Ok–I know I’m late in posting (it’s this whole school gig) but I am so excited about today’s topic. It’s another little bit of help to break you out of your reading box! In fact, I wish I had had this made at the beginning of the month so I could have explored MORE MG sci-fi.

That’s righ!l–I have another guide for you! I hoping you enjoyed my fantasy field guides so much, that you’ll pair them up with this one! I’ve decided someday I have to figure out how to print this out in giant form,and then laminate it because it is totally going up in my classroom. Once again, it doesn’t list every middle grade sci-fi out there, just the ones I ran across that I thought might be interesting for younger readers!
Without further adieu,  I give you–The Hopeful Heroine’s Field Guide to MG Science-Fiction!!
