The Winner of the 2017 Undead Poll is….
This year we watched the Undead Poll with fascination. While every contender was poking his or her head up from the ground, every one had clear love out there, two almost immediately shot into the lead: Ghost and The Girl Who Drank the Moon. And they stayed pretty much neck and neck until the polls closed. Now you’d think the track star would be the winner, wouldn’t you? But in the end it was the Newbery winner that inched ahead, winning with eight votes. So, lo and behold, there is still a chance for the Newbery curse to be broken!
THE GIRL WHO DRANK THE MOON
for coming back from the Dead
to make it into the final contest!
