In an unsurprising turn of events, Harry Potter has been declared the best young adult series of all time by Entertainment Weekly, after earning two thirds of the final vote against the runner-up, John Green’s The Fault in Our Stars. The poll result was decided through bracket rounds, with 64 popular young adult titles in the running. The poll included classic and contemporary novels, from Louisa May Alcott’s Little Women (1868) to Elizabeth Wein’s Code Name Verity (2012).
Other runners up included The Hunger Games, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Divergent, The Maze Runner, Ender’s Game, The Princess Bride, The Outsiders, To Kill a Mockingbird and The Hobbit. For more on the poll visit Entertainment Weekly’s website.
