The Young Adult Round Table of the Texas Library Association has announced the Texas Lone Star List for 2005-2006. This list has wonderful titles for students in grades 6, 7, and 8.
I loved THE AMULET OF SAMARKAND by Jonathan Stroud as well as THE WISH LIST by Eoin Colfer. I have a copy of THE SEA OF TROLLS by Nancy Farmer on deck. Lot of great reads there, take a look and pick some up.
