I love middle grade, but more often than not I find myself gravitating to the Young Adult section. There are just such fantastic choices available over there these days! Here are some of my all-time favorites.
Opening line: “Mrs. Rachel Lynde lived just where the Avonlea main road dipped down into a little hollow, fringed with alders and ladies’ eardrops and traversed by a brook that had its source away back in the woods of the old Cuthbert place.”
Opening line: “Being a court dwarf is no easy task. I know because I failed at it.”
Opening line: “I AM A COWARD I wanted to be heroic and I pretended I was. I have always been good at pretending.”
Opening line: “I’ve confessed to everything and I’d like to be hanged. Now, if you please.”
Opening line: “First the colors. Then the humans. That’s usually how I see things. Or at least, how I try.”
Opening line: “I write this sitting in the kitchen sink.”
We try to always have copies of these books on our shelves! Come by and check them out sometime!
Read on, readers!
