12 To 22 by Jen Calonita

Jen Calonita remaking 13 going on 30? There was no way I wasn’t going to read this and it met every single expectation!

12 to 22 is a super cute story of how being true to yourself is worth way more than likes on social media or being friends with the popular kids.

Jen Calonita makes this tween novel very current, heavily peppering her story with social media, influencers, trending restaurants and all the things that a 12 1/2 year old in 2022 cares about. The use of the tik tok filter transforming the MC Harper into the future is a great twist!

I also loved the imaginative future tech and how Harper has to lean on her baby sister to make her way in this weird new world.

Thankfully, even when she travelled through time, Harper didn’t lose her moral compass. If I had a tween daughter I would definitely buy her this book.
