Book Hunters in Brief #67: Girl Power: Tween Edition

It's a little strange, but perhaps not altogether surprising, that some of the people who have most shaped us as human beingss are not real people in the flesh-and-blood sense of that term.

This week, the Book Hunters offer some strong heroines for tweens.

I listen to a lot of audiobooks since I spend a lot of time in the car and 14 was a title I picked up recently. The author is Peter Clines, well known for his post-apocalyptic super hero series Ex-Heroes, and the narrator, Ray Porter, is top notch.
