Crossover at the buzzer

I have thought about where my vote would land for a while now and it falls on the side of Crossover.  I teach social studies all day and love a good historical read, but the Romanov's just didn't  capture my interest enough to become the one book to rule them all. Jellyfish was a much better read and actually pulled my zombie vote, but as much as I liked the story it seems too weird be the winner. (People we live in a land locked province, I can't really identify with the great jellyfish scare). Crossover I found accessible to a bigger audience or readers and the story is bigger than just a ball game. I truly believe that the best book of the 2015- 2016 Smackdown is Crossover.
