Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week was Teen Tech Week, so we asked which virtual world from a YA book you’d most want to live in. Coming in on top with 56% of the vote was OASIS from Ready Player One by Ernest Cline; The Realms from Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi and the Heir Apparent virtual world from Heir Apparent by Vivan Vande Velde also made showings with 15% of the vote each. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

A couple of months ago, we asked who the worst parent in YA lit was; this week, we want to know who the best parent in YA lit is. Vote in the poll below, or leave a comment if there’s another parent you think tops all the rest!

Who's the best parent in YA lit?

  • Mrs. Weasley (Harry Potter series by J.K. Rowling) (65%, 90 Votes)
  • will grayson's mom (Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan) (9%, 13 Votes)
  • Ken Dietz (Please Ignore Vera Dietz by A.S. King) (9%, 12 Votes)
  • Mrs. Garrett (My Life Next Door by Huntley Fitzpatrick) (5%, 7 Votes)

    That’s a tough one. Although I absolutely adore Mrs. Weasley and all of her hand knit sweaters, I love Ken Dietz’s flowcharts. And although she’s not there, I think Hazel’s mom from The Fault in Our Stars was a pretty cool mom (especially when you find out that she kind of had a secret life going on).

    I vote for Quentin’s parents from Paper Towns by John Green. I can’t imagine more supportive and loving parents than those.
