This week's middle grade sci fi/fantasy round-up (8/2/20)

Only five months left of 2020!  I'm starting to work on my 2021 bingo card (I predicted nothing correctly for 2020).  I'm thinking rabid badgers (because why hasn't this ever happened before?), the sun going supernova, the strange seeds from China devastating our crops, and other excitements.  But also there will always be great mg sci-fi and fantasy books to provide a pleasant escape!

In any event, here's what I found in my blog reading this week (please let me know if I missed your post!)
