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 20 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.
Check out the 2015-2016 Georgia Peach Book Award Nominees from DeKalb County Public Library (see links to the DCPL catalog below) and cast your votes at the Georgia Teen Book Award for Teen Readers site!
