The Monday Poll: Most Creative Title
Last week we asked who you thought was the worst parent in YA lit. With 36% of the vote, Leck from Graceling, Fire, and Bitterblue by Kristin Cashore won (lost?). Jazz’s father in I Hunt Killers by Barry Lyga was second with 21% of the vote, and Mrs. Coulter in His Dark Materials by Philip Pullman was in third with 16% of the vote. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
Titles — like covers — matter. We’ve asked previously about your favorite impossibly long title and about which book title you’d change, but which title of a YA novel do you think is most creative? Vote in the poll below, or leave a comment if we’ve left out something truly ingenious.
