Middle grade fiction. Everybody loves it. They're the books you read long after you've left the babyish picture books and easy readers of your youth behind. Middle grade fiction means chapters. Now since we already have a Fantasy/Sci-Fi category for this award, I won't be needing anything along those lines. I want you to instead nominate those chapter books that balance child appeal with out-and-out great writing. We are NOT covering YA fiction so make sure you are careful in relegating a book to one category or another. Fun, fabulous fiction. That's where my MGFs are at.
