Children's and Young Adult Literature: Hi-Lo Middle School Fiction

This guide is a starting place for exploring children's and young adult literature

About Middle School Hi-Lo Books

The titles below are generally recommended for middle school interest levels.  Younger students in this age range may also be interested in our juvenile Hi-Lo books while older students may be interested in young adult Hi-Lo books.

These are only recommendations intended to help educators and guardians find titles to evaluate. The TDRL staff has not reviewed every listed Hi-Lo title and has classified the interest level of these materials based on publisher information and reviews. Educators and guardians should use their best judgment on whether specific titles meet the needs of their young people.
