The big day is here! Your teens have been reading the 2011 Teens' Top Ten nominations since April, and now they can tell us which books are their favorites. Voting for the 2011 Teens' Top Ten opened today and is available through Sept. 15 — and this year, 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! (If you still want to use a separate link, that's available at www.surveymonkey.com/s/teenstopten11.)
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.
