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
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
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
series to understand what's going on.

Keene High School. I've always been interested in art as long as I can
remember. In elementary school I always remember it being the most fun
class for me. In middle school I still loved art and was pretty good at
it. I remember always feeling anxious to get into the high school level
classes because I remember walking down the halls when I was younger and
looking at all the art hanging up in awe. I kept telling myself I was
going to be that good someday. Now that I'm here at the high school, I'm
learning a lot and I can't wait to go to college to learn more about
