Reading for Pleasure in Y5

 

We love to read in Year Five.

 

Our current class book is The Middler by Kirsty Applebaum

 

 

 

About the book

In the town of Fennis Wick, there are two rules: eldests go to military camp when they turn 14, and you don’t talk to wanderers: they’re dirty, dangerous and deceitful, or so Maggie’s been told.

Maggie is a middler – a middle child – and she’s sick of it. Eldest children get all the good stuff: the parties, the prizes and the praise, while middlers grow up in the eldests’ shadows. Maggie desperately wants a taste of being an eldest. But the summer that her eldest brother Jed goes off to camp and Maggie meets a wanderer, everything she thought she understood about the world comes crashing down.

Maggie’s just a middler, though, so who’s going to listen when she tries to tell the truth? Maybe if Maggie can catch the wanderer, the townspeople will see that middlers can be heroes too…

This is a wonderfully conceived and slickly executed dystopian novel set in a seemingly idyllic town, but with an undercurrent of secrets to send a shiver down the spine. Maggie is a boiling pot of adolescent emotions, whose jealousy of the eldests leads her to make some challenging choices which have consequences for everyone.
