Today I’m reviewing SUPERFAIL by Max Brunner. You can scroll down to read (Also linked via the New Year bell).
What Shall We Read Next? is featuring the classic A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle!
Suzanne Warr is spotlighting Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman.
Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal is reviewing a new book, Oddity by a new author, Sarah Cannon.
Carl at Boys Read Boys Rule! has a timely and fun post—RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT! OUT OF THIS WORLD EDITION 2018 and a second feature on WHO WAS ROBERT RIPLEY?
Completely Full Bookshelf is also pulling one off the classic’s shelf with a review of  A Separate Peace by John Knowles.

Karen Yingling always has great MMGM picks. Be sure to read her review today along with the many other choices she posted the past week.
If you would like to join in the MMGM fun and get your own spot on the walkway, all you have to do is blog about a middle grade book you love on a Monday (contests, author interviews and whatnot also count–but are most definitely not required) and email me the title of the book you’re featuring and a link to your blog at gpcolo (at) gmail (dot) com
(Make sure you put MMGM or Marvelous Middle Grade Monday in the subject line so it gets sorted accurately–and please don’t forget to say what book you’re featuring)
You MUST email me your link by Sunday evening (11 PM Eastern Time) in order to be included in the list of links for the coming Monday.
Thanks for spreading the middle grade love and for being a part of this awesome tradition begun by Shannon Messenger and carried on here at ALWAYS in the MIDDLE!
*Please note: these posts are not a reflection of my own opinions on the books featured. Each blogger is responsible for their own MMGM content and I do not pre-screen reviews ahead of time, nor do I control what books they choose. I simply assemble the list based on the links that are emailed to me.
