The Thumbs Up! Award is given annually to the author of an original work that has both literary quality and teen appeal for those 13 to 18 years of age. The award includes a statewide teen vote of the top ten books. These 10 books were narrowed down from 100 by a group of Michigan youth and teen librarians.

Now it’s time for the teens to vote. Please distribute the list of Top Ten Titles to Michigan teens so they can read and vote! Voting will be open through May 31, 2014.

The winning book will be announced at MLA 2014 in Grand Rapids in October.
