Each month, our student reviewers read and review many new and advance books sent to us by authors and publishers. A reviewer is asked to rate the book they have reviewed on a 1 - 10 scale, with 10 being the highest rating a book can receive. Although this rating system is subjective, the majority of our reviewers are good judges of what will interest preteens and young adults in terms of stories, plots, and writing. This is because most of our reviewers are preteens and young adults, the very audience targeted by the books we have been asked to review.

A book receiving an 9 or 10 on our scale is designated a "Flamingnet TOP CHOICE," and the book is added to our list of TOP CHOICE Books. Authors or publishers of a TOP CHOICE book are offered this special award graphic to place on their web pages, linking to our review and rating of their book.
