When it comes to the book world, no segment is as powerful as the Young Adult book community. They get blockbuster movies, channels full of TV adaptations, more merchandise than you can imagine, and one of the strongest online fandoms around.

But the question is: which is the best YA series?

While there’s no way to know for sure, MashReads wants to try and find out. That’s why we created the One True YA bracket, a two-week competition where the readers will vote on beloved and bestselling series going head-to-head. Who will win? Will it be a dystopian thriller? A supernatural romance? Something new or an older YA classic? That’s for you to decide.

Every other day from May 25 to May 31 we’ll post a new round of match-ups on our Twitter account. The winning series will be crowned on June 2. Vote for your favorites, and tweet your support using #OneTrueYA.

May the odds be ever in your favor.
