First look at Scholastic's Fall 2017 middle grade and YA titles (plus a giveaway!)

Last week, you heard all about upcoming Picture Books and Chapter Books in our Fall 2017 Online Preview.

This week, though, is all about middle grade and YA books!

And we are EXCITED! If you believe, as we do, that books are a gateway for us to learn about both ourselves and our world, the Scholastic Middle Grade and YA Fall 2017 lists do just that!

Whether it’s the plight of three children at different points in history seeking refuge in new homes or a girl who finds an outlet for her inner struggles in rock 'n' roll or sisters who are just trying to fit in at a new school, the stories presented are sometimes poignant, sometimes hysterical, but 100% relatable!

I’ll leave it to you to explore what book you would most like to read (and, of course, hope you’ll enter the contest to win an advance copy – see the end of the post!)

Here they are:




But the fun doesn’t end with the videos!
