Book News: “Teens’ Top Ten” Winners 2020

October 23, 2020
Pumpkinheads by Rainbow Rowell book cover

The votes for the 2020 Teens’ Top Ten award have been counted! Because the votes for this readers’ choice award (sponsored annually by the Young Adult Library Services Association) are gathered from teen readers around the nation, the winners are always an interesting mix of genres, formats, and series vs. stand-alone titles. Other than the fact that author Rainbow Rowell captured the first two spots on the list (!), this year is a fine example of that mix. Looking for mystery, fantasy, sci-fi, realistic fic, historical fic, suspense, or graphic novel recommendations from readers like yourself? Then, check out copies of this year’s winners via the Minerva catalog and the Cloud Library links below.
