List: Top 10 Favorite New Books for Teenagers (Young Adults) in USA

Date: October, 2005

Source: American Library Association (ALA)

Base: YALSA's Young Adult (YA) Galley Project gave access to advance copies of young adult books to national teen book discussion groups. These groups then evaluated the books that were published from January 2004 through October 2005, and created a list of 78 nominations for the best new books for young adults. Over 2400 online ballots were cast and the results, combined with the results of a separate vote of the TTT groups, determined the final ranking of the 10 top books of the year, as selected by teen readers.

Notes: The vote took place during 'Teen Read Week', October 16-22, 2005.
