October is… Domestic Violence Awareness Month

22 Oct

Today I’m wearing purple in support of  Domestic Violence Awareness Month, it’s not a big thing, but hopefully it brings people’s awareness to an issue that affects so many people.  So, as I’m wearing purple, I thought I take a look and create a list of some middle grade books that deal with domestic violence.  And to be honest, I couldn’t find too many or even booklists that have already been created.  I believe it’s a fairly heavy topic for middle grade books, but I also believe that there are kids that are dealing with these issues in their everyday life.  If you can think of any more books, specifically middle grade realistic fiction, let me know!
