Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week, we asked you to weigh in on the most unusual source of magical or supernatural powers in YA lit. The top result, with 49% of the vote, was “choking on your dinner” from Maureen Johnson’s The Name of the Star. Unusual indeed! Second runner up, with 29% of the vote, was “gemstone in your navel” as depicted in Girl of Fire and Thorns by Rae Carson. 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 continuing the fantasy theme, but turning our attention to setting. Summer is almost here, and surely your mind must be wandering to vacation plans. Ponder this: what if your travel dreams weren’t constrained to the real world? What if you could visit the setting of your favorite fantasy book? Dangerous, dark, or beautiful– which entirely fictional place from YA lit would be your vacation spot of choice? Cast your vote below, or add your suggestions in the comments!
