MMGM for April 6, 2020


April Showers bring May Flowers and hopefully better times ahead for our nation and world.

At ALWAYS in the MIDDLE I have CAMP CLIQUE by Eileen Moskowitz-Palma. Click on the Easter bunny to read my post and then do the same for all the other MMGM participants below.

June McCrary Jacobs at Reading, Writing, and Stitch-Metic has a guest post from debut author, Laurie Smollett Kutscera, and an ARC GIVEAWAY of her book, Misadventures of a Magician’s Son.

Natalie Aguirre at Literary Rambles features an interview with debut author Jessica Kim and a GIVEAWAY of her MG contemporary Stand Up, Yumi Chung.

Michelle Mason at Musings of a Young Adult Writer has another post from her 6th grade son. See if he can top his first A+ effort with a review of A WISH IN THE DARK by Christina Soontornvat.

Jenni Enzor returns to the MMGM lineup and gives us her view of RED SCARF GIRL by Ji JI Jang.

COMPLETELY FULL BOOKSHELF has a timely list of six MG books to read when you’re stuck at home!

Patricia Tilton at CHILDREN’S BOOKS HEAL reviews Twist by Sarah Cannon. Readers who like dark humor will love this novel.

Maria Antonia at Of Books, Photography, and Tea gives us a look at The Whipping Boy by Sid Fleischman.

A GARDEN OF BOOKS is back this week with a feature on “The Cat Ninja:  and a Cabal of Shadows” by Eric DeLeo.

Rosi Hollinbeck features a review and GIVEAWAY of THIS BOOK THINKS YOU’RE AN INVENTOR by Jon Milton. Rosi also has some not to be missed links for her writing friends.

Karen Yingling at Ms. Yingling Reads has another fantastic MMGM post. Be sure to check out today’s feature and all of her reviews the past week including BAD BEST FRIEND.

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.
