Thumbs Up! - Michigan Teens Vote for Favorite Book

The purpose of the Thumbs Up! Award is to recognize and promote an outstanding contribution to teen
literature that has both literary quality and teen appeal for those 13 to 18 years of age. The award
includes a statewide teen vote of 10 books. These 10 books were narrowed from over 100 by
professional librarians across the state.

This year's titles are:

  • Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock by Matthew Quick
  • Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell
  • Far, Far Away by Tom McNeal
  • Out of the Easy by Ruta Sepetys
  • Reality Boy by A.S. King
  • More Than This by Patrick Ness
  • Winger by Andrew Smith
  • Two Boys Kissing by David Levithan
  • Boxers & Saints by Gene Leun Yang
  • Midwinter Blood by Marcus Sedgwick

Read all of these books (or as many as you want) and select the ONE that you feel is the best book. Vote
by accessing the online voting ballot and make your selection. Be sure to vote by May 31, 2014.
