Thanks.

Some titles are:
1. City of Ember by DuPrau (sp?)
2. Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix
3. Eager by Helen Fox
4. Cosmic by Boyce

*Some disagree about this title being science fiction, but it is on a lot of sci-fi lists for kids and a really good book: Among the Hidden by Margaret Peterson Haddix

Any sci-fi list has to start with A Wrinkle in Time by L'Engle!

Some other titles:
Above World by Jenn Reese
The Accidental Hero by Matt Myklusch
Aliens on Vacation by Clete Barrett Smith
Masterminds by Gordon Korman

When teaching 6th grade, I always rounded out my novel studies with A Wrinkle in Time. (Also, many are not aware that L'Engle wrote 4 books within that series, which is a plus for kids who really get into it.)

I became intrigued with the book about 7 years ago when reading an article about how difficult it was for L'Engle to get it published. It wasn't that it wasn't well-written; the publishers who read it couldn't agree as to whether it belonged with fantasy or science fiction!

From that point on, one of the major activities for the book was to debate that same dilemma. Oh! It caused marvelous dialogue, for there are strong arguments for both views.

Sorry to hijack the post, but it brought back such strong memories!
