25 of the best new middle grade novels

These titles are the very best of new middle grade novels released so far this year.

10. 'The Riverman, Book 1 of the Riverman Trilogy,' by Aaron Starmer

of

"The Riverman" is a delightful and surprising first installment of a new trilogy that should have broad appeal. This novel has humor, action, emotion, and an eerie, unsettling premise that is never quite absent from the reader’s mind. Things that matter are at stake. This book takes itself seriously in exactly the right sort of way: It is unflinching in asking honest questions and confronting dark moments. (Ages 10 to 14)
