I adore middle reader books that not only tell an amazing story but also shine the spotlight on a unique tradition, culture or religion.

Aru Shah and the End of Time is one such diverse middle reader book! AND, if you enjoy books like Percy Jackson or Dasgupta’s Serpent Secret, then this is a series you will also enjoy.
