    Hi everyone - I have been asked to create stickies for threads with lists of book recommendations gathered from member posts for different age ranges (0-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12, 13+). Here is the thread for the 9-12 age range.

    Ooh, reminded on another thread. My DD10 read Out of My Mind by Sharon Draper last year and absolutely could not put it down. It was really, really good. She also really liked The Wednesday Wars by Gary Schmidt this year.
