The Monday Poll: Summer Jobs
Last week we asked which YA book you’d most want to see adapted into a musical. Will Grayson, Will Grayson by John Green and David Levithan may have been the obvious choice, but that made it our winner with 45% of the vote. Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell came in second with 17% of the vote, and Revolution by Jennifer Donnelly and Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John tied for third with 12%. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
The summer solstice was a few days ago, which means it’s officially summer now! If the local schools aren’t already out for summer, they will be soon — and that got us thinking: which summer job from a YA book would you most want to have? Vote in the poll below, or leave a comment if we’ve omitted the way you’d most like to spend the next few months working.
