Flume Award Winner

A few weeks back, teens at Newfound Regional High School and the Gordon-Nash Library voted for the 2014 NH Flume Award, an annual award given at the state level for a recently published Young Adult book. The winner this year was The Fault In Our Stars by John Green.

If you want to read some teen reviews on this book, there are several here. I know many people - adults as well as teens - who have read this book, and most would recommend it!

The Newfound teens who voted for the Flume Award overwhelming chose this book! Ms. Zick at the NRHS Library Media Center reports that every time the the book comes in, it goes out again. Our own copy here has been checked out regularly as well. And it's being released as a film in just a few weeks!

Before you know it, it will be time to vote for the 2015 award! Here are the nominees - we have most of them at the GNL!
