Armchair BEA Day 5: Middle Grade/Young Adult

Today’s Prompt

Our final genre of discussion is one that we know is a popular one these days: books for the younger crowd, from middle grade to young adult. If you do not normally talk about this genre on your site, maybe you want to feature books that you remember impacting you during this stage in your life. If this is where you tend to gravitate, maybe you want to list your favorites, make recommendations based on genres, or feature some titles that you are excited to read coming later this year. 

For today’s post, I want to feature a couple of young adult books I really enjoyed and which I hope can find an even larger audience than they already have.  Below are some graphics featuring the book covers and a brief excerpt from my original reviews posted on the blog.

    “Control” sounds interesting. I prefer more science in SF than fantasy. And I love stuff with genetics because it’s so now. Thanks.
