MMGM for August 12, 2019


I’ve always been in the middle as a son, educator, and writer. I’m glad there’s a day to celebrate. Happy Middle Child Day! At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have a review of SOLVING FOR M by Jennifer Swender.

Alex Baugh at Randomly Reading features a review of The Boy At the Back of the Class by Onjali Q. Raúl.

Beth Mitchell at Imaginary Friends reviews Merci Suarez Changes Gears by Meg Medina.

Patricia Tilton at Children’s Books Heal reviews Emily Out of Focus by Miriam Spitzer Franklin, about a family traveling to China to adopt a baby.

Completely Full Bookshelf recommends Just Jaime by Terri Libenson.

Rosi Hollinbeck reviews THE TRUE HISTORY OF LYNDIE B. HAWKINS by Gail Shepherd. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads has another informative MMGM post. Be sure to check out today’s feature.

If you would like to join in the MMGM fun and get your own spot in the parade, 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! (CLICK HERE FOR PAST MMGM POSTS)
*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.
