The winner will be featured in The Oracle

March madness is over, and I am not even 100% sure I understand March madness, but for no sake at all I thought it would be interesting to see what people think the “best” SVH book is. Obviously, best can mean most fun, best written, most snark-worthy, etc. So we’ll do a bracket type thing and the wionners out of these pairs will be pitted against each other next time.

    Great idea! My bet for the title is on Kidnapped by the cult.

    The soap opera one was the very last one i read while i was a teenager. The one where a soap opera just HAPPENS to need sun-kissed aryan twins for a week. It was pretty craptascular and was the true end of my reading YA fluff while still a YA myself. Have you ever done a recap on it?

    I find it amusing/exciting/embarrassing(?) that I had no trouble recollecting these books simply by their title alone. Great poll!

    You just cannot beat Slam Book Fever! Best one EVER! I always wanted a Slam Book, mostly because I was supremely confident I would get voted in all the best catagories that you had to pretend you were offended about but were actually pretty pleased and secretly proud. Like ‘Biggest Flirt.’ Don’t know why Jessica was bitching about it. You can PRETEND to be offended, but it’s much better then most likely to get married first or some shit.

    Oooh, this is exciting. This must be how the Booker Prize panel felt when deciding upon the “Booker of Bookers” a few years ago!

    It makes me sad that I have to choose between Soap Star and The Evil Twin. Those were always two of my favourite crazy books. Also, I am going to vote against pretty much every Super Edition because those were way more boring than the regular series books or the Thriller/Mystery specials.

    I already can’t wait to vote in the next round! Although I can’t believe I had to choose between Perfect Summer and Alone in the Crowd. Those are two I still reread to this day.

    This is a great idea! I think “On the Edge” will be one of the strongest competitors, that one is a total classic. I can’t wait to see the first set of winners!

    If Francine Pascal were British, Salman Rushdie would have had some competition. I’m not saying that “Midnight’s Children” wouldn’t have won over “Wrong Kind of Girl,” but the vote would have been close.

    I agree with Becca – Alone in the Crowd and Perfect Summer are totes the “best” SVHs! It’s like UNC vs. MSU in the first round!
