Favorite Books for Middle School Kids from actual Middle School Students (with a few from their teachers and parents).
This is what I was thinking when I came up with this kooky list:
-Summer read, preferably on the beach or on vacation
-Has to be a good read but not too strenuous
-The book is about the summer and/or beach and/or beachy vacation vibe
-A great lead GIRL character
-Counts towards summer homework book assignment but was thoroughly enjoyable
For incoming grades 4-6
Top 100: Children’s Novels from School Library Journal, grades 3-8th, for 2010. Great classics that have stood the test of time plus newly released Newbery award winners.
