Book 50: Twelve by Lauren Myracle (2007)



I was very impressed when I picked up the first book in the series: Eleven. After reading a lot of books for girls, I was expecting for the main character to be whining over the most trivial things. As it turned out, eleven-year-old Winnie was a smart girl who knew what she was doing. She could be naive at times, but overall she was smart and I admired her.

After reading Twelve, though, I feel like Winnie is turning into one of those valley girls. Her narrative is sprinkled with the word “like” and the phrase “Oh God.” And at the end she decides she likes malls because she’s becoming a teenager.

She’s still bearable in this book, but I must wonder how the next book is going to be like. Should I give up on Lauren Myracle like I gave up on Meg Cabot? Stay tuned for the answer.

    i think that the book eleven was great, so i am hoping that twelve will be as good or better. Winnie was a smart, funny girl, just like me. i just hope that winnie changes just alittle bit in twelve because she did some stupid stuff in eleven that i did not like. i hope that twelve is great!
