My kids are avid readers. The love of reading came naturally for my oldest daughter, but my middle daughter didn’t start loving to read until her sister recommended she read “Goose Girl” by Shannon Hale when she was ten. From that point on, she discovered that bigger novels were not daunting anymore and could be fun and easy to read because she enjoyed reading them. My kids like a variety of books so you will find many different genres in this list. They are currently 16, 14, and 11 years old and most are in their personal libraries. We recommend these tween books for 10-12 year olds.
