Teen Reader's Choice Award

What is the CCRSB Teen Reader’s Choice Award?

Chignecto-Central Regional School Board’s first student-driven book award, facilitated by CCRSB Library Services. This is the fifth year for the award. Last year, students in grades 7-12 nominated their favourite book, read the top 10 most-nominated titles, and voted for what they considered to be the best book. 851 votes were cast across the board and We Were Liars by E. Lockhart was crowned the  winner.

This year, CCRSB Library Services staff carefully chose the Top 10 based on the best critical reviews, readers’ reviews, and the books’ performances on well-respected awards lists. The titles represent a wide range of genres and include some of the best fiction and non-fiction.
