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)

Harrison, Lisi. The Clique. Little, Brown and Company, 2004. ISBN 0316701297. Ages 12-14.

The Clique is the most popular group of girls at Octavian Country Day School. They are beautiful, smart and fashionable—everything that Claire (the new girl in town) is not. But while Claire takes hits from The Clique for not dressing cool enough or being rich enough, she also has a few tricks up her sleeve. Soon The Clique fractures and their leader Massie is on the outs as the other girls rally around Claire. Is it too good to be true? How long will her newfound popularity last? And is it even worth it? Read The Clique series to find out!
