Summer 2021 Middle Grade Books We Can't Wait To ReadBy: Shanleigh Klassen
“One summer morning at sunrise a long time ago
I met a little girl with a book under her arm.
I asked her why she was out so early and
she answered that there were too many books and
far too little time. And there she was absolutely right.”
― Tove Jansson
