Looking for great teen books?  Look no further than YALSA's Book Awards and Selected Booklists.

While these books have been selected for teens from 12 to 18 years of age, the award-winning titles and the titles on YALSA's selected lists span a broad range of reading and maturity levels.  We encourage adults to take an active role in helping individual teens choose those books that are the best fit for them and their families.
