The Only Showdown You'll Ever Want to Witness

Because, come on: how many of us really want to turn on the WWF channel and watch burly, oil-slicked men go at it with one another? I'd be much more interested in seeing Katniss and Katsa, with their different skills, battle one another, and speculate what might happen.

Well, wonder no longer. Because something is going down... something big.

How would you like to see Edward duke it out against Hermione? Or Katniss and Katsa? Well, guess what? You can, in the first ever

YA Fantasy Showdown!

In celebration of Suzanne Collin’s final book in the Hunger Games trilogy, a group of bloggers are pitting some of the best-known characters in YA in the ultimate showdown. And YOU get to pick the winner.

That’s right. You read the battles (written up by said bloggers), evaluate the characters, and vote for who has the honor of moving on to the next round. It’s a tournament like you’ve never seen before (because there’s more). The authors have been asked to participate and advocate their character in writing their own version of the battle. It’s going to be truly epic. Or at least a good way to pass the time until Mockingjay comes out. And it all goes down August 10th.

Don't miss it... or regret it for as long as you continue to read YA lit.

By the way, check out this matchup list. Totally heart-racing, right? Twenty says Katsa owns Edward in the first round. :P
