Teen-Reviewed Books

Every year, local teens read and review highly acclaimed fiction and non-fiction books for the benefit of their peers, through our Teen Book Review Program.  Teens earn community service credit for their reviews.  If you would like to review YA books for the benefit of your friends and fellow students, and earn community service credit, you can find the Registration Form on our Community Service Page

Below are links to the review(s) of some of these acclaimed titles; check them out and find your next favorite book!
