Award Winning Books
Each month we will read the winner of a different teen book award. At book club, we will discuss the book and the award and do an activity related to the book. All are welcome, even if you haven’t finished or even started the book!
For July the book award is the YALSA Teens’ Top Ten Award and the winning book we will be reading is Turtles All the Way Down by John Green. For our activity we will make seashell turtles on mini easels.
YALSA Teens’ Top Ten
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 fifteen school and public libraries around the country.
Turtles All the Way Down
Turtles All the Way Down was the 2018 winner of the YALSA Teens’ Top Ten Award.
High-school junior Aza, who struggles with anxiety and obsessive-compulsive disorder,
reconnects with childhood friend Davis after his billionaire father disappears, on the run from
the police. But can Aza and her friends help Davis cope with being parentless when she’s having
trouble managing her own downward-spiraling thoughts?
