I had to choose this one especially since I finished it a few days ago. The Mighty Miss Malone is my first Middle Grade read of 2018. Hope it won’t be my last. I can see why its author Christopher Paul Curtis won the Newberry Medal. This was not my first read from Curtis. I read and enjoyed The Watsons Go to Birmingham -1963 a few years ago. Christopher Paul Curtis is an author who writes historical fiction very well for young people. As you know I’m usually not a fan of YA but for some reason Middle Grade just warms my heart. Do you like to read Middle Grade and/or YA if so why and what titles have impressed you the most? Check out the video below of Christopher Paul Curtis talking about his writing and how he got started. It’s inspiring!
