JULY 2020 MIDDLE GRADE NOVEL BOX

  • Half Past Peculiar Finders Creepers by Derek Fridolfs and Dustin Nguyen. This book has it all. Part novel, part comic and an old house with a portal to another world!  Find out what these twins encounter when they search for lost pets! (hardcover)
  • You Don’t Know Everything, Jilly P! Alex Gino is a writer who doesn’t shy away from difficult subjects, but their books are perfectly geared for the 8-12 year old crowd. Their first book George (reviewed on our website blog) about a transgender girl, was described by Publishers Weekly, as "a required purchase for any collection that serves a middle grade population."  This latest critically acclaimed book just out in paperback, is about current social justice issues. Jilly is a white pre-teen. When her sister is born deaf, she learns that she will be treated differently than her sister. She also learns that she will be treated differently than her friend Derrik who is deaf and black. Sometimes Jilly doesn’t say the right thing, but it is all a learning experience and as her black aunt says, it’s important to “keep talking and keep asking questions.” (paperback)
