Top Ten Tuesday is a Meme hosted by The Broke and the Bookish This week's Top Ten Tuesday is going to be my Top Six ALL TIME Favorite Realistic MG Fiction Books
I know, you're probably surprised that I went with realistic fiction instead of fantasy. I do like my fantasy, a lot. This week, I went with something different.
1. Ms. Bixby's Last Day by John David Anderson
This is one of my favorite books so far this year. I love the way the stories alternates between each of the boys, Ms. Bixby, how they try to give her the best last day party. The way that Ms. Bixby
touches each of these boys lives, and the friendship that these boys share. I'm holding out hope for another story with Topher, Brand and Steve!
2. All Four Stars by Tara Dairman
I've always loved Gladys passion for cooking and will never forget reading the" creme brulee incident" for the first time. This whole series has such wonderful references to foods and is one of the first books to make me really hungry while reading it.
3. The 14 Fibs of Gregory K by Greg Pincus
Greg desperately wants to go to Author Camp, but is failing math. In a family of math geniuses, this just won't do. I really fun story that centers around the Fibonacci Sequence and the importance of math in our daily lives.
4. Fish In A Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt
An uplifting story about Ally's struggles with dyslexia. Favorite line: "Everyone is smart in different ways. But if you judge a fish on its ability to climb a tree, it will spend its whole life thinking it's stupid."
5. Ice Dogs by Terry Lynn Johnson A riveting survival story of two kids who get lost in the backcountry of Alaska during a horrible storm. They must find a way to get back to safety before hypothermia sets in.
6. Hope Is A Ferris Wheel by Robin Herrera
I loved this mostly because Star reminded me of one of my relatives. Wonderful story that includes an Emily Dickinson club and poems and metaphors and writing vocabulary words. Such fun.
Have you read any of these? Any other MG Realistic Fiction to suggest. Feel free to leave me your TTT links in the comments.
