You know… like normal people have.
In the final battle, Hush, Hush fans came out in force to elect Nora Grey the reigning champion in our YA March Madness Competition!
Congratulations to Becca Fitzpatrick for creating such a wonderful heroine and thanks to everyone who voted!
We wish we could have included more fine ladies in our contest… who would you have liked to see compete?
In what COULD be seen as an upset (but what WE see as an amazing testament to the passion of cool readers) Anna Oliphant (Anna and the French Kiss) and Nora Grey (Hush, Hush) have beaten out Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) and Hermione Granger (Harry Potter) to go on to the final round of YA March Madness!
Thanks to some great support of fans from Twitter, our polls were flooded for support for the supposed underdogs. Here’s how it shook out:
Katniss Everdeen (The Hunger Games) 38%
Anna Oliphant (Anna and the French Kiss) 62%
Nora Grey (Hush, Hush) 60%
Hermione (Harry Potter) 40%
But now it’s down to the final two and if the fans come out in force again for this one it could be a tight race…
So who will be the reigning queen of YA heroines?
