This Pride Month sampler includes generous excerpts from six books that are geared to middle school readers. These titles will be welcomed by children and their adults. They reflect many kinds of kids and families.
As an example, “different kinds of fruit” is about a sixth grader, her father and a new student who comes to the school. The Lock Eater is a fantasy about an orphan. The other included books are “Pride,” “The Visitors,” “Too Bright to See” and, “The Best Man.”
Many adults recall how important books were to them when they were growing up, especially if they were feeling alone or different. Finding a book whose characters related to them often made a huge difference. In that way, many will find something terrific in these titles.
These are books that belong in home and on library shelves. Many thanks to NetGalley and Penguin Group for this title. All opinions are my own.
