Clickbait: irresistible headlines that make it impossible to not click on an article. It’s here to stay in the social Internet world, and if you have a sense of humor about it (like The Onion‘s hilarious clickbait satire site, Clickhole) it’ll make the traffic grabbing bearable. I recently thought about some of my favorite YA novels and wondered what it would look like if their titles were rewritten as clickbait.
