In October, several students and I had the pleasure of attending the first ever Teen Readers' Choice Awards for Louisiana in Baton Rouge. You can read about it here. There have been readers' choice awards at the elementary and middle school level for a number of years, but a teen choice award was not added until 2012.
The voting has opened for the 2013 award. You must read at least two of the books and be 12 to 18 years old to vote. Voting will end on February 1, 2013. Open here to cast your vote.
Here is a list of the books that have been nominated:
Lauren Oliver: Before I Fall
Cassandra Clare: Clockwork Angel
Drew Brees: Coming Back Stronger: Unleashing the Hidden Power of Adversity
Ally Condie: Matched
Paolo Bacigalupi: Ship Breaker
Suzanne Supplee Somebody Everybody Listens To
Matthew Quick: Sorta Like a Rock Star
Swati Avasthi: Split
Holly Black: White Cat: Curse Workers Book 1
G. Neri: Yummy: the Last Days of a Southside Shorty
