Bibliotherapy, or the therapeutic use of literature, can support students as they develop empathy and a deeper understanding of themselves and each other. The middle-grade novels featured in this guide can be used in classrooms, small counseling groups, and book groups. Engaging and timely, these books address themes of neurodiversity, cultural diversity, gender identity, mental health, homelessness, poverty, grief, trauma, domestic violence, and bullying
