YALSA's Top Ten Best Fiction for Young Adults 2017
The Teens' Top Ten is a "teen choice" list, where teens nominate and choose their favorite books of the year! Nominators are members of teen book groups in fifteen school and public libraries around the country.

2017 Teens' Top Ten Announced:
  1. The Passion of Dolssa by Julie Berry - In thirteenth-century Provence, Dolssa, branded a heretic after claiming to speak with God, flees her hometown.
  2. The Reader by Traci Chee - With overlapping stories of swashbuckling pirates and merciless assassins, this stunning series opener introduces a world where reading is unheard of and a young orphan struggles to discover her familys secrets.
  3. The Lie Tree by Frances Hardinge - In 1868, Faith's father is providing expertise at an archaeological dig, and when his body is found, most assume suicide amid the allegations of falsified discoveries. Only Faith suspects murder.
  4. The Female of the Species by Mindy McGinnis - The social hierarchy of a small-town high school is revealed through the voices of Alex, Jack, and Peekay
  5. Burn Baby Burn by Meg Medina - Nora López graduates from her Queens, New York, high school in the summer of 1977--a summer marked by a heat wave, arson, and the Son of Sam murders.
  6. Ghost by Jason Reynolds - His dad shot a gun at him, and "Ghost" Crenshaw has been running ever since.
  7. Salt to the Sea by Ruta Sepetys - It's near the end of WWII and four refugees travel on foot during January to board the Wilhelm Gustloff, a ship bound for safety.
  8. Scythe by Neal Shusterman - In a distant future in which humanity has practically conquered death, the population is controlled by Scythes, the only beings capable of causing death
  9. The Sun is Also a Star by Nicola Yoon - Daniel decides to let fate dictate his life and NaTasha doesn't believe in fate. But today, NaTasha will believe in anything if it allows her to avoid deportation.
  10. The Serpent King by Jeff Zentner - One is the son of a snake-handling preacher serving time in prison. One is a fashionista with New York dreams.
