Finding good books for younger teens, or “tweens,” can sometimes be a challenge, since tweens are too old for many kids’ books, but too young for the most mature YA novels. Tune in this month to hear interviews with Kelsey Fink and Ethan Patrick, two avid tween readers. They’ll talk about what they look for in a good book, some of their favorite titles, and what adults should know about helping tweens find books they’ll want to read.
After listening to this episode, be sure to print out this list of recommended titles to take to the library or book seller.
