Teen Board Question - November 2016, Part 1

With Thanksgiving (and turkey, stuffing and that post-meal nap) on the brain, we at Teenreads are feeling particularly thankful for our favorite books.

Now we're inviting our Teen Board members to join us at the figurative Thanksgiving table and tell us which book(s), series, author, or genre they’re most thankful for this holiday season.
