Winnie is caught in the middle of everything and nothing at the same time. She starts to wonder if she really does want to be a teenager after all. Life at eleven and twelve was complicated, but nothing compares to her life now!
Even if you haven't read the other books in Myracle's series, you can still enjoy Thirteen. It's great for teen girls and even good for those that are still in the "tween" stages. Enough fluff to satisfy the girliest of girls (makeup, dresses, boys) and enough substance to make it a great, humorous story (home life, problems). I laughed out loud several times while reading and am wondering if a Fourteen is in the works.
