Hmmmm, I've been thinking a lot about questions like this lately.  This is because I find it disturbing that many five-year-olds are immersed in the teenage world of Hanna Montana.  Therefore, I think teens and up should be reading this book.  It is appropriate for any high school age teenager, and perhaps eighth graders preparing for high school.  Earlier than this, I'm just not sure that children need to be thrust into the world of teenage angst too early.

I am not sure if I would want my ten year old reading this series.  I do agree that they can decode it easily, but it has some "adult" content in it.  The last book is not school appropriate at all, in my honest opinion, and I do not feel comfortable allowing students to read it for independent reading  in my class. 

I think it is a great series and I am thrilled it has kids reading, but because of the content I would say eighth grade and up.

I think that if a student is a good reader and they are interested in reading the series, they should read it. It is difficult to motivate students to read for fun. I think age 10 or older would be appropriate due to the content of the books. I am a first grade teacher with a 17 year old son...If he is interested in something I always encourage him to read about it!

I was in line at Books a Million yesterday. My niece, who claims that she hates to read, begged me to get her the whole Twilight series. Unfortunately, the store was sold out. We finally found a Target that still had them.

You're right.

It is written at a fairly low reading level, about fifth grade. However a fourth grader could probably handle it. And as many mentioned before, adults enjoy it too! My real concern would be in the last book, when there are some slightly more adult themes. I think middle school age is where it would be most appropriate to start reading this series.

Maybe the author thinks that her readers will grow up with the books, that by the time they get to the 5th book they'll be more mature. I've heard so many girls say that these are the first books they've ever read or that they've never read anything bigger than 100 pages. For struggling readers, it may take some time to get through all the books.
