Middle School / Books Rule!
Recommended books for grades 5-8



The story: Iris feels like her new home and life in Oregon are as grey and overcast as the sky. Witness to her best friend’s death, the 6th grader just can’t let go–she visits a psychic, tries to get a recording of her friend’s ghost voice, and even wonders about the possibility of a miracle to bring her friend back to life. She would never have guessed that a geeky kid named Boris would help her move on–not to the other side like Sarah, but into another life…one that’s not quite so grey.

Mrs. Friend’s opinion: If you’ve ever head to deal with the death of someone close to you, you’ll know there aren’t any magic fixes–but Iris wants there to be such a thing as miracles.  It’s only when she learns the value of letting other people help that it looks like she’s going to open up and let her life start moving back toward normal again.
