Book review "Blended" by Sharon Draper. Add this book to your classroom today! #bookreview #books #middleschool


“Blended” by Sharon M. Draper is fantastic book for middle school classrooms.  I received an Advance Reader’s Copy of this novel as part of a blogger promotion from Simon & Schuster Canada. All opinions are my own, and I was not additionally compensated for this post beyond the complimentary novel.

Isabella is an eleven year old girl living in suburban Ohio. She is a middle school student dealing with issues like her parents’ divorce and friendship troubles. She tries to navigate her life while dealing with classmates and strangers questioning her about her skin colour due to her being biracial. Isabella examines these important contemporary issues that today’s students will relate to.


I loved this book. It was such an engaging read even for an adult. I kept wanting to come home from work to finish it! If you liked “The Hate You Give” by Angie Thomas you will love this novel which is more middle school appropriate than “The Hate You Give”.  This book would be great for Grade 6 and up. It would be excellent for a classroom library or a book club set.
