Tween Tuesday is a weekly meme hosted here at GreenBeanTeenQueen. Tweens need great reads too, so this meme highlights great books for tween readers. Join the fun and post your Tween Tuesday post in the Mister Linky below.
After reading Mockingjay, I was talking to a co-worker who said she thought the The Hunger Games was good for tweens, while Mockingjay was more for older readers. With the rise in popularity of dystopian fiction, I thought I'd share some great tween dystopian reads.
-The Maze Runner by James Dashner-Thomas wakes up in an elevator lift with no memories and in a strange new place called The Glade. Some of the teens in The Glade are runners, who run through a maze, but you don't want to be there after dark. Maybe if you find a way out of the maze, maybe the Gladers will find answers to who they are and why they're there.
-The City of Ember by Jeanne DuPrau-The lights in Ember are beginning to fail. When Lina finds an ancient message, she believes it holds the answers to what's happening in Ember-and how they can save the city.
-Gone by Michael Grant-Everyone is gone-everyone except those under the age of fourteen. No adults, no rules, no help-now what?
-Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix-Luke has lived his life in hiding because he is a forbidden third child. But when he discovers there more be more like him, will he be able to stop living in secret?
-Epic by Conor Kostick-What if everything in life was decided by video games?
-The Giver by Lois Lowry-Jonas lives in an ideal society. On career assignment day, Jonas is chosen to be the Reciever of Memories. As Jonas studies, he learns that his society wasn't always perfect-shouldn't those memories be shared?
