YALSA announces the Teen Top 10 finalists! Read and prepare to vote in August!
The Teens' Top Ten is a "teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year. Nominators are members of teen book groups in sixteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted during National Library Week, and teens across the country are encouraged to read as many nominees as they can over the summer. Readers ages twelve to eighteen will then vote online between August and Teen Read Week to select their favorites. The 10 titles with the most votes become the year’s Teens’ Top Ten. If you want something good to read this summer, use this list for suggestions!
