The YA Superlatives Blogfest is hosted by Tracy Neithercott, Katy Upperman, Jessica Love, and Alison Miller. Like I really need an excuse to gush about all of the awesome YA I read this year but I appreciate it anyway. Day 1 featured the novels that rose to the Head of the Class. Today is all about who rules the school.
Like most jokesters, Ryan Dean West uses his sharp wit to hide how hurt he is inside. Truly the tears of a clown!
MOST LIKELY TO BE A ROCKSTAR
Park’s taste in music is flawless. I can totally picture him all grown up and making everybody swoon on Total Request Live.
MOST LIKELY TO START A RIOT
I’ve crushed on the name Xander since the days of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, so it didn’t take much for me to like Kasie West’s Xander. But his charm, confidence, and swoony flirt-speak doesn’t hurt either.
FASHION KING OR QUEEN
CHARACTER YOU’D MOST WANT FOR YOUR BFF
Sure, Anna has some issues but she’s tough on the outside and gooey-soft on the inside, sort of like me. Plus she would accept me without judgment and who wouldn’t want that in a best friend?
CHARACTER YOU WISH YOU’D DATED IN HIGH SCHOOL
Maggie Stiefvater has a knack for concocting boys that would have had me at at “Hey, girl” and Adam is no exception.
MOST LIKELY TO BECOME PRESIDENT
I think Cath would win in a landslide, especially if she mobilized her Simon Snow fandom.
Mack is straight up odd. He’s burly and scruffy, rarely talks, barely acknowledges the outside world, and eerily observant. From his first appearance, I was intrigued.
VILLAIN YOU LOVE TO HATE
I wanted to hate the doctor. I really, really did. But I ended up empathizing despite my best intentions. And while I don’t condone what the doctor did, I definitely understand.
FAVORITE PARENTAL FIGURE
At first, I gave Roy the side-eye for being creepy but he ultimately plays a key role in helping the main character process her grief and learn to accept the twists and turns that life brings.
This is a tie between Maddie and Logan, both of whom embody all that is nerdtastic in their own unique ways.
