2019 Nominees

The Teen Reader’s Choice Award gives students the opportunity to interact and enjoy reading with other students who have the same passion. Each year’s TRCA books are chosen by a committee comprised of CCRCE Library Services staff. The annual list of ten titles is carefully chosen based on the best critical reviews, readers’ reviews, and the books’ performances on well-respected awards lists.

  • 57 Bus: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives by Dashka Slater
