For books to be eligible for consideration, they must be published between January 1– December 31, 2018.
The Teens' Top Ten is a "teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year.

Nominations are posted on the Thursday of National Library Week and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year.
