Too old for kids’ books? Too young for steamy YA novels? Middle grade novels are perfectly pitched for the inbe-tweens.

Magical, engaging, yet still capable of packing a punch, these are the novels that hook lifelong readers. Hear from some of Australia’s finest middle grade authors – Deborah Abela (The Kindness Project), Samera Kamaleddine (The Sideways Orbit of Evie Hart) and Nova Weetman (Outlaw Girls) – as they discuss the joy of writing for this important age group. Recommended ages 8+
