This episode is our THIRD installment of a series covering the Summer Scares library summer reading program. The Horror Writers’ Association has partnered with Book Riot and Library Journal to curate the Summer Scares reading list, which includes three books each in the Adult, YA, and Middle Grade categories. We have already discussed the Adult selections in episode 32, and the YA selections in episode 34. Joining us today to talk about the middle grade selections is Kiera Parrott, a reviews director at Library Journal and School Library Journal.

The middle grade picks for the 2019 Summer Scares program are:

Doll Bones by Holly Black (Margaret K. McElderry Books, 2015)

Through the Woods by Emily Carroll (Margaret K. McElderry Books, 2014)

The Jumbies by Tracey Baptiste (Algonquin Young Readers, 2016)
