    My 9 yo loves all the Poppy books by Avi. She has also loved the Dark is Rising Series, the Wingfeather Saga series, Wonderstruck, the Invention of Hugo Cabret, and Percy Jackson series as well. My 11 yo has loved the League of Very Nearly Honorable Pirates series–funny and adventurous. I am going to wait until 8th grade for The Giver, but it is one of my very favorites. I love the other 3 books that complete the series. One of my other favorites for middle school girls is The Friendship Doll and second favorite is Flipped (7th or 8th grade). One new book that I came upon this year that I really love is Paper Things–it tackles homelessness in a way that is helpful. The characters are flawed, but both adults and the teenager + 10 yo realize what they know and don’t know–and come to admit their mistakes. There is a beautiful scene of reconciliation at the end of the book. Thanks for posting your list. I’m always looking for solid book suggestions for my house of voracious readers!!
