Choose the Undead

The Undead Poll for the 2013 SLJ Battle of the Books is open! What does this mean to you? It means that you can now vote for the book you would like to see most in the final round, in case by some misguided judging strange twist of fate it should be defeated in an earlier round and not be able to go on. Let us say  you are a fan and you really want to see a certain book win. Like this one:
 What do you do? First go to this page of the SLJ site. Second, click where it says "enter voting vault here". It will take you to a survey site with a list of all 16 books with little circles next to them like bubbles on a multiple choice test. Third, click on the circle next to Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein. Be sure you don't click on any of the other circles. That would mean you were voting for the wrong book. Finally, click on the submit button on the bottom of the page and it will take you to another page assuring you your vote has been counted. You must trust this assurance and believe the BoB people aren't just playing us.

Of course the above is just a highly suggestive example. If you wish to champion a book other than Code Name Verity you would be wrong fully within your rights to do so. But only if the book you choose is Bomb!, Jepp Who Defied the Stars, Liar & Spy, or Seraphina. Otherwise you are too busy to bother with this. Really.
