These next two books absolutely made my list! Check them out.
THE BRILLIANT FALL OF GIANNA Z. by Kate Messner
What a classic middle grade. I first bought it after hearing Kate speak at the New England SCBWI. This book won the E.B. White read aloud award and I’m not surprised. Excellent writing and storytelling with a moving ending.
HAPENNY MAGICK by Jennifer Carson
I’ve read this story. I’ve critiqued this story. But I can’t wait to read it again, not on my computer or on my Kindle, but holding a book. It’s out folks! Another classic middle grade story filled with heart, humor, and a terrific climax! Watch out for trolls!
