Your Finalists!

And Genre Champions!

Fantasy

The Hobbit put up a tough fight every round prior, but in the end it really couldn’t handle the pressure from The Golden Compass. Compass will continue on to the semi finals, and is the winner of the Fantasy bracket for this poll.

Science Fiction

In perhaps the least surprising outcome of the round, Ender’s Shadow is the Science Fiction bracket winner over its worthy opponent A Wrinkle in Time.

Realistic Fiction

By the narrowest of margins, Speak beats Eleanor & Park for the Realistic Fiction crown and the spot in the semi-finals.

Historical/Non-Fiction

Also by an extremely narrow margin, Treasure Island is the winner of the Historical bracket over Marjane Satrapi’s Persepolis.

Now, what would happen, if I arranged the semi-finals the same way as the rest of the event, is that The Golden Compass and Ender’s Game would face each other in the semi-final (likewise Speak and Treasure Island). I have, however, been pleaded with to change things up a bit, so I’m going to be feeding them all into a randomizer to decide the final pairings. Come back tomorrow to see who faces who in the YA Championship Semi-Finals round!
