Here's a great summer read for teenage girls - I read first it in seventh grade and loved it; now I'm entering college and I still think it's brilliant. Everything is written in free verse, with beautiful illustrations. Highly recommended.

Searching for a book..
i was wondering if anyone could help me find a book i am looking for.
I read this book few years ago and cannot remember the author nor the title, but only vaguely. The storyline went something like this...
A seveteen year old school girl falls in love with a 40 year old who has a daughter she finally had to some how give him up after a friend pressures her to do so...i think it was set in France.
The title if i remember it vaguely was something like "the french sisters" or something like that. The main character's name might have been Claire.
i really hope anyone can give me the title or the author.

What to read
I made a service and think you may like it.
It allows you to store list of books you read and/or recommend, using tags to categorize the list.
Then you can see what other people are reading in categories of your interest, e.g. it's like del.icio.us
is only starting, so don't expect too much too fast :) but eventually it will become more and more usable as more people add their books there.

Ah. P.S. Last post made by me--the book is named The Mayor of Lexington Avenue
Hi All. I've never posted here before but my name is Caitlin and I've lived in NYC all my life. So my aunt is always getting books sent to her, asking to be made into movies and such, and I just recently read probably the most amazing book I think I will ever read in my entire life. So far it has had beyond amazing reviews and its a FIRST novel. I'm so hyper about this book, I figured where else to go to get others to read it but livejournal? Haha. Anyways, I looked up the info on the author and found his website http://www.jamesheehan.com/
so I guess the book doesn't officially come out til August 10th but I suggest EVERYONE go out and buy a copy because its beyond amazing. Feel free to comment back and tell me any good books you think I should check out!!
[X-Posted everywhere because its so amazing.]

i just read children of the end by mark a. clements. its about a scientist who makes the "loners", who he hopes kills 7 out of 10 people, so the world is no longer overpopulated. the plan goes wrong, and its an interesting twist. it wasn't that scary, but the loners were funny, and the author was descriptive. all in all, it was an ok book. i'm not sure if i'd read it again or not though. Current Mood: creative

i finished reading BITE by richard laymon. it was a really good book, one i'd recommend. cat goes to her friend sam, who she hasn't seen in years, to help her kill a vampire. they do, and they take him out to the dessert to bury him so he doesn't come back. what happens after that is unbelieveable and it has a lot of action. you should defintely read this book. Current Mood: blah

i finished reading witchcraft by bill michaels. it was pretty good, better than i thought it would be. its about a private investigator that gets himself involved in a occult case. lady eva(the bad guy) is trying to make the world her own personal hell. by doing so she kidnaps molly's daughter. molly is the woman that the private investigator is working the case for. the ending is totally unexpected. its a pretty good read. Current Mood: anxious

This week I read Herzog by Saul Bellow, which was full of quotable bits of wisdom, but was a slow read. His letter writing started to really bore me, and while an interesting method to character development, it seemed to become unnecessary.
I also read Happy Birthday, Wanda June. A play by Vonnegut. I loved it and found it to be absolutely hilarious (especially his commentary on Heaven) and appreciated the not-so-subtle bashing of Hemmingway's personal life.
I was in a play-reading mood, so I also read The Misunderstanding and Caligula by Albert Camus. In the near future I will be devouring his other plays because these two were amazing. I know that word is used far too freely - especially in response to literature that one doesn't completely understand - but I love the flowery and tragic way he writes dialogue while still keeping it simple.
There has also been some short story reading, and some T.S. Eliot.

i just finished reading psycho by robert bloch. it wasn't as good as i thought it would be, but it wasn't horrible either. it wasn't creepy at all, but the end was kinda unpredictable. Current Mood: bored
Hi, I'm new
Hello, all. I'm new to this community, and like all of the other members, I am addicted to books and love reading. I actually just finished Dune: The Butlerian Jihad
, which is the first volume in one of the two pre-Dune trilogies that Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson wrote together. If anyone does not know what this book is about, it basically tells the story of the start of the great Butlerian Jihad, which occurred some ten thousands years before the events chronicled in Frank Herbert's Dune
I am also currently reading Stronghold Rising
by Lisanne Norman. Current Mood: curious

i just finished reading marlfox by brian jaques. its part of the redwall series. for those who haven't read anything about redwall, its a abbey in mossflower that has talking animals that live in peace, but fight when they have to, which is in every book. this one the marlfoxes attack the abbey and take a tapestry, which 3 redwall warriors go to get back. if you haven't read any redwall, i recommend you do.
