Sharon Draper. Angie Thomas. Jason Alexander. Bluford High. I have to head out but I will share a link I found. Also, I’m thinking of starting a book swapping document. Let me know if you are interested in learning about it

My kids always love the Percy Jackson series et all and the diary of a wimpy kid books. Last year they were all fawning over the Amulet graphic novel series.

My kids always love The Outsiders, The Shadow Children series and the Missing series-or anything else by Margaret Peterson Haddix, Laurie Halse Anderson, Rick Riordan's Kane Chronicles, and Wendy Leighton-Porter's Shadows of the past series. If this isn't enough to get you started, I hope your school librarian is as excellent of a resource as mine is.
