YALSA's Teens' Top Ten

The YALSA 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 sixteen school and public libraries around the country.

Readers ages twelve to eighteen will vote online in August and September. The winners will be announced during Teen Read Week in October.

The Madison Library District has a complementary award, the MLD Teen Choice Award.
