Whatcha' Reading This Summer?

As we all fondly recall, summer vacation is the ultimate!  Staying up late into the night, basking in the golden sun, slurping up frothy ice cream concoctions, and yes - hopefully reading a good book or two or three...or three in one day.  And why not?  It's summer, after all.

Here is a list of twelve of my fave summer reads for tweens.  The list includes some classics and some contemporary, depending on personal choice.  Either way, tweens will have a blast getting their read on!!!
