 Strap In for these Exciting Middle Grade Tales!

What do summer camp, a haunted motel, a half-marathon, and a senior citizens community all have in common? They're the special (and spooky) backgrounds for these great reads! 

Join us in-store for:

  • Keeping Pace by LAURIE MORRISON. After years of overachieving to beat her ex-friend Jonah's GPA, and failing, Grace is adrift, with no more goals. But when she decides to enter a half-marathon and starts training with Jonah, she starts to question what — and who — really matters to her. Is winning at all costs really worth it?

  • Winnie Nash is Not Your Sunshine by NICOLE MELLEBY. Sent to live with her grandma for the summer while her mom takes care of her health during her latest pregnancy, Winnie is bored out of her mind. Then she meets Pippa, a really cute girl who hangs out with the senior citizens. The problem is, Winnie's mom asked her not to tell Grandma that she's gay, making her plans to go to NYC Pride (and her crush) that much more complicated.

  • The Lumbering Giants of Windy Pines by MO NETZ. For years, Jerry and her mom have bounced around dead-end towns, staying in rundown motels where her mother picks up housekeeping work and Jerry can get around in her wheelchair. Then one morning Jerry's mom doesn't return from a secret job, and it's up to Jerry and her newfound friends to find her. But when Jerry discovers her mom's hidden secret, the rescue mission becomes even more haunting!

  • Miscommunicamp! by STEPH KATZOVINoodle is ready for this to be the best summer ever. But when her bestfriend Aries only wants to work on the camp play rather than help Noodle with her radio show like they talked about, things start to turn a little sour and Noodle doesn't quite know how to deal with it. Will she be able to salvage her spectacular summer plans before camp comes to an end?
