As I mentioned previously, the "So You Want to Read YA" series at Stacked inspired Sarah at GreenBeanTeenQueen blog to start a similar "So You Want to Read Middle Grade" series. Sarah kindly asked me to participate, and my post is up today. My baker's dozen of recommendations ranges from The Giver to The Penderwicks, with lots of great middle grade reads for kids and adults (male and female) in between.
If you are interested in middle grade literature, I hope that you'll check out the post. You can also find other entries from Abby Johnson (Abby the Librarian), Jana from Milk and Cookies, and Holly Schindler, with lots more to come.
