Poll: YA love interests who leave you wishing you were 17 again Over the last two weeks, those who entered our Nightshade giveaway* told us which love interest from a young adult novel tops their list.

Everyone hated and then fell back in love with the “Hot Boy with a Sword” Prince Ash in The Iron Daughter. (We also named it one of the Best Books of 2010.) Now, with The...
