What are the Teens' Top Ten?

The Teens' Top Ten are a "teen choice" list of books, nominated and chosen by teens from books from the previous year.

Pretty cool to have a voice in selecting the best teen books of the year, right?

Here is how it works. Readers between the ages of 12 and 18 vote online between now and October 19, 2013 for their favorites from a list of 28 books below. It's that easy to cast your vote! Winners will be announced during Teen Read Week (the week of October 21, 2013).

Check out the Teen Book Finder app made available by the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) to help you locate the nominated books, as well as winning books from the last three years.
