Elite 8 voting has ended and we have our FINAL FOUR!
A couple of upsets and one complete blowout mark this round of the tournament.
Hunger Games, the number 1 seed, crushed it's competitor this round (Matched, the number 9 seed).
Red Pyramid (20) continues it's run through the tournament by upsetting another competitor, the 5th seed, Beautiful Creatures.
Lost Hero (2) beat another one of my favorites, and the last non-fiction book in the tournament, Iron Heart (7). It was a good run for non-fiction this year. I really thought Iron Heart had the stamina to go all the way.
In the final match-up, Maze Runner (3) was stunned in a buzzer-beater by Wimpy Kid #7 (11). I was quite honestly shocked by this result, though I do love both books equally so would have been happy with either book moving forward.
Now we are on to the Final Four voting:
Hunger Games (1) vs. Red Pyramid (20): Can this underdog continue it's run through the bracket and upset the undeniable favorite?
Lost Hero (2) vs. Wimpy Kid #7 (11): I actually have no idea how this "game" will end up.
Will it be #1 vs. #2 in the finals? Cannot wait to find out. To vote online, click here or grab a bracket from the library. Ballots are due no later than end of school on Friday, 4/5. Winners will be announced here and our Facebook page over spring break! Stay tuned...
