Welcome to TweenCity!

This blog is designed to be a selection resource for children between the ages of 9-14, as well as a reader's advisory tool for both current and future librarians.

PLEASE NOTE: An appropriate age range is given for each title, however this is merely a suggestion. Children, especially tweens, read at many different levels which cannot be determined simply by age or grade level. Therefore, it is important to assess each child's reading level before suggesting titles. In addition, since this blog is designed for tweens only, some titles listed may also be appropriate for children older or younger than ages 9-14, but these ages will not be listed.

Ages 9-12: Elementary school level (Grades 3-6)
Ages 12-14: Middle school level (Grades 7-8)

Riordan, Rick. The 39 Clues: The Maze Of Bones. Scholastic, 2008. ISBN 978-0545090544. Ages 9-12.

When Grace Cahill dies, she leaves her heirs with a choice—take the $2 million or give it up for one clue that will lead them on a wild journey in search of a great treasure and all the power in the world. For Amy and Dan Cahill, the money is tempting, but the adventure means learning more about their grandmother, their deceased parents, and a family history that includes almost every major figure and event known to man. But there are others who take the clue as well, and they all have one objective in mind—take out their competition. Now Dan and Amy are running for their lives, and searching for the answers to their first clue, and the beginning of the greatest adventure they will ever have. Read all ten of the 39 Clues books, and search for the clues yourself at http://www.the39clues.com/.
