MMGM for 1-20-2020



As we remember the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr., I have CLEAN GETAWAY by Nic Stone. It’s about a boy and the truths his white grandma reveals during an unscheduled road trip.

Sue Heavenrich at Sally’s Bookshlef is back with us again this week and has a review of Warrior Queens: True Stories of Six Ancient Rebels Who Slayed History.

June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, and Stitch-Metic also returns with a feature on a recent contemporary fiction release by Patricia MacLachlan, My Father’s Words.

COMPLETELY FULL BOOKSHELF recommends Queen of the Sea by Dylan Meconis.

Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea reviews Mo Wren, Lost and Found by Tricia Springstubb.

Alex Baugh at The Children’s War share some thoughts on Anna at War by Helen Peters.

Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL has a perfect winter read, Dog Driven by Terry Lynn Johnson, about a girl losing her vision and participating in a northern Ontario dogsled race.

Mark Baker at Carstairs Considers reviews The Downtown Desperadoes by Sigmund Brouwer.

Rosi Hollinbeck reviews and has a GIVEAWAY of THE SUMMER WE FOUND THE BABY by Amy Hest. 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 and all of her reviews the past week including HOME GAMES.

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.
