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.
The 2019 Top 10 books are:
- 57 Bus: A True Story of Two Teenagers and the Crime That Changed Their Lives by Dashka Slater
