So, here’s a short list of middle grade and YA fiction that recently caught my eye. They have been crowding my nightstand for months, and I can now say that they are worth checking out. The only reason I am not giving synopses at the moment is because I am dead tired and attempting to rest up before this weekend. Happy exploring!

The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick

The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart, Illustrations by Carson Ellis

The Fairy Tale Detectives (The Sisters Grimm, Book 1) by Michael Buckley

The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan

Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins

And I also want to give a big shout out to my McCallum High School buddy Greg Foley who has done such an amazing job with his two picture books which he wrote and illustrated:

Thank You Bear and Don’t Worry Bear

Go, Greg.
