Last week, we wanted to know which version of the afterlife you would want to experience, as depicted in YA lit. Lots of readers must like the idea of aging backwards, because the clear preference was the afterlife described in Elsewhere by Gabrielle Zevin, with 70% of the vote. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted and commented!
This week, we’re asking you to choose the first lines of a book that make you want to keep reading. We’ve picked out some compelling choices for you, so vote in the poll below, and please comment if we’ve missed your favorite first lines.
