Teen Choice Awards

books for teens, chosen by teens

Every March, teens from across Iowa nominate books for the Iowa Teen Choice Award. During the summer months the nominations are narrowed down to 15 books. The books are then voted on by teens and the winner is announced in April. The full list of this year's candidates can be found at http://www.iasl-ia.org/p/iowa-teen-award.html. The Raft and One for the Murphys are two of this year's candidates.

In February, YALSA will award the Award for Excellence in Nonfiction to the best nonfiction book written for young adults. Laughing at my Nightmare is one of five finalists for this year's award. The other finalists can be found at: http://www.ala.org/yalsa/nonfiction-award
