The end of the school year is coming up soon. If you work with teens, this summer will be the perfect time to read the nominated books for the 2011 Teens’ Top Ten. Since teens will be reading the top ten selected books in August and September, you will be ahead of the game for Teen Read Week, October 16-22. You’ll be able to suggest other titles for your teens to read during the fall.
This is a very interesting list because the nominated books are selected by teens…..and not adults who sometimes have a different perspective of what teens should be reading.
The 25 nominated titles with a few book-related teaching links from our database include:
Angel by James Patterson
Before I Fall by Lauren Oliver (Audiobook Excerpt)
