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)

After getting her very own guitar, Vita Escolar is determined to start a band. Too bad none of the people who try out—Walt, Tanya, Plinko and Jay—can play any kind of instrument. But what they lack in musical talent they make up for in virtual artistry. Together they decide to create the best virtual music video ever, and when Vita learns about Tanya’s secret, she knows just the cause to help benefit a friend in need.
