Mar 28, 2016 2 Comments
I mean, who doesn't remember spending an entire summer as a tween in the "Young Adult" (A.K.A. YA) section of the public library? (Oh, just me?) If you're a tween, teen, or grown-up, that may or may not admit to reading from the YA section- These books are enlightening, emensely entertaining and definitely worth a read.
Are You There God, It's Me Margaret, Judy Blume
Are You There God, It's Me Margaret was my gateway drug to "young adult" fiction. Originally published in the 1970s, this novel transcends time and is easily digestable for any tween who is interested in best friends, crushes, and the "weird stuff" that's happening to their bodies. (Oh the drama!)
The Porcupine Year, Lousie Erdrich
The Porcupine Year is story based on a 12 year-old, Obijwe girl in 1852 who has been displaced by the the Unitsed States government and are looking for a new place to live. This is a lovely story of a young girl's transition into womenhood which highlights the supernatural power associated with menstruation in Obijwe culture.
Just as Long as We're Together, Judy Blume
Another "coming of age" novel by Judy Blume, Just as Long as We're Together is what every asipiring middle schooler needs to read. Every tween can relate to the best friend drama and sexual curiosity in the book. Plus, there is an amazing plot twist that has to do with adoption. This one is a "page-turner," people!
Wintergirls, Laurie Halse Anderson
Wintergirls, an emotional novel about self acceptance is both heart breaking and beautiful. Kudos to the author, Laurie Anderson for portraying the readers with a realistic outlook on today's teenage issues and outlook on body image. (Trigger warning: This novel realisticly addresses anorexia.)
Millicent Min, Girl Genius, Lisa Yee
Millicent Min isn't an average 11-year-old. She is a certified genius. (Yes, this actually exists! You can find out more about being a certified genus here.) Yee, humerously captures the loneliness of being a smart, but socially awkward tween in this easy read.
