For years, when looking for fiction for my daughter, or books to help her navigate the tumultuous waves of tween friendship, Nancy Rue has been my go-to author. She writes to my girls like the youth group leader I always dreamt would have time to invest in my daughters. She writes as someone intimate with the female tween because she raised one and has worked with these precious mini-women (her endearing term to replace the rather obnoxious tween) for over 30 years. I follow her on Twitter and Facebook and in March and April she had book giveaways. We connected through those giveaways and two weeks ago she sent me a box of books. She signed each one and wrote a special note in two books to my girls. Sometimes, when you have turned to an author again and again and suddenly she is sending you a box of book, you act a little silly, like you touched famous. I know Nancy is a mom, like me, with a gift for writing and understanding tweens. Still, I am beyond excited to bless you, my readers with some of these books from an author who has been so important in helping me raise my girls.
- Fiction series for tween girls
- Review of Moms’ Ultimate Guide to the Tween Girl World
- Teach Your Girl How to Appeal Your No (A Technique from The Buddy Book by Nancy Rue)
- Strategies and Resources for Talking About the Birds and the Bees
