Intermediate and Middle School Age Books that are Perfect for Cozy Fall Evenings (2020)

The crisp fall weather is finally here!  If you are looking for good books for your intermediate or middle school child, I have the perfect list for you.  Personally, I love when my son says that reading is fun. It just takes the right books to get that response from him. He is very opinionated about books, so not only is this list approved by me, but it's also enthusiastically approved by my 5th grader!  The following is a list of his most recent favorite books.
