Books for Middle School

These are my impressions of some of the things I know teens are (or should be!) reading. I am just telling you what I think, it is not necessariy an endorsement. If you don't think your parents will approve of the content, THEN DON'T READ IT! (And don't tell them I said you should read it!) Click on the title of the book to read my thoughts about that book.

On 1/1/14, I changed this so that it is now sorted aphabetically instead of by when I read it and wrote the reviews. This will make it easier in some ways, but it also means that there might be reviews that have sequels or movies and I haven't updated it. I will include the date of my newest posts. I will leave my newest posts at the top for a little while, then move them.
