Why I Created this Group

When the first Harry Potter came out, children's literature wasn't a big money maker. So no one really cared much what you called the genre and how wide-ranging it was. Things have taken a wild turn since.

Inspired by the Harry Potter series, I wrote a high concept fantasy that starts in the same age group as Harry was way back in book 1. But, like Harry Potter, my novel isn't exactly YA and it isn't young children's fiction either.

So for that in-between reader group, here's a place to share your passion! I hope you'll join me with your favorite middle grade stories.

Love multicultural stories? You'll probably love to read Courtney's experience in Saudi Arabia, a fascinating middle grade novel that has stayed in Amazon's top 100 "Prejudice & Racism" for three consecutive weeks. Read the blurb, an excerpt and reviews here: http://www.freado.com/book/19700/girl-of-the-book#GoodReads

This week, I'm featuring a cozy wintry read about an awkwardly tall 12-year-old moving to her father's childhood town and picking up her life from there. She meets new friends and foes, and together they solve a mystery  which started off from her family bookstore.
