from a Kid's Point of View
Written by Gilbert, Age 13 of Massachusetts
For some kids, reading is not at the top of their favorite things to do list. Believe it or not, some kids would rather conduct science experiments, solve math problems, play chess or even play outside participating in sports, riding bikes, scooters, go-carts and skateboards, or just watch TV, play video games and hang out with friends at the beach, arcade or local mall. I, Gilbert, am creating this web page to suggest some books I have read and liked to help kids choose a book for a school book report or summer reading assignment. These books are appropriate for middle school aged kids. Make sure you read the book, don't just watch the movie because sometimes they are different and teachers always know the differences. Also, be sure to complete the book report before you return the book to the library. Most mothers don't like having to drive around to 2 or 3 libraries to find an available copy so you can look something up to finish an assignment that is due tomorrow!
My latest picks, in last read order (Note: books are fiction, unless otherwise stated):
