The Monday Poll: Classics to YA
Last week we asked which YA book-to-movie adaptation you thought was the worst, and the results are in: with 32% of the vote, Eragon walks away with this dubious honor. The Lightning Thief also captured 30% of the vote, and Twilight came in third with 17%. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
One of our posts last Friday was about how well For Darkness Shows the Stars translated Persuasion into a new setting — and that got us thinking: which classic story would you like to see get a YA makeover? It could stay set in the past; it could be a modern update; it could venture off into a new genre while maintaining the basic plot or themes of the original. Vote in the poll below, or leave a comment if there’s another classic you’d like to see get a YA treatment!
