The Only National Book Award Decided by Teens!

The Teen Readers' Choice Awards helps to promote reading and literacy in teens by highlighting their favorite literature of the past two years. Unlike other awards, this award is decided by teens.

Each year, the award celebrates the diversity, challenges, beauty, and growth that comes from being an adolescent, and the books and authors who have made an impact on young readers.
