Good Reads for Middle Schoolers

If you are a mother of a middle-schooler, finding books that interest them that have actual words and not just pictures can be a chore!

In order to help your efforts, we have searched high and low and found some great books for middle and even junior high school boys. I have set hyperlinks to Amazon with each title which would allow for easy ordering for a holiday or event. You can also have you child check the school or local library if they have a reading requirement that is free choice book pick. I am also a fan of rainy day Barnes and Noble trips.
