The 50 Best Middle-Grade Novels of the Twenty-First Century

Let the mania begin! Today through Friday, April 12, we’ll be unveiling our Books for Youth staff’s selections of this century’s 50 best middle-grade novels for modern libraries. Each day, two to three titles (appearing in alphabetical order by author last name) will be revealed at both @ALA_Booklist (Twitter) and @Booklist (Facebook). Which books will be announced today? Follow us to find out!

And the excitement doesn’t end there. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for our April 15 issue, where the Middle-Grade Mania only continues! Each issue will come complete with a snazzy poster, top 10s galore, and a special middle-grade-themed issue of Book Links. For those with a hankering for even more middle grade, we’ll also be hosting two webinars come April, featuring exclusive author interviews and forthcoming titles from sponsors Abrams, Bloomsbury, Disney, Holiday House, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, Macmillan, Penguin, Random House, Simon & Schuster.

Last but not least, it wouldn’t be a best-of list without some hearty debate, so please feel free to sound off in the comments! We can’t wait to hear from you.
