The “Tween Recommended Reads” list from the Association of Library Services for Children (ALSC) includes contemporary fiction, fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and more. From R.J. Palacio’s Wonder to Raina Telgemeier’s graphic novel Drama, these 2013 titles shine.
The compilation features 25 titles chosen specifically to appeal to kids between the ages of nine to twelve, and to encourage them to read. PDFs of the booklist are available online in full color or black and white, and are free to download, copy and distribute. The titles were selected, compiled, and annotated by members of the ALSC School Age Program and Services Committee.
