Good morning, Hub readers!

Last week, asked which YA lit character you’d want to follow into adulthood and read about how their life turns out. Your top pick was Cath from Rainbow Rowell’s Fangirl, capturing 46% of the vote– and dare we suggest that if Rowell doesn’t take readers all the way through Cath’s life… well, there’s always fanfiction? Ha! 32% of you would want to follow the life Junior from The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, and 13% would want to see how Doug’s life turns out after the last page of Okay for Now by Gary D. Schmidt. 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 revisiting a previous poll topic with a whole new set of options: we want your opinion on the coolest pet in YA lit. Which  one would you want to take home for your very own? Vote in the poll below, or add your suggestions in the comments.

  1. You seem to have forgotten about Angus – from Louise Rennison’s Georgia Nicholson books. Best EVER.

  2. I also immediately thought Hedwig, then Norbert, then Buckbeak, then Crookshanks, then Fang (do you see a pattern?), but definitely Hedwig!!!

  3. Thanks for the suggestions, all! Hedwig is one of my favorites too– she was an option in the previous poll on this topic, and we wanted to make this poll completely updated. Manchee, too.

    Angus, though…! This is why we open these polls to write-in suggestions. Thank you! :)

  4. Gert’s telepathic dinosaur from Marvel’s “Runaways” series. By far.
