So, I was doing my Recycle Bookstore thing this morning, and I met Kate. Kate is 13 years old and quite obviously an avid reader (my favorite kind!). Kate appears to have a handle on middle grade/young adult novels. Even though I’m getting recommendations for middle-grade/young adult books from some of my fellow bloggers, THEY ARE NOT 13! I’d rather go directly to the source. Without further ado, here, then, are 4 novels highly recommended by Kate:
Out of My Mind, by Sharon Draper
Wonder, by R.J. Palacio
Firegirl, by Tony Abbott
Zink, by Cherie Bennett
I’m assuming that all of my readers are “of a certain age,” (i.e. adult and up). If that is true, then it will be up to you “adults” to pass these recommendations on to the correct readers. And if that happens, please let me know their reaction. If the targeted age group agrees with Kate, then I will rely on Kate more heavily in future posts.
P.S. Kate is considering starting a blog for middle grade/young adult readers. I say YES wholeheartedly to that idea.
P.P.S. Thanks to Kate's mom for picking up 3 of my recommendations from The Table. I will be anxiously awaiting your feedback.
