Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week we asked which sci-fi or fantasy location you’d want to visit and who your tour guide would be. The clear victor was touring Narnia with Mr. Tumnus, which got 46% of your votes. Seeing Thisby with Sean and New Beijing with Cinder came in second and third, respectively. 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’re turning back to reality — the sometimes too-real kind. We want to know which natural disaster in YA lit you think is the most terrifying. Were you stunned by the power of wind, water, fire, drought, or something else? Vote in our poll below and leave us a comment telling us why you found that particular scenario so frightening. Don’t see the natural disaster from YA lit that you thought was scariest? Tell us what it is in the comments!
