Top Middle School Must-Reads ( books)This is the fourth year that my students have gathered what they deem the very best books that they read this year and shared their recommendations with the world. As always we have favorites that seem to pop up every year, but this year we also had a lot of new titles join the mix. Some of these are fine for all 7th graders, some are more mature, I am including them all so that you can make your own decision. All parents are informed of the range of books that are present in our classroom library so that students can choose something that speaks to them. Not all of these books are in my library but are books that the students have found and read independently.

With homework and assigned reading on hold until fall, summer is the perfect opportunity for your middle schooler to dive into page-turners that pique her unique interests. Luckily, there are many titles written just for this age range that represent a wide range of genres and meaningful story themes. These 12 books are all hand-picked for your middle schooler from the Scholastic Read-a-Palooza Summer Reading Challenge , a free, fun educational program. During this Challenge, kids enter reading minutes to earn exclusive digital rewards and help donate books to kids in need across the country. Ask your middle schooler if any of her teachers are participating — doing the Challenge as a class is a powerful motivator. If not, kids can register separately and enjoy these incredible reads on their own time. Because of the Rabbit by Cynthia Lord.
