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.

  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.

Michael L. Printz Award
clear
The 2016 Michael L. Printz Award, given for excellence in literature written for young adults, has been awarded to

  • Bone Gap, written by Laura Ruby. Bone Gap is the story of Roza, a beautiful girl who is taken from a quiet midwestern town and imprisoned by a mysterious man, and Finn, the only witness, who cannot forgive himself for being unable to identify her kidnapper.
Two Printz Honor Books also were named:

  • Out of Darkness, by Ashley Hope Pérez. Set against the back drop of one of the worst school tragedies in American history, Out of Darkness is a brutal and gripping novel about race, segregation, love, and the forces that destroy people.
  • The Ghosts of Heaven, by Marcus Sedgwick. Individual tales spanning centuries of time connected only by a single thread-in this case a shape; the spiral.
