2015 Librarians’ Choice Award announced

Each summer the Sno-Isle Library staff read thousands of book reviews written by teens, with each library picking out their favorite. Then, at the end of the summer, they all vote and pick their favorite of the summer.

This year’s winner is Victoria Eborall, who goes to the Edmonds Library, for her review of All the Bright Places by Jennifer Niven.

Description: This is a story that is told in two perspectives: a
boy named Finch, and a girl named Violet. When they save each other from
a suicide attempt by some coincidence, then are thrown together again
by a school project, their lives become forever entwined. Both hurting,
they begin to change as they spend together. But not all change is for
the better.

My Thoughts: As likely as it is that I will be cast out of the
teen reading community for saying this, I am not a fan of the poetic
male protagonist, I want something more realistic than a guy spouting
poetry at me. But the thing I loved about this book was that it was
realistic in the place where it really mattered: talking about mental
illness and suicide.

Recommendation: Fans of John Green, and mental illness sufferers.

I loved this book, too Victoria, and I’m glad you read and wrote about it, and shared your review with others.

Victoria will be receiving a HUGE box of brand new teen books.

Thanks to everyone who entered. Watch for our next contest in October for Teen Read Month!
