Hi. I am Zack Barnes, and welcome to A to Z Book Reviews. I am a special education teacher at Metro Nashville Public Schools, and I am a recent PhD graduate from the Literacy Studies program at MTSU. Now that I am not longer working on a dissertation, I have much more time to read!

zack profile 2As a middle and high school teacher, I will be reviewing a lot of a middle grade (MG) fiction. I read a lot of MG books so that I can personally recommend those books to my students. I’ll also be reviewing a wide variety of books that I read, including nonfiction, young adult, and spy thrillers.

I am also a freelance writer interested in education, science, politics and interviews. My writings have appeared in The Tennessean, Education Post, Nashville Scene, Memphis Daily News, Chapter 16, and Nashville Ledger
