YALSA’s 2009 Teens’ Top Ten Nominees Include Eternal by Cynthia Leitich Smith

I’m honored to report that Eternal (Candlewick, 2009) has been included among the 25 nominees for the 2009 YALSA Teens’ Top Ten List!

From YALSA: “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 fifteen school and public libraries around the country.

“Nominations are posted in April during National Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year during Teen Read Week (Oct. 18 to Oct. 24). Readers aged 12 to 18 can vote right here, online, anytime that week.”

The 10 nominations that receive the most votes during Teen Read Week will be named the official Teens’ Top Ten.
