I would love some suggestions for popular titles or authors for middle school kids. Mainly, I am looking for for fiction books surrounding these three topics:
1- African-American culture (like Bluford High books or works by Sharon Draper, Jaqueline Woodson, and W.D. Myers)
2- Humorous tales (like Diary of a Wimpy Kid)
3- Friendship/Romance (like the Clique series)
I've got some avid readers who are hungry for new titles!
