Unfortunately, voting is closed now for the final top ten list, but if you don’t have some of these books in your library they are worth looking into. These titles were nominated by reading groups of teens across the country, so this list provides a greater preponderance of titles that would be popular and relevant to more teen readers than some of the other formal youth literary awards.
