[aisle] looking for clean YA reads for advanced reader

Hi, Clair!

I’d take a look at The Box and the Dragonfly (The Keepers series) by Ted Sanders and The Glass Sentence (The Mapmakers series) by S.E. Grove. They are both long and describe complex worlds/concepts, so whether they’d be a fit would depend on whether you think the reader is ready for that. They are middle grade, not YA, but I think they might be a fit for your request.

I recently got a request to put together a reading list for a 9 y.o. reading near a 9th grade level. They like fantasy, but their parents want to keep their reading away from gore or romantic elements-- so definitely no Hunger Games, Mortal Instruments, etc. This second stipulation has really stymied my ideas-- does anyone have any recommendations?
