I posted here on Thursday with Buzz Books for adults from Book Expo 2016. Today, I want to tell you about the Buzz Books for Young Adults and Middle Grade readers. Every year, I’m amazed at the creativity of authors who are writing for these age groups, there are many fantastic new books on the way that I think your young readers will really enjoy!
