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)

Bella meets and falls in love with Edward all over again in the first volume of this beautiful graphic novel adaptation of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight.

Though she is forewarned, Bella cannot help falling for Edward, the brooding gentleman who can barely control his thirst for her blood. Together they begin to build a relationship that tests the very balance of both of their worlds.
