Teens’ Top Ten 2011
The Teens’ Top Ten list is like a “people’s choice” list; each title is nominated and voted on by teens, ages 12-18. So unlike other award lists or awards for young adult literature, which are decided pretty exclusively by adults who work with teens, the Teens’ Top Ten is a chance for teen readers to voice their choice and pick out the best books published in the past year. The nominated titles are announced each spring during National Library Week and online voting happens between mid-August and mid-September. The final Teens Top Ten list is announced each year during Teen Read Week. This year 9,000 teens voted nation-wide. Do you see your favorites on the list? What would you have liked to see included?
