Middle School books for kids? Are you searching for books for your 6th, 7th or 8th grader? Here’s a great list from my library.
The 2011 National Book Award Winners for Young Adult (YA) Literature: Chime, My Name is Not Easy, Inside Out and Back Again, Flesh and Blood So Cheap: The Triangle Fire and Its Legacy, Shine, and Okay for Now.
I guess I am a children’s book award junkie. I really love all short lists for awards even more so than the actual award recipient. There is just something so exciting about a short list; anyone can be the winner. This genre: non fiction for young adult is not where I am reading ahead of my eldest yet as she is just eleven, but I am excited to learn about this award and I’m pretty sure that it will fit the bill for one of my kids in the future.
