this week's round-up of middle grade fantasy and sci fi from around the blogs (10/4/20)

Welcome to this week's round-up of middle grade fantasy and sci fi from around the blogs!  Here's what I found this week; please let me know if I missed your post.  

NB--books with an asterisk are those that are eligble for the year's Cybils Awards and haven't yet been nominated!  Anyone can nominate books, so show your favorites some love!  (If you need more ideas for Elementary/middle grade books to nominate, here's my working list of the books that are still up for grabs!)
