When my middle school students come to the library each week, I like to pick their brains and see what they're actually reading for fun these days. It helps me keep up with what I need to have in the library collection and what I should be reading. Here's a sampling from some enthusiastic 6th grade readers...
- The Name of This Book Is Secret by Pseudonymous Bosch
- The Amulet Series by Kazu Kibuishi
- Satchel Paige: Striking Out Jim Crow by James Sturm
- Secret School by Avi
- All the Lovely Bad Ones by Mary Downing Hahn
- Other Side of the Island by Allegra Goodman
- Kin (The Good Neighbors series) by Holly Black
