Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week, in honor of Veteran’s Day, we asked for your favorite YA book depicting the the veteran experience. The top pick, with 44% of the vote, was Laurie Halse Anderson’s most recent release, The Impossible Knife of Memory. It was followed by Gary D. Schmidt’s Okay For Now, with 23% 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!
This week, on a totally different note, we want to know which version of a post-apocalyptic world in YA lit you think is the most believable. Do you think society will crumble and stay that way? Will it be rebuilt as a dystopia with an evil leader? Will people be able to breathe the air outside after the big event happens? Will there be zombies? Vote in the poll below, or add your choice in the comments if we missed it.

- Life as we Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer (42%, 39 Votes)
