Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week we asked which summer job from a YA book you’d most want to have. Your top pick was being a library page at the New York Circulating Materials Repository (from The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman), which got 34% of the vote. Second place went to working at the library (like in The Truth about Forever by Sarah Dessen with 25%, and third went to being a Colonial-era re-enactor (as in Past Perfect by Leila Sales with 23% of the vote. (Can you sense the pattern here?) You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

Not all summer jobs are fun, though, which leads us to this week’s question: which summer job from a YA book would you least want to have? Vote in the poll below or leave a comment if we’ve forgotten something utterly unbearable!
