Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we wanted to know which YA title you thought was most interesting from a list we put together. Your favorite, with 42% of the vote, was Ten Things We Did (And Probably Shouldn’t Have) by Sarah Mlynowski. Coming in second with 27% of the vote was Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews; third and fourth were The Complete History of Why I Hate Her by Jennifer Richard Jacobson (15%) and Zombies vs Unicorns edited by Justine Larbalestier and Holly Black (14%). The Disreputable History of Frankie Landau-Banks by E. Lockhart and The Earth, My Butt, and Other Big Round Things by Carolyn Mackler also got shout-outs in the comments. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

We’ve previously identified two trends in YA lit: adult authors writing for YA, and YA books and series being adapted for television and film. Tonight, these two trends meet in the series premiere of The Carrie Diaries, the television adaptation of the series of the same name, which serves as something of a prequel to Sex and the City. So with that on our minds, we’re thinking about “the City,” and we want to know which YA book or series set in New York City is your favorite. Vote in the poll below, and leave us a comment if we’ve omitted your favorite NYC-based adventure!

Which YA book/series set in NYC is your favorite?

    What about Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick by Joe Schreiber?

    • January 14, 2013

      Oh, that’s a really good one! Should have included it for sure.

      I love this book. I tell every poor soul that crosses my path. I’m so pleased there is a second!

    How about Where She Went by Gayle Forman? I love that book.

    Karla’s right: Where She Went should be on that list!

    I second Au Revoir. But I voted for So Yesterday because that book, for my money, has the best ever use of a librarian!

    Great poll! I loved the first episode of the Carrie Diaries.
