While my first love was SF, I read widely in YA, urban fantasy, police procedurals,  middle-grade, and non-fiction.

Your Inner Fish: A Journey into the 3.5-Billion-Year History of the Human Body - Neil Shubin

Your Inner Fish demonstrates what writing about science for a non-scholarly audience should be like - clear explanations of complex concepts in readable language. Your Inner Fish has now been enjoyed by my whole family including two "middle grade" readers.

I especially appreciated that, while the chapters weren't weighed down with endnotes, that Neil Shubin referenced a mixture of primary and secondary sources (and that the majority of the primary sources were in journals that are relatively accessible to the general public).
