Book Recommendation: Chirp by Kate Messner

Welcome to #iLoveMG where I share middle grade books that my fifth graders recommend. (Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

I read a realistic fiction book called Chirp, and it was by Kate Messner. Chirp was about a girl named Mia who lives near a cricket farm that her grandmother owns, and she joins a club where you can make businesses. She wants to create something to help the failing cricket farm with the help of her new friends, but she also shares a secret that she’d rather forget. Meanwhile, something mysterious is happening at the farm, and Mia and her friend want to figure it out. 

I think this is a great book because there are three main parts: first, the three friends working together to save the farm. The second part is, there’s a mystery to solve and they think someone is sabotaging the farm. And lastly, there’s an important lesson in the book. If you like realistic fiction, with some mystery in it, then you would love this book. I think Chirp is a fantastic book and I would give it five stars out of five. 

Here is my cover design for Chirp:
