This is the time of year when I dig into “best of the year” lists. Whether it’s to compare, catch up, or to discover a missed gem, it’s a great way to reflect on the good things that happened in 2016. As a super-fan of books for kids and teens I always want to find out and share out what’s great. I’ve gathered some great recommendations from the best resource around, Kitsap Regional Library staff, and included professional book critic’s lists of the year too. Cheers to this year’s best books for kids and teens!

School is just around the corner! Many of us are doing back-to-school shopping and errands, setting up schedules and seeing our new classrooms.
