In today’s society, often times it might seem like teenagers don’t have a lot of control over their world. Most teens have to keep their parent(s) and their teachers happy--tasks which basically add up to the equivalent of a full-time job. Until they turn 18, voting in local & national elections isn’t possible. So, where can young adults express their opinions and let their voices be heard?
Here’s a little secret. Young Adult Librarians across the country and all around the globe care about teens, and we always want to know what you think. Here’s just one example. We’ve listened to teenagers from around the world who recently voted on the top 10 young adult books from 2016… and we are happy to share the results here, check them out!
YALSA Official 2017 Teens’ Top Ten titles announced:
