With a name like From the Mixed-Up Files of Middle Grade Authors, it’s obvious that we’re all about middle grade books over here. As MG writers and readers, our goal has always been to bring awareness, enthusiasm and celebration to books for 8-12 year olds, creating a *home* here at MUF for anyone and everyone who loves books for what we like to refer to as the Golden Age of Reading.
So color us delighted when we learned about the kindred spirits behind the brand-new iLoveMG initiative, a push to celebrate MG in all its glory and to make sure the fantastic books for this age group don’t get overlooked.
