The Secret Identity of Devon Delaney by Lauren Barnholdt
-I recently bought the sequel to this one, Devon Delaney Should Totally Know Better, so I wanted to share with you how much I loved the first one.
Devon has spent all summer telling her summer friend Lexi about how she's very popular at school and dating the hottest guy (so not true). So when Lexi ends up staying past summer and starts attending school with Devon, Devon scrambles to make her lies become truth.
This is a fun read and one of the cutest tween romances ever! If you know any tween or middle school girls, this would be the perfect holiday gift.
Shug by Jenny Han
I reviewed Shug when I first started blogging, but it's so good it deserves to get mentioned on Tween Tuesday. Annemarie is crushing on her long time best friend, Mark, but he's not seeing her in the same way. Annemarie is also dealing with growing up, friendships changing, and family drifting apart.
This is a tween romance that delves deeper than some reads-think Sarah Dessen for the younger set.
