Middle School Misadventures That Might Just Lead to Self Discovery!

These fresh middle grade books are just in time for Pride Month and are sure to knock your socks off! 

Tune in for:

  • Gooseberry by ROBIN GOW. After coming out as nonbinary and moving from foster family to foster family, B just wants to know what it would be like to both feel at home and feel like themself. But when they find a stray dog, their dream of being a dog trainer can finally begin! It turns out that training a dog isn’t as easy as B expected, and Gooseberry is as distrustful as B is. How can B teach Gooseberry to trust, when they know so little about trust themself?

  • The Truth About Triangles by MICHAEL LEALI. As Luca struggles to keep his parents together AND save their family's failing pizzeria, he also finds out that his crush, Will, and his best friend June, might be into each other! After cooking up a plan to enter the family business into a restaurant rescue reality show, will this finally be the recipe to keep everything together?

  • Murray Out of Water by TAYLOR TRACY. Twelve-year-old Murray loves the ocean. Every chance she gets, she’s in it. So when a hurricane forces her family to move a state over, she can no longer avoid the truths she’s discovering about herself — like how she feels in the clothes her mom makes her wear. Will she be able to find her true self amidst all this chaos?
