喜歡讀原文小說的你，相信 Harry Potter 和 Percy Jackson 早已是你的口袋名單，甚至已經讀完了。意猶未盡之餘，你可能還會想找更多類似的小說來閱讀，但是有哪些比較推薦？這篇文章將整理適合中小學生（8-12 歲）閱讀的小說，一起來看看有沒有你喜歡的吧！
如何免費看這些書：Kindle 30 天免費訂閱電子書及有聲書！
我們在書單裡的書加上 Amazon 的小說連結方便感興趣的家長跟學生直接購買，不過我們推薦家長可以考慮 Kindle Unlimited，Amazon 提供 30 天 Kindle Unlimited 的訂閱試用，不只可以免費閱讀清單裡所有的書，Amazon 在不久之前併購了 Audible，學生也可以選擇『聆聽版』的有聲書，在坐車或家裡的時候聽作者讀小說，讓學生在不方便看書或想讓眼睛稍微休息的時候還是可以繼續『看』書！
Amazon 會很佛心的在到期前幾天郵件通知，如果 30 天過後還想要享受免費的 Kindle Unlimited，只要再用另一個信箱註冊 Kindle Unlimited，就又會有 30 天免費了！
偷偷告訴你：如果想繼續訂閱，先選擇取消，原因選擇『太貴』，Amazon 會主動提供更優惠的 Kindle Unlimited 訂閱價格喔！
學生可以善用這個 30 天免費試用的優惠，體驗看看 Kindle 電子書跟 Audible 有聲書合不合適自己的閱讀習慣。雖然讀書的體驗會跟傳統的紙質書不同，但比較優惠的電子書價格及隨買隨看的優點，也是值得參考跟嘗試 Kindle Unlimited 的原因！
Kindle 電子書可以在任何設備（電腦、平板、手機）上閱讀，但如果家長擔心這些設備對眼睛可能造成的負擔，家長可以選擇購買一台專門為讀書設計、螢幕顯示文字的方式對眼睛比較好的 Amazon Kindle，尤其推薦下面這台 “For Kids” 的 Amazon Kindle Paperwhite Kids，除了有 Parental Control 家長可以追蹤學生每天閱讀量以外，在這台上面是無法安裝其他玩樂或看影片的 app 的，就只能專心看書（會不會太殘酷…?）。
1. The School for Good and Evil
With her glass slippers and devotion to good deeds, Sophie knows she’ll earn top marks at the School for Good and join the ranks of past students like Cinderella, Rapunzel, and Snow White. Meanwhile, Agatha, with her shapeless black frocks and wicked black cat, seems a natural fit for the villains in the School for Evil.
The two girls soon find their fortunes reversed—Sophie’s dumped in the School for Evil to take Uglification, Death Curses, and Henchmen Training, while Agatha finds herself in the School for Good, thrust among handsome princes and fair maidens for classes in Princess Etiquette and Animal Communication.
But what if the mistake is actually the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are?
2. Dragon Rider
Firedrake, a young dragon, receives a frightening warning one night: Humans are planning to destroy the valley in which he lives! All the dragons must flee. Their only refuge is a place above the clouds called the Rim of Heaven — which may not even exist. Firedrake boldly volunteers to go ahead first. As he embarks on his journey, he meets Ben, a runaway boy. Together, the boy & dragon make their way toward the Rim of Heaven, all the while running a step ahead of Nettlebrand, a monster who will stop at nothing to hunt down Firedrake. Their quest will truly become an adventure like no other.
3. The Shadow Thieves
Oh, it’s not the very cute kitten that appears out of nowhere and demands to go home with her. It’s not the sudden arrival of her cousin Zee, who believes he’s the cause of a mysterious sickness that has struck his friends back in England. It’s not her creepy English teacher Mr. Metos, who takes his mythology lessons just a little too seriously. And it’s not the white-faced, yellow-eyed men in tuxedoes, who follow Charlotte everywhere.
What’s so extraordinary is not any one of these things….It’s all of them. And when Charlotte’s friends start to get sick one by one, Charlotte and Zee set out to find a cure. Their quest leads them to a not-so-mythical Underworld, where they face rhyme-loving Harpies, gods with personnel problems, and ghosts with a thirst for blood.
Charlotte and Zee learn that in a world overrun by Nightmares, Pain, and Death, the really dangerous character is a guy named Phil. And then they discover that the fate of every person — living and dead — is in their young hands.
4. Aru Shah and the End of Time
Best-selling author Rick Riordan introduces this adventure by Roshani Chokshi about twelve-year-old Aru Shah, who has a tendency to stretch the truth in order to fit in at school. While her classmates are jetting off to family vacations in exotic locales, she’ll be spending her autumn break at home, in the Museum of Ancient Indian Art and Culture, waiting for her mom to return from her latest archeological trip. Is it any wonder that Aru makes up stories about being royalty, traveling to Paris, and having a chauffeur? One day, three schoolmates show up at Aru’s doorstep to catch her in a lie. They don’t believe her claim that the museum’s Lamp of Bharata is cursed, and they dare Aru to prove it. Just a quick light, Aru thinks. Then she can get herself out of this mess and never ever fib again. But lighting the lamp has dire consequences. She unwittingly frees the Sleeper, an ancient demon whose duty it is to awaken the God of Destruction. Her classmates and beloved mother are frozen in time, and it’s up to Aru to save them. The only way to stop the demon is to find the reincarnations of the five legendary Pandava brothers, protagonists of the Hindu epic poem, the Mahabharata, and journey through the Kingdom of Death. But how is one girl in Spider-Man pajamas supposed to do all that?

9. Tristan Strong Punches a Hole in the Sky
Seventh grader Tristan Strong feels anything but strong ever since he failed to save his best friend when they were in a bus accident together. All he has left of Eddie is the journal his friend wrote stories in. Tristan is dreading the month he’s going to spend on his grandparents’ farm in Alabama, where he’s being sent to heal from the tragedy.
But on his first night there, a sticky creature shows up in his bedroom and steals Eddie’s notebook. Tristan chases after it–is that a doll?–and a tug-of-war ensues between them underneath a Bottle Tree. In a last attempt to wrestle the journal out of the creature’s hands, Tristan punches the tree, accidentally ripping open a chasm into the MidPass, a volatile place with a burning sea, haunted bone ships, and iron monsters that are hunting the inhabitants of this world.
Tristan finds himself in the middle of a battle that has left black American folk heroes John Henry and Brer Rabbit exhausted. In order to get back home, Tristan and these new allies will need to entice the god Anansi, the Weaver, to come out of hiding and seal the hole in the sky. But bartering with the trickster Anansi always comes at a price.
Can Tristan save this world before he loses more of the things he loves?
