"In Middle School is No Place for Magic, Jay confronts changes at home, and in his heart, as he bravely leans into and learns from new experiences at school, with friends, and with his family. Despite the title, author Mimi Olson has proven that middle school is just the place to “magick” into being a hero readers will cheer for."


   ~ Shutta Crum, award-winning author of Thomas and the Dragon Queen, and ALA and Smithsonian Magazine Notable Book of the Year Thunder-Boomer! as well as many other titles for young readers.
