Teen Book Awards

YALSA (Young Adult Library Services Association) Book Awards have been selected for teens from 12 to 18 years of age.  The titles on YALSA's book lists contain a broad range of reading and maturity levels. We encourage parents to take an active role in helping individual teens choose those books that are the best fit for them and their families.
