I didn't read nearly as many books as I had hoped I would this year, but I still read a lot! If you missed my Favorite Picture Books of 2011 post, check it out, and YA and Adult faves will be featured next week.
I really loved all of these...they're in no particular order:
Wonderstruck by Brian Selznick
Breadcrumbs by Anne Ursu
The Penderwicks at Point Mouette by Jeanne Birdsall
Lions of Little Rock by Kristin Levine (review to come in January)
Bless This Mouse by Lois Lowry
What are some of your favorite middle grade reads this year?
