The Middle Grade audience is readers ages 8–12. Generally 30,000–50,000 words (although fantasy can run longer to allow for more complex world-building). No profanity, graphic violence or sexuality (romance, if any, is limited to a crush or a first kiss). Age of protagonist: Typically age 10 for a younger MG novel, and up to age 13 for older, more complex books. Focus on friends, family and the character’s immediate world and relationship to it; characters react to what happens to them, with minimal self-reflection.
