I lead an IRL book club for fellow parents and friends wanting to read more middle grade books! Each month I select 3 middle grade (MG) books (sometimes throw in a few young adult-YA) based on a theme. Members pick one, two, or all three to read. I thought some of you might want to join in! This month's theme is Bullying; the 3 books are shown above (2 middle grade, 1 YA). If you read along with us, just tag me and the event #MGBookWhisperer

Wolf Hollow features a girl who befriends a reclusive WWI veteran who is misunderstood in his community.
War Stories takes a boy and his great-grandfather back to France to be honored for his heroism, but the memories aren't all good. Deftly exposes the reality and grey areas of war.
The Unsung Hero of Birdsong, USA contrasts a celebrated white veteran and an unsung black veteran. Gently tells a story of injustice.

Halloween has past, so Christmas books are fair game, right? This story is one big crazy magical adventure of a boy searching for his toy. The talking toys give major Toy Story vibes. Lots of feels- starts off sad, several scares along the way(on the same level as most Disney movies), but in the end love conquers all.

#MGbookwhisperer #boardingschool
Of these 3 boarding school books, Mystwick School of Music took the cake! It had great world building and magic based on music!
Mystwick and Black Hollow Lane shared the classic boarding school elements of a mysteriously missing parent, the enemy roommate, and a few faithful friends to aid in the quest! Either would be great for fans of Harry Potter.
Midnight for Charlie Bone was just so-so.
