As the year wraps up, I thought it would be fun to look ahead at the coming year of middle grade. Here are just a few of the middle grade books I'm looking forward to in 2014.
Ok, full disclosure, Natalie is a friend of mine I can't wait to read her debut!
Holly is a local author who is making her middle grade debut and I'm so excited she's writing for a younger audience this time around!
This book has a comparison to From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler-I'm sold!
And this one is being compared to The Boxcar Children. It's a perfect year for nine-year-old Sarah!
A first daughter finds the diary of Alice Roosevelt-could only be fun!
I can't wait to see what happens to Nate-my favorite aspiring Broadway star!
Father son detectives and a book that causes readers to commit crimes-sounds like a blast!
An intergalactic tale told from the point of view of an alien just seems like a wonderfully hilarious premise.
A 1930s mystery with a talking cat? Yes please!
An adventure to save his dad set in a video game-sounds awesome!
And there's no cover yet, but The Ninja Librarians by Jennifer Downey sounds like a lot of fun!
What books are you looking forward to reading in 2014?
