We are down to the Final Four. 64 YA and Teen Novels have battled it out and now there are only 4 left standing. John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars takes on The Hate U Give, by Angie Thomas. Meanwhile, the Canadian classic, Anne of Green Gables, by Lucy Maud Montgomery, takes on JK Rowling’s Harry Potter.
The Elite Eight promised some compelling and hard fought contests, although several matchups weren’t as close as anticipated. Harry Potter was dominant in a win over The Hunger Games, as was The Hate U Give as it rolled over Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe. The victory was a bit harder to come by for Anne of Green Gables as it defeated The Book Thief. Meanwhile, the one nail biter of the round saw The Fault in Our Stars eke out a last second win over The Perks of Being a Wallflower.
Semi-Final voting runs April 5th and 6th, closing afterschool Wednesday. Voting in the Championship Final will run April 7th and 8th.
