Teens are encouraged to read at least three of the titles on the current list in order to cast a vote. The content of some of the titles may be more mature than younger students have previously encountered. Please recognize that this is a voluntary reading program. Not every book selected will suit every student.  In a democratic society, a variety of ideas must find voice. As readers, teens have the choice to read more mature titles or close the book.
