Here's how this feature works: each week I'll post a categorical superlative (e.g. "most sadistic villain" "crankiest father figure" "protagonist you would most like to slap some sense into" etc.) and list a few choices of characters from YA books in a poll. You get to pick! The poll will run for a week, and then in the following post I'll update with the name of the winning character.
Last time the poll was for the Most Adventurous Heroine, and in the end the title was captured quite securely by...
... Tris from Divergent!
Second-place went to Alanna from Song of the Lioness and third to Rose from Vampire Academy. I'm a little surprised that so many of the other options received so few votes — I guess they're all going to have to step up their game if they hope to rival Tris!
And now for another poll: who's the Broodiest Hero in YA?
