Green Mountain Book Award 2018—2019

This is the twelfth year of the Green Mountain Book Award, a reader’s choice award for students in grades 9—12. Co-sponsored by the Vermont Department of Libraries and the Vermont School Library Association, this program is designed to introduce to high school students some excellent books for their pleasure reading. These books, to be read during the 2016—2017 school year, comprise the master list for the award to be made in 2017. Voting forms will be made available to all Vermont schools and public libraries in the spring so that young adults can vote for their favorite book. The master list titles have been selected to satisfy the reading interests of teens in grades 9—12, and include both adult and young adult books. All books on the list were first published in 2014—2015.
