Meet the Poll: Please choose the FIVE that move you the most

Each week we share with you what we are reading and enjoying. The following made the top of our lists last week. Please help us determine which 5 of these will be featured as fics of the week, next week, by choosing FIVE from the poll on the right!


Due to summertime, a lot of us are out and about- spending more time with our families on vacation and less time inside-online. For this reason, we are cutting the amount of stories that will be reviewed each week to ONLY the first place poll winner. We will, however, still be featuring the remaining four winners with their banners, links and summaries so that TLS will still be able to spotlight at least five stories per week. We thank you all for your understanding and for visiting The Lemonade Stand each week and good luck to all of the poll candidates. Have a safe and happy 4th of July!
