Y’all, she did it again. @erinentrada wrote another masterpiece middle grade that I’m in awe of and in love with. And also… A WISH IN THE DARK is on Orchid Mason’s bookshelf??? I’m so honored. And I love this book. Did I say that already?

A DUET FOR HOME by @karinaisreadingandwriting is one of my favorite middle grade books out this year...This book confronts assumptions we make about families experiencing homelessness, mental illness, and it breaks apart the stereotype of the Asian American “model minority”.

...a story of secrets, allegiances, and betrayals, set at an elite Boston boarding school. It gives me serious SECRET HISTORY vibes and I know middle grade readers are going to gobble it up!

I loved, loved GHOST BOOK by @Remy_Lai! Knowing how much kids crave scary stories, friendship stories, and graphic novels, I have a hunch this one is going to fly off the shelves. It’s also SO beautiful! I think it’s my favorite of Remy’s work so far. ❤️ https://t.co/gjJ4HOZgZy

I loved SET ME FREE so much. If you haven't read SHOW ME A SIGN yet, it's one of my favorite historical MG's. And @annclezotte's follow up novel is just as powerful and exciting! https://t.co/xNzQGJhzV3

I was so lucky that I got to read an early copy of SHINE ON, LUZ VÉLIZ by @r_balcarcel. I ✨✨love✨✨ this MG so much and I know young readers will too! This story has STEM, soccer, sisters, family drama, and Luz is a heroine to cheer for. Put it on your pre-order list! https://t.co/FUrDciRj2h
