Great Middle School Reads



This is a great website where you can read book reviews written by students all over the country! You can also write and submit your own book review.  It's a fun way to see what other kids are reading and enjoying.



This is a fun source for reviews and recommendations on past, present, and future preteen, teen and young adult books.  You can search for titles by keyword, subject, title or author and read reviews written by kids.

Books for guys. Because guys read!


Huntington Beach Public Library

A place for kids to find information about their favorite books, series, and authors. It also includes reviews of new titles, interviews with authors, trivia games, word scrambles and contests.
