The Monday Poll: The Worst Best Friend in YA Lit

photo by Chiltepinster

Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we asked you which realistic YA book should be made into a movie. Anna and the French Kiss by Stephanie Perkins dominated with 39% of the vote, and Hate List by Jennifer Brown came in second with 14%. The First Part Last by Angela Johnson followed closely with 13% 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, we want to know who you think is the worst best friend EVER in YA lit. These bullies, backstabbers, and betrayers might be characters you love to hate– they’re so well-written, they seem to jump off the page (and you can only hope they don’t show up in your life). Vote for the worst best friend in the poll below or add your suggestion in the comments.

  1. Holly in Fiona Wood’s Wildlife (out in September) is quite possibly THE WORST. She’s Iago in a skirt.

    1. I KNOW RIGHT! The book was pretty good but it was just reuined because of my great dislike towards holly. Plus sib never actaually did anything to either Ben or holly in revenge which also annoyed me a lot. It felt unfinished like they got away with it all without any punishment
