Top 10 Best Books for Preteens

The Top Ten
1 The Hunger Games (Suzanne Collins)

Nah, I don't like it, and I'm a pre-teen. I got bored before page 5, and returned it because I didn't want to read something so boring. Sorry, Hunger Games fans, but I think this book series sucks big-time. Also, don't attack me for not liking Hunger Games.

Truthfully, I read this story before the movie came out and loved it. Iread almost every story in this list (and loved the Haddix books, by the way). But no book can compare to the hunger games series. It had such great suspense and such a sad ending. It showed not every book is going to end hapily, were EVERYONE lives at the end.

The Hunger Games is a fantastic book for reading for fun and as a class book! It is great class book with all of the symbolism and other elements and its also a great book to read for fun! The Hunger Games is must read, action packed book that many readers enjoy!

I read this when I was 13 and I still can't find a better book than The hunger games. It's an adult story for preteens and the greatest one there is. I am reading Catching fire and I'm not done but it looks almost better.

2 The Lost Hero (Rick Riordan)

This was my favorite book in the whole series, I would highly recommend this book.

I just love this book! The suspense, the adventures, you should really read this!

Love it! Best adventure book ever.

This was one of the best books I have ever read and it is really exiting

3 Twilight (Stephenie Meyer)

Really good for teens that like.

4 Among the Hidden (Margaret Peterson Haddix)

I read the whole series and I think this book perfectly demonstrates how harsh the world can be but helps you understand that you have to be yourself and stand up for what you believe in.

Give me chill, it's that good if we just live in inside or outside or both of them...

I've read the whole series! I was introduced to it in the fifth grade by my teached who really loved it

5 The Last Olympian (Rick Riordan)

I just love how everything is described in this book and all the adventures they went on together.

Best book ever

6 Double Identity (Margaret Peterson Haddix)

Thirteen-year-old Bethany, has ALWAYS have had parents that were over protective, but when they suddenly drop out of sight with no explanation, leaving her with an aunt she never knew. A MUST READ! So good

IT IS SO AWESOME! I read it when I was 10 years old and I could not put it down! I read it is a day and I still think about it three years later!

7 Hatchet (Gary Paulsen)
8 New Moon (Stephanie Meyer)

Some people say that New Moon is boring, but I think it's REALLY good.

9 The Lightning Thief (Rick Riordan)

I would highly recommend reading this at a younger age, but I love all the adventures everyone goes on in this book.

10 The House on the Gulf (Margaret Peterson Haddix)

Really good for mystery lovers.

The Contenders
11 Evermore (Alyson Noel)

Really good fantasy book.

12 Stormbreaker (Anthony Horowitz)

I think it is the best Alex Rider adventure that is nothing but cliffhangers and climax. It is a book that kept me going to the library every week.

14 The Maze Runner (James Dashner)
15 Found (Margaret Peterson Haddix)
16 Life as We Knew It (Susan Beth Pfeffer)
17 The Tale of Despereaux (Kate DiCamillo)
