2021 Teens’ Top Ten Book Groups Application Open

Library staff can now apply on behalf of their teen book groups for a chance to be a part of the official 2021-2022 Teens’ Top Ten book groups.

The Teens’ Top Ten, formerly called YA Galley, is an ongoing project in which publishers of young adult books provide advanced reading copies of their recent titles to teen book discussion groups, also known as the Teens’ Top Ten book groups, in libraries. In exchange, teen readers evaluate books for the publishers.

A total of fifteen teen book groups, led by an advisor, will be selected to fulfill a two-year term (January of 2021 – December 31, 2022). Advisors of the book groups must be current personal members of YALSA and are required to submit sample teen book reviews with their application. Book reviews must be filled out by teens and can be for any book that they have recently read. Learn more about the Advisor’s Procedures, eligibility requirements, and more by reading the FAQ.

Apply by October 15.
