Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, we posed the question of which YA-lit-based summer movie is going to make you cry harder: If I Stay or The Fault in Our Stars. It’s generally agreed that they’re both going to pull at our heartstrings, but The Fault in Our Stars came out ahead with 79% 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 which YA lit character you’d want to follow into adulthood and read about how their life turns out. In the early 20th century, L.M. Montgomery took her iconic character Anne Shirley from girlhood to being a wife and mother. A few years ago, Ann Brashares provided a glimpse into the lives of the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants characters as adults, and last fall, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor wrapped up the story of Alice, filling readers in on her life through age 60. Which other character from YA lit would you like to read about as an emerging (or fully-emerged) adult? Vote in the poll below, or add your suggestions in the comments.

One thought on “The Monday Poll: YA Lit Characters as Adults”

  1. This was a tough choice! For once, I’ve actually read a majority of the books listed and almost all of them I would love to see follow-up books or short stories about their adult life.
