About the Program:
This is nothing like your school reading list! Quirk’s Super Secret Middle Grade Book Club gives kids early access to upcoming books—and lets them become a book reviewer!
Every other month, middle grade readers will receive an advance reader copy (or ARC) of an upcoming Quirk book in exchange for a book review. (We only send out 50 copies and this ARC is not for sale, so other kids won’t be able to read the book until it comes out!)
As part of the package, we’ll also send a reviewer survey for kids to share their opinions with us, with your help. Once they’ve submitted their survey, we’ll send them a finished copy of the book as a thank-you.
Grown-ups can also join our exclusive Facebook group to meet other caregivers of middle grade readers and access fun activities, educational resources, and exclusive content from authors.
Who Can Join?
This program is geared toward children ages 8–12 years old, but is open to any child who enjoys reading middle grade books. Parents/guardians can sign up children via the form below. Parents or guardians over 18 years of age must fill out the form on behalf of the child in order for them to participate.
