I am looking for some high interest, edgy novels to read aloud to my 6th graders. We are a very low income school and our vocabulary scores are in the toilet. I want to help my students gain of love of reading. I need something that will keep them engaged.
Thanks!

Door in the Lake (search for it on this site) and Touching Bear Stone come to mind. Both have boy protagonists and are page turners.

I used the book "Drive By" by Lynne Ewing to read to my students at an inner city school grades 7th and 8th. The chapters are short and it touched aspects of the student's daily life.
We discussed predicting what would happen next, who they would write a letter to and give advice, and how words changed meaning in chapters. I would have them write in a reading journal each day. I hope this helps your class.
