Winner Announced on April 1!

Only a week to go until the 2010 MCTBA winner is announced on April 1!

The committee wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who helped make this first award truly incredible.  And a tremendous shout out to all 148 teens throughout Milwaukee County who voted!  You guys are awesome!

This is also the end of the reviews for the 2010 award.  We hope you enjoyed them and found some great books to read.

After the winner is announced on April 1, we’ll be back this fall with more info about the 2011 MCTBA.

Close Calls

We’ve reviewed the top 15 titles, and you have until Monday March 1st, 2010 to get your votes in by ballot or e-mail. (Not sure how to vote? Click here to find out how!).

While you are waiting for April 1st and the announcement of the first winner of the Milwaukee County Teen Book Award, we don’t want you to stop reading great teen books! Starting on Monday March 1st we will post some of our other favorite titles from 2009.

There were more than 15 great books written last year, and we had a hard time narrowing down our list. In order to share some of these books with you, we present our Close Calls. These are the titles we loved and fought for, but in the end there could only be 15.

Check back Monday for our first review!
