The Running Dream (Schneider Family Book Award - Teen Book Winner)


The New York Public Library is proud to announce its list of the Best Books for Teens 2014! The list includes a selection of 25 novels, non-fiction books, and graphic novels chosen by a committee of Young Adult librarians who work with teens in NYPL’s neighborhood branches. From March through November we debated and argued, and ultimately decided on these books. It was a tough call, but we think these 25 titles represent some of the best books out there for teens right now.

Members of the NYPL's Best Books for Teens 2014 commitee are: Co-chairs, Anne Rouyer, Mulberry Street Library and Andrea Lipinski, Kingsbridge Library; Elizabeth R. Bird, BookOps; Shauntee Burns, St. George Library; Amalia Butler, Muhlenberg Library; Amber Certain, Columbus Library; Sandra Farag, Mid-Manhattan Library; Jennifer Gaeta, New Dorp Library; Ashley Gonzalez, St. Agnes Library; Mina Hong, Epiphany Library; Thomas Knowlton, MyLibraryNYC; Gretchen Kolderup, Young Adult Programming; Jeanne Lamb, BookOps; Charlie Radin, Inwood Library; Nicole Rosenbluth, Pelham Bay Library; Lindsy Serrano, Mulberry Street Library; Brian Stokes, Grand Central Library.
