I am sooo with you on the Escape From Furnice series! I've been hodilng on pretty good - I've only read the first chapter of book 3 so far, even though I've wanted to read way, way more. This is actually the first time since I've moved away from the UK, that I wished I was still there. Even though I don't like the UK covers as much, I'm really contemplating asking my friend in England to track book 4 and 5 down for me. :)As for the results, I'm not surprised by any of them. Another amazing YA Dystopian book is Veronica Roth's "Divergent". I absolutely loved it and cannot wait for the second book to come out!!!
