Teens’ Top Ten 2010: Nominations

The 25 titles nominated for the Teens’ Top Ten have been announced.  The Teens’ Top Ten is sponsored by YALSA (The Young Adult Library Services Association.  Each year, pre-selected teen groups from all over the country read teen books published this year or in the previous year to come up with a list of nominated titles for the Teens’ Top Ten.  Then teens all over the country get to vote on the nominated list to pick the final ten.  The national vote will take place in August and September of 2010, with the winner being announced during Teen Read Week, October 17-23, 2010.  Teens’ Top Ten is the only booklist nominated by teens and chosen by teens for teens.

These are listed in alphabetical author order.  Click on the links to request the books and see a book cover.  Just a tip:  This summer the nominations will be the list for teen summer reading, so plan on reading as many of the titles as possible.
