Surprise! Instead of making you wait until Sunday to find out which books made it to the Championship of YA Adaptation Madness, we’re letting you know today—and voting for the champion will start later this afternoon!

The two Final Four matches came down to a 51% to 49% split and a 60% to 40% split. One SUPER close and the other … still decently close. Which tells me that y’all had a hard time deciding between these four books. And let me tell you—so did we! (If someone in The Biz just wants to give us adaptations of all 32 books in our matchups, we’d be all for it.) That said, there does have to be an ultimate winner. And we’re one step closer to it now.

Check out the winners and the updated bracket below. And don’t forget to vote for the champion in our Instagram stories later today!

Sarah Dessen’s The Truth About Forever (51%) vs. Laini Taylor’s Daughter of Smoke and Bone (49%)
