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.
I haven't had a U-Pick post since July — so it's time to remedy that! Last choice was for the Broodiest Hero in YA, and I think it comes as a surprise to no one that the title went to...
...Edward from Twilight!
Yep, he's looking broody all right. Guys who came close to beating out Edward were Will from the Internal Devices series, Varen from the Nevermore series, and Ash from the Iron Fey series.
This time around the poll is: which character in YA is most likely to end up in prison?
There are lots of choices here, so vote below! (If the book is part of a series, I've just listed the series name. You can decide which book you want to base your vote on.) There's also an option for a write-in vote if your pick isn't listed. If that's the case, please choose "other" and then leave the character's name and book title in the comments :)
EDIT: the Blogger poll did not seem to be working properly (the votes kept disappearing!) so I've created a new poll that will hopefully be better. So if you voted once already with the original Blogger poll, vote again in this new one so your vote can be counted!
