The Teen Reader’s Choice Award is the Chignecto-Central Regional School Board’s first student-driven book award, facilitated by CCRSB Library Services. Launched in 2012, 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.

Since then, the Award shortlist has been selected by CCRSB Library Staff to engage students with current critically-acclaimed fiction titles published for young adults. The Top 10 books are based on the best critical reviews, readers’ reviews, and the books’ performances on well-respected awards lists. These titles represent a wide range of genres and include some of the best fiction and non-fiction books published within the previous year.
