Tween Books Needed! I had been discussing the fact that more tween books (older middle grade) are needed out there in the world with one of my authors, and a few days later, he sent me this School Library Journal article about that very subject. In the tween years, kids are so vulnerable and open, so many new ideas can take hold. I would love to see more tween books with male protagonists (of all stripes) that face adversity, but without violence and death. Send it to me if you’ve got it!
