One of the latest teen movies this year is To All the Boys: Always and Forever. It is the third and final installment in the popular Netflix film series To All the Boy's I've Loved Before. But which one of these teen films is the best? You get to help decide with your votes.

Vote up your favorite teen movies and help them get to the top of the list. You can also vote down any teen films you never want to see again. But be sure to check back for more teen movies as they are added to the list once they're released in 2021.
