The Winnie Years

Also in The Winnie Years. Eleven and Twelve are also amazing books which are the two books that come before Thirteen. My MS girls love this series, but there is not a lot of literary merit in it.


Walking in and looking up at all of the eighth graders, talking to new people and much thiirteen. Praise The contemporary voice is casual, funny, and well, nice. The whole cat incident at the end blew me away because I had a very, very similar incident with my old best friend and her cat Ace.

Especially since a recent study has shown that schoolchildren who date earliest do worst at school and are more likely to smoke, drink and take drugs? Sep 08, Tiffani Sison rated it really liked it.

Oct 10, Regina rated it it was jyracle. I didn’t find the plot line very compelling or interesting, and never felt sure if Myracle was trying to paint Winnie as a self-absorbed character or a “good” character. It did have some romance in it, but not too much. She doesn’t want to be known as the person who got dumped. Thrteen 03, Lilly rated it it was amazing.

Up Close With Spiders. No it did not. In past years I have savored getting to know Winnie through the challenges of growibg up, even as I went through them myself. I thought that it was more enjoyable.

A thirteen year old with an outgoing personality and a boyfriend named Lars. I recommend that you read absolutely everything by Lauren Myracle. Winnie thinks this is gross and her friend shouldn’t be doing these “over sexual” things at this age.

Remember in the old days when books like Betsy-Tacy and Anne of Green Gables would just keep going and going until their characters grew up, got married, and had kids? My opinion on this book lauuren that it does not match the standards it set for itself.

After schoolduring summer break, Whinie goes off to camp with her friends and has some trouble with Lars.
