Dystopian Book List for 6th (Sixth) Grade

Grade Levels
PDF (10 MB)


Dystopian fiction is all the rage, but it's tough to find appropriate titles for lower middle grade students. I compiled a list of 18 books that 6th graders would enjoy and understand! Some are higher level, but the content is easier to comprehend than a lot of dystopian books. This list would also be helpful for middle school in general!

This list was created with Dystopian Book Clubs (Units of Study for Teaching Reading: Middle School Grades) by Lucy Calkins and Katy Wischow in mind.
