Learn how your book group can be involved in Teens' Top Ten!

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 fifteen school and public libraries around the country. Nominations are posted on the Thursday of National Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year. Readers ages twelve to eighteen will vote online between August 15 and Teen Read Week™ (October 9-15, 2016) here on the Teens' Top Ten site. The winners will be announced the week after Teen Read Week.

Meet the 2015 - 2016 Teens' Top Ten book groups, who will choose the nominees for the next two years.

See all the Teens' Top Ten books, plus titles from YALSA's other awards and booklists, in the Teen Book Finder App.
