Thank you to everyone who answered my question about fiction for 7th grade - set in 
Asia.  I prepared a bibliography for my teachers including the SLJ review (when 
available) and link to Amazon for more information.  It was very time-consuming, 
but I know they appreciated it.  If you are interested in that full document - 
email me and I can send it to you.  It did not include every book - because of the 
time involved - but it does include most.  Below is a list of the titles I included 
by country.

Also, one librarian did have a webpage for students - you can go to that site and 
get some great information.


Thank you very much
