Harry, Ron, and Hermione start acting like moody adolescents and as they wade into the dating pool, and Harry and Ron realize for the first time that Hermione is a girl. The Outsiders , by S. Hinton Who knows teens better than a teen knows teens?
Amazingly, S. Hinton was just 19 years old when she wrote this sad, violent, humanity-steeped story about the roughneck gang-like Greasers and the preppy, jerky Socs they have to deal with at school. It feels intense and realistic, like a more richly imagined West Side Story set against the rural backdrop of small-town Oklaoma.

Carrie is about a young woman discovering her own self, trying to put parental control aside, and dealing with weird body stuff. Blankets , by Craig Thompson A lot of high school kids have a super-religious phase, as spirituality offers a lot of answers—or at least comfort—in a very tumultuous time.

Throughout his work, Green is most adept at describing the sparkling, tingly feelings of teenage crushes bordering on love.

Anna and the French Kiss , by Stephanie Perkins There are so many great romantic comedy movie tropes here, scaled down into high-school life. Georgia leads a proudly messy life, as she and her best friend Jas spy on boys they like and try to compete with older, more provocative girls for attention and affection. Hey Nostradamus!

The egg is from the union of a dragon and human woman and is watched over and accompanied by an oriental unicorn creature. I think it was called a Ki-lin or Ky-rin maybe Qylin, not sure. The creature starts off as a small statue and he can shrink to tiny size or grow to the size of a horse.
And he never harms anything, not even a blade of grass. At the end of the book, the woman returns home to open an orphanage. When the egg hatches, there are twins inside. A perfect little dragon and a human baby. My friend thinks there might be a fox in the story also. I'm searching for a book that I was assigned to read for a college class in or It probably fits under the category of Intermediate Reader or possibly YA. Definitely historical fiction. It's the best book I've ever read, so I can't believe I don't remember the author or even the title.
The story is set during the time when white people are leary of their Japanese neighbors. The story centers around a girl and her family who have a farm I think on one of the San Juan Islands. Relatives come to stay with the girl's family and she is not happy about it because the female cousin is spoiled and tries to get her in trouble. The girl likes to go out sailing in her sailboat.

- The Girl with the Painted Face;
One night she is out in her sailboat with her friend and it is foggy and they hear another boat nearby and they hear voices and the sound of a body being thrown overboard. When the boat leaves, the girl and her friend retrieve the body from the water and bring it back to shore.
The body turns out to be a Japanese man and they hide him and nurse him back to health. The would-be murderers of the Japanese man discover that he is still alive and chase the girl and her friend and cousin and the Japanese man across Puget Sound in their sailboats to Friday Harbor. It is an intense chase. Wish I could remember more of the book. Does anyone know the title of the book I'm thinking of? They get him on board and the chief engineer poisons him and takes money. The characters are, Lt. Commander Cordeau, Lt. Beech, Zola the stoker can't remember any more!! The rogue engineer shoots Cordeau and takes Beech prisoner and then lets him go as he has run out of bullets.
I think the book was called "Dead Mans Chest". Thanks in advance John. I can't for the life of me remember the rest of the book or what it is called! Can anyone see if they know! I am looking for a novel about a girl whose tree in her back yard has a world within where her parent go and get balloons of life that keep them young. Cover I believe depicted a tree and red ballon of some sort.
It was about a female inmate who was in a horse training program. I think a guy adopted the horse she was working with, but I remember she ended up going to his house to help train the horse. His child had special needs. And of course like all good books they fell in love in end. Horses name was something like Wildfire Its about some boys and a girl all working as detectives with sherlock holmes. There at a circus and some people perform tricks in code. I want to learn the tricks but i dont know the book.
Any ideas? I am looking for a book that I read in 5th grade. I am pretty sure the title was something like The Family. It was essentially about a family with 5 or 6 children, mostly boys, and their antics. This book was stuck in my mind because one of the sons dies after riding his bike down a hill and then crashing into the side of a car at the bottom. There was also another kid that really like to eat butter and was caught eating a whole stick of it and later got sent to the hospital with a really high fever, like The family's first Easter after the son's death was really hard.
The end of the book had the family go to Thanksgiving with their famous pudding and as they are about to leave the car one of the younger boys accidentally stepped in it and the mom was devastated that the pudding was ruined but the dad was like no it's fine the shoe was clean we don't need to tell anyone.
When dessert came around the parents were told that the pudding tasted better than ever so the mom and dad went to the kitchen to laugh really hard, the first time that they had laughed so hard since their son had died. This book is about a girl who met a guy while on vacation and decided to go back with him to his country and meet his family They first met with his brother who didn't seem to fond of her. A novel about a confused woman she sees shadows in a mirror, and she loses time. They are chased and watched and end up in an alternate universe where there is a backwards ticking clock.
A countdown of some sort that she has on her to accomplish a task. The driver can help, but it diminishes his life immensely to do this and she feels as though she has done this before. Can anyone help? Book is about a boy whose father was murdered in his childhood by a thief, he waits all his life with a knife to avenge his father's death. The boy later grows up to be teacher in his own village and finds out that his favourite students father was the murderer of his father.
At first he plans to seek revenge but after seeing his health condition he leaves him to his fate. Book about a boy whose family moves into a new house; he rides a bike to school I remember reading that he had to remember to go in a different direction than usual to get to his new house, otherwise he would've been at his old one. I thought it could've been Time For Andrew, but it wasn't; there was no aunt in this book.
YA paperback, read before Book about a guy, bitten by a snake, wakes to find humanity gone. All the people in town think they are crazy too. The mother has a miscarriage and stays locked up in her room, and the brother is a drunk who Runs over his younger brothers cat, clementine. The older brother then crashes the car and lights it on fire with himself in it. At the end of the book the little brother decided to kill the rest of his family. The book was about a young black man.
His parents are killed in a car accident or a train hit them unsure. He is found in a pig pen at some point, is taken in to foster care, and endures racism throughout his time as a foster child. He is locked in a shed for sometime and manages to escape. He sleeps outside a few times and carries a picture of his mother in his bag.
It may have taken place in or near Mississippi because it had a jazz influence. Looking for the name of a romance book where the heroine is daughter of a demon lord and she kills him at end of first book for her love and is taken to hell to rule to save her unborn child. This book starts out with a woman, her husband, and twins moving into a new neighborhood I believe around the late s earlys. They also learn that they all like to read.
This begins a lifelong friendship and monthly book club. They are there for each other over the years as they face the challenges of raising their children, keeping their marriages together, supporting friends through divorce and ultimately through cancer. I believe the cover had a picture of a woman floating in a pool in an inertude with a big floppy hat and a drink.
I'm looking for a book by the name of yellow shoes.
Looking for a Childhood Book? Here's How.
It's about a person that work in one of London airport. It was large and thin. The one I had was hardcover with a removable paper cover. It was a collection of short scary stories that had unique artwork. It was painting and ink that used mostly blacks, grey, blues and red and white, maybe some skin tones. There was a lot of splatters for either blood or stars. She starts to fall fo her boy best friend and she invites him to a gala or a dance and she has a terrible time while he has a good one?
After that they sit on her roof top and talk and he leaves her up there hanging. I think they even dated for a while then broke up and stayed as friends. She wrote him letters I think? The cover had a light blue background with a bright yellow candy heart broken with the title. I really liked the book! A group of girls i think 4 plan to murder a boy that they hate for personal reasons. They plan the murder with great precision so that they murder is not traced back to them and no one except the 4 of them knew about this plan. But before they can commit the murder themselves, the boy is killed in the exact same method that they planned, by someone else.
I'm looking for a children's book 4th, 5th grade where the main character is a boy who lives in a room in a hotel that his father manages. The curse went along the lines of "when this lump of peat burns away, the child will die and go to clay". There were other stories as well like the one about an australian aboriginal medicine man warning a construction crew against building a road through a cursed thicket of trees, of course tragedy strikes and the road is built around the trees in the end, also one about a tree in africa that was known to the locals to strangle anyone who wandered to close at night.
Another with a mummified cat being taken from a tomb only for its spirit to escape its binds through a hole in its throat shocking the collector that brought it along. Another with a boy somewhere in england disappearing seemingly into thin air atop a hill when he was going to milk the cows or something, but his parents and the locals could hear his disembodied voice crying out for help over the following weeks until finally it fades away entirely. There were also 2 stories about ufo's that i can remember involving one plane being slammed into the ground by what seemed like an invisible hand, and another where some airmen keeping watch over a plane graveyard when the ufo appears and one of them decides to hop into a still functional ww2 plane to chase it only to nearly "ram himself up its tailpipe" when it suddenly stops.
It even had a variation of the girl with the ribbon around her neck that involved an artist who couldn't get enough of painting her portrait. The cover of the book was a mix of red and purple color with illustrations of at least 3 of these stories, ribbon girl, medicine, and mummy cat in a sort of collage. I forgot if it involved the term "ghost stories" or "spine chilling" or anything of the sort, there were at least 10 stories that i can remember but i'm pretty sure there were 13 altogether. It was a really fun read and my copy was so old it ended up deteriorating almost completely and my mother apparently threw it out.
I'm looking for the title of a Teen Romance Nook book. It's about a girl that was abused by her birth mother, but was adopted by a doctor and his wife when she was in the hospital due to abuse. She goes to college and meets a boy. The guy comes back to his dorm room and his roommate also has a sock on his door so he goes up to the roof as well. That's how they meet and then they fall in love. I am looking for a romance book that potrays a couple that have a doughter 14 or 15 years old and i think the husband was a lawyer and the wife a teacher.
The husband lost by his choice a case and the wife was upset for that, so he ecided to leave the wife an child and goes to visit his ex girlfriend, wich is an artist. I read this book at but i can't remember the title or the author. Pleas can anyone help me because this is driving me insane and i have spent more than a month trying to find it. I am looking for a childrens book that was read to me in the 80s.
It contained a bunch of stories, but my favorite was called something like 'the naughty moon'. It was about a moon that would sneak into the sky during the day. I'm looking for a book that has a girl floating upside down on the cover. Looking for a Halloween children's book with a witch in a green mask and maybe a skeleton on the front cover. This is so far fetched, but hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about.
There is a group of kids in the middle of nowhere and they have to fend for themselves. The main character is a boy and he has two friends: a girl and a boy. I'm pretty sure him and the girl had something going on Anyways, I remember there was a part where they went underground and there was this giant worm or snake or something that was living underground. That's all I remember. That's it. Searching for a chapter book I used to read as a young girl in elementary school.
I would say anywhere between the years of I vaguely remember the cover of the book picturing a young blonde girl in the foreground, holding a book or notebook of some sort. If I recall correctly she had about shoulder length hair with bangs and a headband on. On the cover it looks as though she is in the woods and she is begrudgingly looking back at what looks like a wooden clubhouse. In this clubhouse I believe can't remember if this is what was actually on the cover or just my imagination there are two girls looking out the window at her.
