We’ve rounded up our favorite Middle Grade Novels written in verse!
April is National Poetry Month, and although you can certainly read poetry any time of the year, I thought now seemed like the perfect time for a list of our favorite middle grade novels written in verse.
What is a novel in verse? It’s a story that is written in the form of poetry rather than prose. It doesn’t have to rhyme, and it normally doesn’t. It’s a wonderful medium for story telling because it can give a unique depth to the story while also propelling it forward in way that is especially pleasing for young readers. There are also a lot of novels in verse that are quick reads, which is always appealing for reluctant readers.
We’ve read a lot of books in verse, but this list just includes our favorites of the bunch! They’re perfect for kids ages 8 to 14.
