It’s that time of year again, when the Young Adult Library Services Association (YALSA) asks teen readers to vote on the year’s top 10 Young Adult books. Last year Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins took out the award. Earlier in the year it was announced that Mockingjay had been nominated for this year’s award. Now the YALSA say it’s time to vote.
Voting for the 2011 Teens’ Top Ten opened today and is available
through Sept. 15 — and we’ve made it even easier for your teens to vote by
embedding the TTT survey right on the Teens’ Top Ten homepage at www.ala.org/teenstopten!
We’ll announce the winners at www.ala.org/teenstopten during Teen
Read Week, Oct. 16-22.
The Teens’ Top Ten is a reading list chosen entirely by and for
teens. The twenty-five official nominations were chosen by sixteen teen book
groups from across the U.S. that participate in YALSA’s YA Galley project, in
which publishers provide book groups with galleys and the teens provide
feedback. Last year, more than 8,000 teens voted for the Teens’ Top Ten,
choosing Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins as their favorite title.
Good luck to Suzanne Collins and Mockingjay.
