Arkansas Teen Book Award - It's Your Vote that Counts
Last year, teens across Arkansas voted I Am Still Alive by Kate Alice Marshall as the winner of the Level 1 (Grades 7-9) Arkansas Teen Book Award. The Cruel Prince by Holly Black was the runner-up. The Level 2 winner (Grades 10-12) was Truly Devious by Maureen Johnson, and the runner-up was On the Come Up by Angie Thomas. Voting opened for the 2020-2021 nominees on September 25, 2020 and will run through August 31, 2021. Any Arkansas teen can vote for Level 1, Level 2, or both!
