X – Middle School Books ~ Blogging Through The Alphabet

X

What to do? What to do? I just can’t come up with anything. Goodness! Harder and harder!

There were several suggestions for books that had an X “in” the title but only one that started with X.

So, for the pleasure of sharing something, here are some titles with X that look pretty interesting.

This book looks interesting to me –

Betty Before X by Ilyasah Shabazz

It is about a young black girl in the 1940s in Detroit. It shows the difficulty, the challenge, and the heartbreak. Betty grows up and becomes the wife of Malcom X, which influenced the title.

Read a full review of this book by A Net In Time.

Soldier X by Don L. Wulffson

This book is a look behind enemy lines during WWII. As a teenager, Erik goes as a soldier for Germany, experiencing the horrors of war and the Third Reich. The story looks interesting and difficult at the same time.

This book was suggested by Hopkins Homeschool.

Xander and the Lost Island of Monsters by Margaret Dilloway

6th grader Xander is looking forward to a break and spending the time with his friend and his comics. He will be thrust, instead, into a dramatic and challenging adventure.

This book was suggested by Walking Fruitfully.

Hopefully you saw one that looked interesting and will explore it. If you have other suggestions for the letter X, I would love to hear them.

Blessings,
At Home.
