Flume Award

What Is It?
The 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.
What's The Nomination Criteria?
Titles must be nominated by teens in grades 9-12, can be fiction or nonfiction books, with appeal to this age group. They must have a publication date within the last two years. If the book is part of a series, it must be able to stand alone, meaning a reader doesn't have to read the other books in the series to understand what's going on.

  1. Wow. Just...I can't even describe my feelings right now after reading Michelle Hodkin's The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer. And I think I get it. I get why people were over the moon for this book! It was so mysterious, so incredible! And the ending?! Just wow!
