CCRSB Teen Reader’s Choice Award Winner

You voted and the results are in! 1388 votes were cast and counted, and the winner of the 2011-2012 Teen Reader’s Choice Award is The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins!

The first book in the wildly popular dystopian series took away the top honour with almost half (588) of the votes. To see how the rest of the Top 10 books ranked, check out the award blog.

I want to thank all the students who participated at SHS. An award ceremony was held in library for Jr. and Sr. Book Club members during lunch hour on Tuesday, May 29. It was a great way to end the first CCRSB Teen Reader’s Choice Award!
