OCTOBER 2020 MIDDLE GRADE NOVEL BOX

  • Remarkables by Margaret Peterson Haddix. I’ve been a fan of this author for many years. Her nearly 50 novels have been winning awards and exciting young readers since 1995, when her first book, Running Out of Time was published. Her latest book is just out in paperback, and is a great mystery for you to sink your teeth into. A group of teenagers called the Remarkables disappear into thin air! Are they images from the past?
  • Barren Grounds by David A. Robertson is the first book in the Misewa Saga. Described as Narnia meets Indigenous stories of sky and constellations. It takes place in Winnipeg, Manitoba and follows two Indigenous children placed in foster care. In their current home they discover a portal to a frozen barren grounds. They meet Ochek, a talking bear who walks upright on two feet. Ochek is the only hunter for his starving community. The bear teachers the children traditional ways of survival. This award-winning author is a member of the Norway House Cree Nation and lives in Winnipeg. **UPDATE** Barren Grounds went on to be a finalist for the 2020 Governor General's Award.
