Talk Chisme to Me: SFF Middle Grade Books by Latinx Authors (Latinx Heritage Month)

I am so excited to share today’s Talk Chisme to Me post with you all today. I enjoy all kinds of middle grade novels, but especially enjoy SFF novels. I’ve put together a list of 32 SFF middle grade novels by Latine authors for those who have middle graders in your life or those who love embracing their inner child. Note that those marked with an “*” have not been released yet. Covers are linked to Goodreads.
