2014 Teens’ Top Ten: Everything You Need to Know About Rainbow Rowell

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. Nominations are posted on Celebrate Teen Literature Day, the Thursday of National Library Week, and teens across the country vote on their favorite titles each year.

The votes are in for 2014, and the winners have been announced– and we’re featuring them here on The Hub. Today I’ll highlight Rainbow Rowell, honored for her novel Eleanor and Park, and link you to some great interviews, profiles, fan art, and more.
