TWEEN BOOK CLUB
Kids ages 9-12 are encouraged to participate in our Tween Book Club. Each quarter we will suggest a book to read, followed up by an optional get-together where kids can share thoughts and ideas about the book.
Here’s what one of our readers says about the Tween Book Club:
The Aldersgate Tween Book Club
By Colin Sullivan
“I like the Aldersgate Tween Book Club because it gives everyone a chance to speak for themselves and say their opinion about the book. Another reason why I like the book club is we get to read fun books that are a mix of fiction and nonfiction. Also, every time you come to a meeting, you get to eat something delicious like tacos, ice cream, or popcorn. The leader, Ms. Elaine, is very nice and encouraging to us in the book club. She asks us a lot of questions and keeps the book club on topic.
“My favorite book that I have read in the book club is called “Mr. Lemonchello’s Library.” I like it because it is about a mystery that the kids in the book have to figure out and whoever figures it out first will become famous. I recommend this book and the Tween Book Club to all kids who like to read!”

The Candymakers by Wendy Mass
Four children have been chosen to compete in a national competition to find the tastiest confection in the country. Who will invent a candy more delicious than the Oozing Crunchorama or the Neon Lightning Chew? Logan, the Candymaker’s son, who can detect the color of chocolate by touch alone? Miles, the boy who is allergic to merry-go-rounds and the color pink? Daisy, the cheerful girl who can lift a fifty-pound lump of taffy like it’s a feather? Or Philip, the suit-and-tie wearing boy who’s always scribbling in a secret notebook? This sweet, charming, and cleverly crafted story, told from each contestant’s perspective, is filled with mystery, friendship, and juicy revelations.
