This week's round-up of middle grade fantasy and science fiction from around the blogs (9/11/16)

Here's what I found this week; please let me know if I missed your post!

First--applications to be a panelist for the Cybils Awards are due Sept. 14--do consider applying!  There are more categories than Elementary/MG Spec Fic.--maybe audiobooks are your thing, or maybe you have a six year old at home and want to read all the chapter books of the past year!  Or maybe you've spent the year deep in YA spec fic--they always need good panelists who aren't afraied of a bit of reading...
