#NYTimes #BestSelling Author Jen Calonita is on the #ReadingWithYourKids #Podcast to celebrate her new #MiddleGrade #Novel 12 to 22. Jen tells us in this smart and funny modern day 13 Going on 30 a tween girl finds out it is like to be 22 when she jumps in time with the help of a mysterious TikTok filter. Turning 12 1/2 shouldn’t be the most exciting birthday in the world. It’s a half birthday after all. But Harper is thrilled because she is getting the biggest gift of all: her parent’s approval to finally get on social media.
Except when she goes to post her first photo, there is a filter she has never heard of before. One that shows you what you will look like when you are older. Curious, Harper clicks on it…but ends up flash forwarding in time to when she is 22! Jedlie& Jen also talk about how we can talk to our kids about using social media responsibly and safely.
