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)

Ingrid Levin-Hall’s life couldn’t be better. She gets to play club soccer and lands the lead role of Alice in the Echo Falls production of Alice In Wonderland. But then her world seems to fall apart. After being in the wrong place at the wrong time, Ingrid realizes that she may be the only one who can solve the recent murder in town. Searching for clues like her favorite detective, Sherlock Holmes, Ingrid gets closer and closer to the truth. Echo Falls, once her quaint and simple little town, is now one full of forgotten history, scandals and secrets. But there are dangerous players involved as well, and it is only so long before Ingrid realizes she may have gotten in over her head.
