I am writing a novel for pre-teens because I believe it suits my writing style. My problem/concern is do I need to simplify my words to suit pre-teens? Because I have no pre-teens in my life I find I have no one to ask, so I thought I would send the question out there, into the cyber world of this forum and ask whose who are pre-teens or teenagers or remember the type of books they were able reading at that age to help. I am using words like; miraculously, Infuriated, trepidation, methodical, accumulation and grotesque. Are these words too complicated for the range range I am aiming at? Would pre-teens understand the meaning of these words, or would these words put them off from read on. Thank you for your help.
