Summer Reads for Strong Girls (and Boys too!)

June 16, 2013

If you have daughters who’ve read Pippi and Clementine and need more summer adventures starring strong girls, suggest they try a few of the following middle grade novels:


Destiny, Rewritten

Mighty Miss Malone

The Goose Girl




Hunger Games

A Summer of Sundays (releasing July 9)

I really don’t like to turn books into a boy girl thing, so in addition to the above, both genders might like these books with boy characters:

The Graveyard Book

Maniac Magee

Rich Riordan series

Al Capone Does my Shirts



Peter and the Shadow Thieves

The Five Ancestors Series

The Maze Runner
