Favorite Books

My favorite middle grade books* read (not necessarily published) in 2008.

Some of these are all about the writing.
Some of them are all about the story.
And some of them are all about both.

Alvin Ho Allergic to Girls, School and Other Scary Things
by Lenore Look

The Broken Bike Boy and the Queen of 33rd Street
by Sharon Flake

by Laurie Halse Anderson

The Goose Girl
by Shannon Hale

Jessie's Mountain
by Kerry Madden

Moxy Maxwell Does Not Love Writing Thank-You Notes
by Peggy Gifford

There's a Boy in the Girls' Bathroom
by Louis Sachar

The Underneath
by Kathi Appelt

*I actually consider Chains to be YA, but I think the rest of the world considers it middle gradish? I'd rather see it win the Printz than the Newbery. But that's just me.

I've added these to my hold list at the library.

Can't wait to pick them up.
