Definition of the "Children's and Middle Grade Genre": Children who are reading these ebooks are still at the stage of their life where they are focused inward. They are figuring themselves out (a process that shouldn't stop just because we grow older), and so they focus what they want to read on that stage of their lives. While characters in the Children's and Middle Grade genre grow during the stories, the growth is internal by nature. Ebooks in this genre typically focus on friendship, as children are working out what it makes to be a responsible friend to others, and what they look for in friends themselves.
Some bestselling ebooks in the Children's and Middle Grade genre are Katherine Applegate (The One and Only Ivan), R.J. Palacio (Wonder), Jacqueline Woodson (Brown Girl Dreaming), and Sharon Draper (Out of My Mind).
