Top Ten Novels in Verse by Katie Strawser

This post made my entire to-read list and introduced me to a new genre-novels in verse. One way I struggled to connect with my kids was through the generation…they are visual and real time and diverse. They move faster and can handle more but sit less. How can you make books relevant to today’s children? These novels seem to answer that question.

Katherine Applegate is featured here two times, we love her Animorph series, it is a super well done middle grade series. Kind of a dark horse, it’s out of print but you can get copies used or as e-books. This series has hooked many a wimpy kid fan on reading. Very well done and obviously she has talent to spare. Load up your library hold list or your e-reader.
