The books I read and loved as a middle schooler — A Wrinkle in Time, Where the Red Fern Grows, anything by Judy Blume — are still widely circulated today. As I prepare to begin the school year, I am thinking about middle grades reading. Particularly, I am thinking about the books I haven’t yet read. The other day, I feverishly downloaded four new titles to my kindle:
The Ethan I Was Before
I am really excited about all of them, but Tuck Everlasting is most enticing and I started reading it right away. Next, I think I’ll go for The Ethan I Was Before. I’m curious about it since I haven’t heard as much about the story. The Giver is a modern classic which everyone seems to love and cherish, and Esperanza Rising keeps turning up on everyone’s lists. So, why not? I’m looking forward to some good reading!
