Pioneer Ridge Middle School Book Gift If you are looking for a unique gift idea, the HUB (media center) has an idea for you! To honor the 10 year anniversary of Pioneer Ridge Middle School, you can donate a book for our shelves in the name of your child. These books will contain a special label with your child’s name on the inside cover. Books on this list are top young adult titles from 2017 and 2018. The list was generated from the work of Shauna Yusko, who is a nationally recognized school librarian. She is attuned to the diverse range of middle schoolers’ reading interests. Adventure, memoirs, books starring boys, girl power, historical fiction, humor, mental illness, science fiction, and sports are just a taste of the genres, themes, and types of books included on this delicious list. We are thrilled to get these titles on our shelves for our learners to devour! According to Katherine Paterson, author of Bridge to Terabithia: It is not enough to simply teach children...
