The Monday Poll: Basketball in YA Lit

monday_pollGood morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we explored alarming first lines in YA lit that grab our attention and compel us to keep reading. The votes were pretty well divided among the various options, but Kami Garcia’s Unbreakable took top honors with 21%. The line? “As my bare feet sank into the wet earth, I tried not to think about the dead bodies buried beneath me.” Shudder! We got some great alternative suggestions in the comments, so check out the post. You can see detailed results for all of our previous polls in the Polls Archive. Thanks to all of you who voted!

This week, we’re kind of right in the middle of March Madness, right? I am clueless about basketball, but umm, how are your brackets going? (See, I totally sound like I know what I’m talking about right there.) So anyway, let’s have a basketball themed poll for the sports fans out there! Choose from the options below for your favorite basketball title in YA lit, or suggest another book in the comments!
