The long yearned age of 12 for Rory comes with many new freedoms, according to her parents. When she finally turns 12, she can’t wait to take advantage of everything she wasn’t allowed to do before, like get a cellphone and a pet. But being 12 isn’t as good as it seems, something Rory finds out a tad too soon. Wendy Mass gives us a immensely realistic and funny reminder of what it was like to be a tween. Overall, Finally by Wendy Mass is a hilarious, honest, and amusing book that is 100% worth the read. @WordfulReviews of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Finally by Wendy Mass is such an amazing book that conveys an incredibly important message to young teens about not trying to grow up too fast. This novel follows the story of Rory, a young teen who is just so excited to finally be able to do grown up things like get her ears pierced, shave her legs, get a cellphone, etc. But she soon realizes that it’s really not as fabulous as she thought it would be. This book is a real page-turner, as it is funny, witty, and extremely relatable. I would rate it 5/5 stars.
