this week's roundup of middle grade sci fi and fantasy from around the blogs (10/1/17)

Welcome to this week's round up of middle grade fantasy and science fiction from around the blogs!  Please let me know if I missed your post.

First--Cybils nominations are now open!  Anyone can nominate books (one book for each category), and so I hope you all go nominate (at a minimum) your favorite Elementary and Middle Grade speculative fiction book!  I'm the category organizer, and I'm also a proud mother, because for the second year, my own teenaged son (his blog is A Goblin Reviews Graphic Novels) is a panelist in the graphic novel category.
