When I was middle-grade I had the same allergy to fantasy. My best friend was a Piers Anthony addict, so I tasted plenty of it and tried to like it too, but -- yecch! I think Randall Munroe agrees with me:

One book that did work for me in those years was Conrad Richter's _The Light in the Forest_, though it is pretty Tragic (and maybe that's the kiss of death). But the anglo invasion of North America has a lot in common with the contemporary post-apocalyptic boom: your land is ravaged, your culture is destroyed, and you're forced to make a life amid the ruined remnants. So maybe it would still work for kids today?
