a youngster between 10 and 12 years of age, considered too old to be a child and too young to be a teenager.
Here's my tween. There was something about this moment that made me want to capture it. Maybe it's because she usually wears her hair in a ponytail and today it was free-flowing, or maybe it was because she was using the laptop, but she looked different to me today. I can't explain it, but when I walked into the living room and saw her lying on the rug, she took my breath away for a split second.
