My sister has a delightfully intelligent eight-year-old who can read at a middle-to-high school level, and she always needs new books to read. For my sister, it is complicated by the fact that her daughter is, well, eight. She needs a compelling and interesting story that's also age appropriate. Books written for her age group are too easy for her to read, and ones that are closer to her reading level are not always appropriate. Pretty tough order, huh? Especially with many of today's stories.
But if anyone can help me create a seriously awesome list, it's my writer friends. What are your favorite YA or Middle-Grade books? Feel free to recommend your own books--or your friends'--here too.
Ready, Set, Go!
And thank you, in advance!
