The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner has emerged victorious in the 2017 YASF Battle of the Books!
It wasn’t ever a sure thing. You can reread some past posts and follow the book’s triumphs over noble opponent Our Chemical Hearts by Krystal Sutherland, and on to best esteemed competition like Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys, The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon, and If I Was Your Girl by Meredith Russo.
Congratulations to Mr. Zentner and The Serpent King!
UPDATE: His response!
And thank you to all of you who voted and read along with us.
But most of all, an enormous round-of-Internet-applause for our reviewers.
