Hello! My name is Alisha and I’m the self-described “middle grade expert.” If you are looking for suggestions that would be appropriate for ages 8-12: I’m your librarian! There really isn’t one genre that I specialize in. I like them all! Fantasy, sci-fi, mystery, funny, you name it! I can also make recommendations for younger children, teens, and adults but MG (middle grade) is where I shine.

Request recommendations from Alisha.
