Middle Grade: Recommended Titles

Middle Grade is the term for chapter books that can be enjoyed by kids aged 9-14 years in age. These are titles that have more challenging text complexity, usually feature main characters that are in middle school themselves, and have a higher page count than their lower grade counterparts.
