Georgia Peach Award Nominees

The purpose of the Georgia Peach Book Award for Teen Readers is to highlight and promote the best current young adult literature for Georgia high school age students, to encourage young adults to read and to promote the development of cooperative school and public library services for young adults. Teens rate their favorite books out of the year's top 20 nominees at their high schools and local public libraries.(from Georgia Peach Book website)

 

And the winner is . . .

The 2019-2020 Georgia Peach Award Winners have not been selected due to the current situation. As soon as the winner is announced, it will be posted.
 

Teens Read & Rate!

The Georgia Peach Book Award works to promote reading and literacy skills in teens. Each year, a committee of school and public librarians reads widely to choose a list of twenty nominated titles. Then young adults choose books from among that list to read and rate. The books that earn the highest number of readers and ratings become the Peach Book and Honor Books.
