The votes are in! NPR has released the results of its poll on Teen literature. Take a look at the results of the '100 Best-Ever Teen Novels'.
Harry Potter is leading the charge with the number one spot. There are some classics in there, and a few that I didn't expect (Ok, so there's some I don't think deserve to be on the list... ). Did your favorites make the cut? If not - let us know! We can start our own Best-Ever list right here at SCCL.
Why not check out some of the authors that you haven't read, you might develop a whole new book-crush!
In case you've missed them, here's the Top 5 from the list:
Coming in second is Katniss Everdeen and her unfortunate turn in Panem's Hunger Games. With The Hunger Games just released on DVD and Catching Fire still filming there's plenty of time to read the whole series.
Another one from the classics file, Salinger's The Catcher in the Rye has made it's mark as one of Time Magazines Top 100 books of the Century. NPR's list puts it at number 5 for all time Best-Ever Teen books.
