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. Nominations are posted on the American Library Association website and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year. Readers ages twelve to eighteen will vote online between Aug. 15 and Sept. 16. This year, 9,000 votes were received and the winners are:
Clockwork Angel by Cassandra Clare
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
