If you’re feeling an eye roll coming on, resist for a moment and peruse 2011's list of Nutmeg Teen Nominees. These books are good (really) and readers like you helped nominate the books for your consideration. So read 'em this summer (take some mental notes or better yet, jot them down); then vote next January on which of 10 books was your hands-down favorite. Your opinions absolutely do -- make no mistake -- very much count.
Read plot descriptions here then click on a title to place your reserves. Books target readers in grades 7 and 8.
