Each year the Alex Awards Committee  honors ten books published for adults that have special appeal to teen readers, ages 12 through 18. Whether you are a teen reader looking to expand past the teen collections or a reader who has been reading adult books for some time, the Alex Awards are a great place to look for reading recommendations. This year’s group of ten includes some awesome titles (some of which I’ve actually read! Shock!) or you might consider looking at some of the past years’ winners .
