members of teen book groups in fifteen school and public libraries
around the country. Nominations are posted in April during National

titles each year during Teen Read Week. Readers aged twelve to
eighteen can vote right here, online, anytime that week. Be sure to keep checking the dates for next year so you too can vote for your favorites!
