Middle Grade Reading Challenge

This week marked the start of the Middle Grade Reading Challenge hosted by Jill at O.W.L. The book I am reading fits! Anyway, here's what I have to do to complete this challenge:
There will be 4 levels:
5th Grader: At least 4 Books
6th Grader: At least 6 Books
7th Grader: At least 8 Books
8th Grader: At least 10 Books

Fifth Grade Level:
1. Olivia Kidney by Ellen Potter (I would feel very comfortable having fifth graders read this, but I think fourth graders and also higher third graders would be fine reading this as well.)
2. The Birthday Ball by Lois Lowry (again, also fine for third & fourth graders--such a fun book!)
3. The Incorrigible Children of Ashton Place by Maryrose Wood
4. 11 Birthdays by Wendy Mass

Sixth Grade Level:
1. Fablehaven: Keys to the Demon Prison by Brandon Mull
2. Powerless by Matthew Cody
3. A Crooked Kind of Perfect by Linda Urban
4.
5.
6.

Seventh Grade Level:
1. I am a Genius of Unspeakable Evil and I Want to be Your Class President by Josh Lieb
(although this says young adult on amazon, Elizabeth Bird read and reviewed it and she doesn't read young adult and the main character is 12)
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.

Eighth Grade Level:
1. Once a Witch by Carolyn MacCullough (most would probably say this is too young adult, but I know several 8th graders that would be able to dig this book just fine.)
2. Lockdown: Escape for Furnace by Alexander Gordon Smith
3. The Rise of Renegade X by Chelsea Campbell
4.
5.
6.
7.
