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.

Daughter of Smoke and Bone, by Laini Taylor

This incredibly written fantasy – like no other – was recently nominated by New Hampshire teens, and it made it onto the top 13 Flume nominations for this year.“  I have been riveted by the unusual plot.“  Set in Prague, offering an interesting view of the Seraphim and other religious figures you thought you knew, including the devil himself, you will be engrossed in this atmospheric and beautifully woven story.

Around the world, black handprints are appearing on doorways, scorched there by winged strangers who have crept through a slit in the sky.“  In a dark and dusty shop, a devil’s supply of human teeth grown dangerously low.“  And in the tangled lanes of Prague, a young art student is about to be caught up in a brutal otherwordly war.“  Meet Karou. She fills her sketchbooks with monsters that may or may not be real; she’s prone to disappearing on mysterious “errands”; she speaks many languages–not all of them human; and her bright blue hair actually grows out of her head that color. Who is she? That is the question that haunts her, and she’s about to find out.“  When one of the strangers–beautiful, haunted Akiva–fixes his fire-colored eyes on her in an alley in Marrakesh, the result is blood and starlight, secrets unveiled, and a star-crossed love whose roots drink deep of a violent past. But will Karou live to regret learning the truth about herself?
