In my experience, one of the most difficult age groups to find books for is 11 to 14 years old. For young teens and pre-teens, also known “tweens,” finding books can be tricky. As kids start to outgrow much of the independent reader section of the bookstore, heading to the Young Adult section might seem like a great choice. Unfortunately, some teen fiction often deals with very dark subject matter and is better suited to high school-aged teens.
