2014 Middle Grade Fiction Nerdies

If you were to peek inside my house and classroom and see the piles of books in my to-read stacks you find that most of the books are middle grade fiction. 2013 was a wonderful year for middle grade fiction, and I’m excited to announce to the winners of the 2014 Nerdy Book Club middle grade fiction Nerdies.
