Summer is a great time to catch up on reading new books. I always use this time to think about which new books might be must-haves for the classroom. This week I'm sharing some new middle grade novels that might make good read alouds, great choices for book clubs and great additions to classroom libraries. These are some of my favorite new middle grade must-reads!

Starfish by Lisa Fipps
Quintessence by Jess Redman
When You Trap a Tiger by Tae Keller
The Sea in Winter by Christine Day
What Lane? by Torrey Maldonado
Efrén Divided by Ernessto Cisneros
Before the Ever After by Jacqueline Woodson

This week's books were linked at Cover to Cover Children's Bookstore. If you are looking for a fabulous independent children's bookstore to support, this is an amazing one. We are lucky to have them in Central Ohio!

Happy Reading!
