My Top 10 Favorite Middle-Grade Clean Fiction Books!

Hey!! Welcome back to my blog on the Clean Fiction Blog Tour!

This week I am going to share my top 10 recommendations for Clean Fiction!

The Category: Middle – Grade Fantasy & Sci-Fi with a dash of steampunk!

I love Middle-Grade Books! I love that they are usually clean, humorous, and light-hearted! I love that you can use words that would be silly in an older-age book like Splendification or Fantasticalness! I love that characters can be larger than life or speak with ridiculous speech patterns. I love that I can read them to my kid (Ages 8,9,11,&14) and not be bored!

Here is my 1-liner description of each of my faves!

Starting with the most recent I have read:

1. The Edge of the Dark Sea of Darkness! – Andrew Peterson

Three kids named Janner, Tink, and Leeli get into more trouble than you could shake a toothy cow at!

2.Keeper of the Lost Cities Series – Shannon Messenger

A girl named Sophie isn’t exactly human or Elf, but she has to save both races and finish elven highschool.

3.The Green Ember – S.D. Smith

Two Rabbits with swords, Pickett and Heather, are the key to bring peace back to the wood if they don’t get eaten by hawks or wolves first.

4.The Phantom Tollbooth – Norton Juster

A boy named Milo drives his toy car through a Phantom toll booth and the rest is what happens when you mix Alice in Wonderland with a Thesaurus!

5.The Secret World of Og – Pierre Burton

Five Children follow their brother under their playfort into a land with little green people who only say “Og” and I’ll write the rest in their Language so Og og og og-og OG Og og og -og-og-og…OG!

6.The Girl who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making Series – Cathryn M. Valente

Have you ever wanted to leave our world behind and spend some time with a Wyvern that is part library while not having a clue what was going on and trying to remember the advice the wind told you?

7.Airborn Series-Kenneth Oppel

An Alt-history where a Boy named Matt and a Girl named Kate have WAY too many discoveries and mischief aboard an air balloon!!

8.Leviathan Series- Scott Westerfeld

Also an Alt-history with an Airship, but this one is about a girl disguised as a boy and is set in WW1 where the Germans have steam-powered mechs and the Brits have bizarre genetic-engineered mechs like an airship that is part whale!

9.The Chronicles of Narnia- you should have already read this!!

A Lion, A Witch, and a Wardrobe walk into a book.

10. Charlie Thorne & The Last Equation – Stewart Gibbs

If you are already as smart and sarcastic as Charlie, then you don’t need this book to tell you how to stop baddies from getting Einstein’s formula called Pandora and saving the world.
