See the blog tour stop at Jamie Eyberg’s blog, A Continuity of Parks.
I did know Jamie in school, though he was a few years ahead of me so I can’t say we went to high school together. I knew his sisters better then.
One of his questions did get me thinking, though. Young adult or middle grade? We apply these labels according to an age level, but how many of us truly fit those little boxes? An age range is a guideline and it’s up to the parents, educators, or the youngsters to figure out what they’re ready to tackle. It’s a tough question, but it does help readers to have that information.
At least, that’s my opinion. A student might not read at the specified age level but may consistently be above or below. Knowing that would guide those students to where they need to be.
Or am I making it too difficult?
