We are thrilled to announce that THREE Sourcebooks titles are part of the 2019 YALSA Top Ten Nominees list: Mask of Shadows by Linsey Miller, Paper Hearts by Ali Novak, and Remember Me Always by Renee Collins.
The Teens’ Top Ten is a “teen choice” list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the previous year. Nominators are members of teen book groups in sixteen school and public libraries around the country selected by YALSA to participate.
This year’s list of nominees features 25 titles that were published between Jan. 1, 2017 and Dec. 31, 2017. YALSA is calling on libraries to encourage teens to read the nominees throughout the summer so they are ready for the national Teens’ Top Ten vote, which will take place August 15 through Teen Read Week (October 7-13). The ten nominees that receive the most votes will be named the official 2018 Teens’ Top Ten.
