This has been a banner year for Middle Grade novels!
As I looked back over all the books I read this year, I realized that I learned so much from the stories that made my reading life so wonderful!
Diversity Changes Everything
The books I read by diverse authors entertained me, enlightened me, and energized me. Want to build a better world? Read something from a completely different point of view!
Some books that did that for me this year:
The best stories are ones when you realize someone else is going through stuff, too.
Take me on adventures to places and worlds I've never been.
Victorian England, the South, a neglected churchyard in Harlem, a world of privateers, the Scottish highlands.
That laughter really is in the best medicine...
Just when I think middle grade literature can't get any better, I read another book and am blown away.
Thank you to the authors of these books and all the other middle grade books I read in 2018. I can't wait to see what 2019 brings!!!!
