[aisle] for middle grades?

I run our middle school and our high school.  I have read Dear Martin but
not Dear Justyce yet.  I do not keep these at our middle school as I am in
a rather conservative community.  The main characters are high
school students and there is swearing and drinking.  They are outstanding
books, but I keep them at the high school and only loan them to middle
school students who would request them from our high school collection.
There is a big difference between a kid requesting the book than an
unsuspecting 6th grader picking them up off the shelf.
