Teens across the country have voted for their favorite books and the top nominees were just announced by the Young Adult Library Services Association. Two of the top picks are on Freading:

My Life With the Walter Boys by Ali Novacs
Intended for grades 9 and up, it is the fascinating story of the organized and always proper Jackie Howard who does not like change. Her life is turned upside down when she loses family to tragedy and must move in with a family of all boys.

Boys like you- Juliana Stone
Also for High School age students, characters Nathan and Monroe start a teenage romance while going through life changing events.

" A contemporary romance-with-a-conscience...Stone writes it with confidence and style" - Kirkus

"The story handles challenging subjects like sex, drunk driving, and faith after tragedy in a sensitive and age-appropriate way without veering into melodrama...just what readers need. " - School Library Journal
