Historical Fiction Haters

This is truly the golden age of #Kidlit. I've been reading, reading, reading and have encountered so many wonderful books so far this year. I'd love to say there isn't a genre or book I don't love. But that isn't the case... As a kid, I loved historical fiction books. Number the Stars, North to Freedom, Catherine Called Birdy, The Midwife's Apprentice, Summer of my German Solider. I read and reread many of these titles. However, as historical fiction began to become "required" reading, I grew away from the genre. In fact, I would avoid it like the plague! 

Sadly, even as an adult, I've pretty much avoided the genre of historical fiction. Which is surprising since I LOVE history and also teach social studies. I just felt like this wasn't a genre for me. But boy was I wrong! There are several great books out right now that help engage students (and adults) with historical fiction! All of these books are approachable because of their fantastic stories, thus, the historical aspect is something you experience along with the character not a history textbook you have drag along and decode.

Through reading many of these newer novels, I've rediscovered my love for historical fiction. I just can't get enough! I've also found myself doing extra research on various topics because I'm interested in the history as well. I've also noticed, that I'm still fascinated by WWII just like I was back in third grade reading Number the Stars or in seventh grade reading Summer of my German Solider.

Here are a few books that every middle grade library needs to have for the historical fiction lover or hater... 







What historical fiction titles would you recommend?
