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)

Clugston, Chynna. Queen Bee. Scholastic Graphix, 2005. ISBN 0439715725. Ages 10-14.

Haley Madison wishes she could just be a normal teenager, but her psychokinetic powers always seem to ruin her chances. So when her mom gets a new job and they have to move, Haley can’t wait to start classes at her new middle school where she intends to completely reinvent herself. She soon catches the attention of numerous people at school, including “The Hive,” only the most popular group of girls in school. But it is not long before a new queen bee dethrones her, and Haley must decide if popularity is worth all the trouble.
