September has really gotten away from me!  I’ve been planning on doing some booklists for Hispanic Heritage Month and I realized that we’re heading toward October and I need to do them now! So, without further ado, here’s a great list of middle grade and young adult novels that feature Hispanic characters and/or are written by Hispanic authors.  My goal is to also create a picture book list as well as a nonfiction/biography/poetry list.  Enjoy!
