Don’t miss Middle-grade Adventure!

I won’t deny it — I’m biased when it comes to picking books. But it’s not my fault. The fun and the adventurous call out to me and distract me, so I pick them as my favorites. Oops, that means I miss some of those books that other people think are great. Alas, can’t get ‘em all! If you have a favorite book that you think should be in this category, make a comment and let’s see what others think!

For now…

Today’s top-ten list!
Middle-grade adventure authors you don’t want to miss:
