What is RITBA?
RITBA is the Rhode Island Teen Book Award. Each year, a team of librarians chooses 20+ books which they feel are some of the best for teens published in the last couple of years. Then, Rhode Island teens between the ages of 12 and 18 vote for their favorite.
How do I participate?
Read at least 3 of the books on this year's list. Then, in February, you will be able to vote for your favorite book by filling out a ballot in the library.
Click on a book title below to visit the library catalog page for that book, which includes a description and tells you whether the book is checked in.
Last year's winner was:
The Fault in our Stars by John Green.

Rhode Island Teen Book Nominees for 2015!!!
The Rhode Island Teen Book Award is a collaborative project of the School Librarians of Rhode Island (SLoRI) and the Rhode Island Library Assocation (RILA).
The goal of the Rhode Island Teen Book Award is to promote quality literature for teens by highlighting well-written books that will be of interest to those between the ages of 12 and 18 years of age. It is the hope of the committee that by allowing teens to select the winner from each year's list of nominees, teens will be encouraged to not only read more, but also discuss the books they are reading with their friends and family at school, the local library, and at home.
