The Internet Does Not Agree with 2014’s Choice Teen Book of the Year: Allegiant
The winners of the Children's and Teen Choice Book Awards were announced this week and, unsurprisingly, favorites like Cassandra Clare's The Clockwork Princess, Rick Riordan's The House of Hades and Rick Yancey's The 5th Wave all made the list of finalists. What came as a major shock to some, though, was Veronica Roth's win in one particular category: Book of the Year, teens.
Though she lost out to Rush Limbaugh (Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims: Time-Travel Adventures with Exceptional Americans) as Author of the Year, she took home the top prize for BotY with her last installment in the Divergent franchise, Allegiant, an ending which sparked a HUGE debate even right here at Teen.com. Don't get us wrong, we're self-proclaimed die-hard Initiates, but still. THAT ENDING. We could continue to debate about it over and over, but rather than drill our thoughts into your heads (again), we'd rather show you that the Internet — excluding us — doesn't seem to agree with the choice entirely:

I've never hated a book the way I hate Allegiant— Manogna (@thatindiechik) May 14, 2014
Okay, we think we'll leave you with those thoughts. Do you think Veronica Roth deserves the high praise? What was your favorite read of the past year? And are you upset/thrilled about the ending of Allegiant? Tell us all your opinions in the comments!
All the movie moments true Divergent fans will love:
