Great Summer Reads for Middle Schoolers

By now your tween is more than familiar with the Scholastic Summer Reading Challenge. As it kicks off again today, encourage your tween to set the biggest reading goals she can dream of — and then blow those out of the water.

There are plenty of book lists on our site that can help — this list of summer reads for your middle schooler is the perfect place to start.
