Good morning, Hub readers!
Last week, we asked you to choose your favorite football-themed YA title, and your top pick was Crossing Lines by Paul Volponi, with 35% of the vote, and Dairy Queen by Catherine Murdock was a close second with 32%. 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 parents in YA lit you think deserve their own book. After all, mother knows best. Who would you want to read about? Vote in the poll below, or add your choice in the comments!

Ruby Oliver’s parents from the Ruby Oliver series by E. Lockhart, hands down.
Lockwood’s parents from Lockwood and co. series by Jonathan Stroud.
I would actually like a prequel to Harry Potter where we see his parents when they were young, at school, etc. Kind of like the flashbacks we got in the books, but as an entire series. We could also have a series with Harry and Ron’s kids. I basically want more Harry Potter!
Ken Dietz from Please Ignore Vera Dietz
The Lancasters and the Waters from TFIOS. Also the mom from “Everybody Sees the Ants”.
My favorite YA parents are Mia’s parents, Kat and Denny, in If I Stay. Compassionate and loving, they are written as fully-formed characters. I would beg them to adopt me if they were real!
