Hey everyone, it’s Sarah!
I haven’t had a chance to finish any middle grade novels recently, I am still catching up on last year’s Printz. I have several books I have waiting for me to finish that are strong contenders on my watch list.
Amber & Clay by Laura Amy Schlitz
Set in Ancient Greece, a pair of strangers find a soul level connection. Rhaskos, a slave, and Melisto, an unhappy aristocrat, will team up for this adventure. It appears that this novel uses a variety of writing forms to present the story.
The One Thing You’d Save by Linda Sue Park
If your house was on fire what is the one thing you would save? This is the question posed to the characters in this book. The answers will bring out all the emotions and may even surprise you.
The Lion of Mars by Jennifer L Holm
Bell is just a regular kid, except he lives on Mars. When a virus threatens his home, Bell and his friends will need to uncover secret truths to save the colony.
What is on your watch list?
