Our Favorites of the Year 2018: Kids and Teens

Welcome to our Kids and Teens Top Ten of 2018! We've been working for weeks to decide on our favorites (there are so many great reads!) in 5 categories - Teen, Middle Grade, Younger Readers, Picture Books, and Nonfiction. The top two from each of those categories move on to our top list for the entire section. We hope you'll find something you love for all the readers in your life.
