asked which city you’d want to tour and which YA character would be your guide. It was a very close race between Prague with Karou (from Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor) and Paris with Etienne St. Claire (from Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins, but Prague with Karou won by just one vote!
