Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we asked you to tell us which  secondary character in YA lit deserves a book of their own. Reagan from Fangirl by Rainbow Rowell was your top pick by far, with 45% of the vote. Who can resist a character who’s described as wearing eyeliner “like a hardass Kate Middleton,” after all? The lovable, foul-mouthed Hassan from John Green’s An Abundance of Katherines was your second pick, with 24% of the vote. Write-ins included Lila from Holly Black’s Curse Workers series, Brimstone from Laini Taylor’s Smoke and Bone series, and Melina Marchetta’s character, Jimmy Hailler. 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 buzzing about the news that Rainbow Rowell’s Printz Honor winning title Eleanor & Park has been picked up by Dreamworks for the big screen treatment. Although most YA book-to-movie adaptations in recent years have been in the paranormal or science fiction genres, with the upcoming release of The Fault in Our Stars movie in June, we might just be about to hit a big wave of realistic YA fiction in the movie theaters! So besides the two titles we’ve mentioned here, what other realistic YA fiction would you like to see adapted as a film? Vote in the poll below or add your suggestion in the comments.
