Recent Canadian Middle Grade Books - 2017

As a committee member for the Red Cedar award - a BC children's choice award for literature - I get to read all books eligible for the award each year, which means all books written for a 9-12-year-old audience in the last year or so by Canadian author. Only 12 titles get picked each year to move on to the next stage, when they get read by children and their parents and teachers across BC and voted on for a winner. But all the selections are worthy of a read - so, enjoy!

This is the Red Cedar longlist from 2017.
