You have until March 1st to e-mail us your vote! Send votes to mctba.votes @

Voting closes on March 1st, and we’ll announce the winner on April 1st, no joke! To keep you reading until then we’ll post some of our favorite titles from the past year that we loved that didn’t make our top 15. There are so many awesome teen books out there, it’s hard to narrow the list to just 15!
