NEW YORK (AP) - Veronica Roth is the current rave among teen readers, according to a new survey.

The young adult division of the American Library Association announced Monday that Roth's "Divergent" was picked No. 1 by teens voting online between Aug. 15 and Sept. 15. Roth's dystopian story has been compared to Suzanne Collins' million-selling "The Hunger Games."

John Green's "The Fault of Our Stars" was second, followed by Marie Lu's "Legend." Other favorites included Ransom Riggs' "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," Sarah Dessen's "What Happened to Goodbye" and Beth Revis' "Across the Universe."

Rounding out the list were books by Marissa Meyer, Maggie Stiefvater, Gayle Forman and Meg Cabot.
