I'm compiling a list of MG books with 13+ protagonists for a blog post. Can you help me? Thanks.

Savvy and also Scumble, by Ingrid Law
the Alcatraz vs the Evil Librarians series by Brandon Sanderson
Not sure if they're 12 or 13, but they're in 7th grade (the year you turn 13) in Gordon Korman's Hypnotists series.

I think a ton of MG has 13YO protagonists.

Since you specified age 13+ you're bordering on YA, and would find a lot of say, 14 and 15 year old characters in that category. Just sayin'  :grin3
