The Monday Poll: YA Lit Meant for Broadway
Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week, we asked to you weigh in on your favorite last line from YA literature. The majority of you- 35%, in fact- voted for short, sweet, and ambiguous: “Just three words long,” from Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell. (Whatever those three words are… swoon!) The last line of John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars (“I do, Augustus. I do.”) came in second with 21% of the vote, followed by the concluding sentence of Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews (“Honestly, I don’t know what the hell I’m talking about.”), with 15%. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!
Now, get your jazz hands ready– this week, we want to know which YA book would make a perfect Broadway musical. There are so many great YA books that involve the performing arts in some way– wouldn’t it be fun to see them come to life on stage, with big splashy dance numbers and fancy lighting cues? Vote in the poll below, or leave your suggestions in the comments!
