What do teens want to read?

At least, what do teens who are already readers want to read? Teensread.com has conducted surveys since 2005. One takeaway: Make sure the copy on your book’s jacket is enticing. “[B]ook copy was the most important factor that would make teens pick up a book. A stunning 91% saw this as the most important influence. The cover was important to 79%. The next most important influence, with 77%, was familiarity with an author's previous work; 74% were looking for the next book in a series. For 73%, the title was important.”
