I read The Expeditioners this summer and I absolutely loved it.  It is fantasy, mystery, science fiction, dystopian and steam punk book rolled all into one!  And even cooler it is absolutely appropriate for our middle grade students.  This book kept my attention the whole way through and I loved the story.  It is also going to be a series which is very exciting to hear.  Please check out the resources below for more information on this book:
