It can be hard to find books that a middle schooler enjoys. Particularly if you have MY middle schooler. When he was younger, my oldest enjoyed all sorts of books. Now that he’s 13, he is far more critical. He is tired of all the “little kids” books that promote things like “morals.” He gets annoyed when he finds characters to be unrealistically sweet or joyful. This list may expand when my daughter enters middle school next year, but for now, you will find on this list mostly books filled with adventure and humor.
