The Spirit of Texas Reading Program-Middle School is intended for recreational reading, not to support a specific curriculum.

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.
