It's Tuesday, which means a new episode of What Should I Read Next!
Today's guest is Grace Martin, a 12-year-old bibliophile who lives with her family outside Chicago. Grace loves Harry Potter, dystopian novels, and strong plotting and she’s incredibly well spoken about her taste in literature. I also chat a bit with Grace’s mom Lara about raising readers and helping kids choose good books for themselves.
