Florida Teens Read Award List 2020-2021

FTR Book Covers
  • The Florida Teens Read (FTR) program is a student- choice reading award program to determine which YA book wins the annual award as the favorite of teens in Florida. The reading list is comprised of fifteen titles that have been chosen by a committee of twelve school librarians specifically to engage high school students (grades 9 through 12) in reading and reflect their interests as well as represent a variety of genres, formats, reading levels, viewpoints, and ethnic and cultural perspectives.  The committee meets in the spring to select the fifteen titles to comprise the next school year's list.  This program is designed to entice teens to read by engaging their interest and providing a spur to critical thinking (Florida Teens Read Website, 2020).
