Tween Reader’s Advisory Resource List

This book list was created as a Tween Reader’s Advisory for the Materials for Tweens class I am currently taking at SJSU as part of my master’s program. There are more books I would have liked to include but I had to make some hard decisions to try to create a diverse and interesting book list. I tried to include books from many different areas though I still favored my favorite genres from when I was a tween.
