Flume Award

divergentcoverThe Flume: NH Teen Reader’s Choice Award was created in 2005 in response to a New Hampshire teens’ request to have a book award geared towards high school students. This award is a state-wide venture led by a collaborative effort from school and public librarians. Each year teens nominate titles, published within the last two years, they think deserve to be recognized. Librarians then narrow the group of titles to a list of 13. Teens then vote for the winning title from the list of 13.
