Anyone have book recs in the 900-1000 lexile range. Asking for teacher who must use this system, but whose GT 4/5 graders need better books!

Several of the Dear America books are at that level, Gary Paulsen's books!

Try Search by Lexile and then filter by subject, age range, etc.

James Patterson's site is a good start with gifted "searchables."
