Best Books for Middle Schoolers: From Our Wonderful Middle School Librarian!

Best Books for Middle School Kids

My oldest daughter is lucky in that she has the best Middle School librarian who really cares about finding books that make kids excited to read. He posted this list on our school eNewsletter which is how I found it. I think that by Middle School, students pretty have a good sense of the types of chapter books that they like to read so his list, by genre, is particularly helpful.
