Earlier this month I was asked for a list of middle grade books with female protagonists. That naturally led to the question about books with male protagonists - so here you go!
First off, I want to define "middle grade" books. Middle grade books tend to refer to books written for and read by 8-12 year olds. Many 4th and 5th graders would enjoy these books, and I even have these books in my high school library. It's a pretty broad category, but they address issues of growing up without the worry of having coarse language or sexual situations that may come with young adult books.
So, here are 10 diverse middle grade books with male protagonists - recommended for both girls and boys to read!
