SPOT- Middle School Authors

The Spirit of Texas Reading Program-Middle School is intended for recreational reading, not to support a specific curriculum. Due to the diversity of this age range, Texas librarians should purchase titles on this list according to their individual collection policies. Each author featured on the list has had at least one book favorably reviewed for grades 6-8 in a professional review source. *Past authors and lists for both Spirit of Texas Reading Lists will be posted sometime in the future on a separate page.
