Lorraine Hopping My sister Louise Hopping, veteran sixth grade reading teacher, whittled down NPR's "best" list of 100 tween books for ages 9-14 (whoa, what a range) to the top 20 she'd recommend for a broad audience of 11-year-olds (or more, precisely, 10 to 12.5). The goal isn't "best books of all time" but rather putting quality books in the hands and minds of tweens at the right time and age—"can't miss" titles in a variety of categories. Her blog post, with commentary and runner-ups: http://www.hoppingfun.com/blog.htm?po...
