I know this is late but I wanted to add to the great responses already! This will be my 18th year in 6th grade and I have always had the inclusion class so I really need to have a wide variety of levels and interests. As a surprise to me, my own son was not a fan of reading once he hit 4th grade. Graphic novels were the only things he was picking up. I like them too but I wanted to get him into other genres. That is how I found Margaret Peterson Haddix and the The Shadow Children series. My son read the entire series and then moved on to her Missing series.

I start the year off with an exaggerated book sell of the 2 series and that seems to get them off and running. By word of mouth, at least half the class starts the series. Many continue on. They are great for reluctant readers, history buffs (Missing series) as well as science fiction (Missing).

Check her out!
