John Green and the WWE Divas

We’re delighted that John Green’s Paper Towns was voted the #1 title on the 2009 YALSA Teens Top Ten. We were dying to see how John reacted to the WWE Divas’ announcement, but the link on the YALSA Web site just didn’t work, no matter how many times we clicked it (we did see some rather alarming SmackDown videos and Snoop Dogg kicking it; hard to take first thing in the morning).

So, we tried that trusty standby, YouTube and, voilà, there it is.

It appears the Divas have John locked, alone, in a hotel room. Hope he gets out soon.

Below is the full list of winners:

  1. Paper Towns by John Green (Penguin/Dutton)
  2. Breaking Dawn by Stephenie Meyer (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers)
  3. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (Scholastic)
