Lydia Yes! I have lots and lots of recommendations! Do you still have The Book Whisperer? Check out pg. 194 for Miller's "Ultimate Library List" she's divided it into genre. It's a great place to start. If you don't still have the text, I can PDF it and send it to you. Let me know.

Off the top of my head:
-Anything by Andrew Clements (ex. Frindle, School Story)
-Anything by E.L. Konigsburg (ex. The View from Saturday)
-Anything by Gary Paulsen (especially for BOYS) (ex. Hatchet)
-All things Jerry Spinelli (Star Girl is one of my favorites EVER!)
-All things Cornelia Funke (ex. The Thief Lord)
-All things Rick Riordan (ex. The Lightening Thief)
-The Hunger Games series by Suzanne Collins
-All things Pam Munoz Ryan (ex. Esperanza Rising)
-All things Lois Lowery (ex. The Giver)
-All things Jane Yolen (she has written a ton of picture books too, so look for her chapter books (ex. Here There Be Dragons))

Hope this is a good jumping off point.

Jamie Hi Lydia! I was wondering if you have any recommendations for 4th graders! I'm stuck. Just all types of chapter books really. They have a variety of interests. I'm not sure where to start looking! We all miss you this semester! Thanks!

Leigh Hey Girl! So glad you introduced me to this . . . I think your choice of books is a little more impressive than mine!! :)
Let's get together soon . .

Lindsay Hi Lyd, How fun is this? Let's try to start reading the same books at the same time--especially since you have all the time in the world to read :-) Love, Fred
