Searching for a book you remember reading as a child, college student, or happy dropout, but haven't seen anywhere since? On the Web, there are now numerous ways to expand your hunt beyond Amazon. Abebooks is a consortium that connects you to thousands of used-book stores around the world. Another search site is the Berkeley-based Bookfinder.com. You can also search a growing number of individual stores online, including the Portland-based Powells and Bolerium Books in San Francisco, which specializes in rare books on labor issues and radical history.

Meanwhile, your local library can be a great help, too, thanks to a practice called interlibrary loan. Libraries across the country will lend you books and other materials, creating a vast collection that's easy for you to access. Here's how: If you don't find what you're looking for in your library's catalog, ask a librarian to locate it elsewhere in the huge national loan network. Tell the pros as much about the book as you can. Title and author are most important, but publisher and publication date (or even a good guess at it) can be helpful too. They'll do the rest.

I read a book years ago about a girl who goes to the same college her missing sister did, the girl is sure that someone from the school took/hurt her, she suspects a boy but ends up getting feelings for him? I'm pretty sure she's a theatre student and the book isn't 'Dance of shadows', she never finds her sister. I don't know the name, any help?

Hey! I am trying to find a book where a girl who works at a clothes store finds a ticket to a fancy gala for cine stars in the pocket of one of the dresses to be dry cleaned... She takes the ticket and dresses up and goes to the event pretending to be a family member from the cine circle... There she meets a famous actor who likes her... In the end he finds out who she really is and they decide that they cannot have a relationship... I even remember that the cover of the book- it was light blue with the picture of just half of a girl in a white short dress with her hands on her hips.. They don't show her face - it is just half of her body... And her hair was brown... Someone please help me find this book!:)

Good evening! I've been wracking my brain for hours trying to remember the name of the series. It's about a woman who is cursed to live for a very long time. Her sister was cursed as well. She can turn into a cat and I believe she has nine lives. The woman's daughters were cursed to die before certain birthdays but I can't remember anything after that. I've read the series a long time ago and I watched the show based off of it but I can't remember

Hi I am looking for a book that I read about 5 years ago about a baby being born to a young mother during a storm and the nurse that is assisting with the delivery just found out her son died in a car accident. The story goes on with the boy growing up in a disturbed home and starts seeing satanic images including three-headed snake spitting fire. It kind of ends with him being the chosen one to over the evil in the world. I remember the book having a black cover and the author speaks on the his cover page of suffering from a debilitating disease.

If you believe you know the title of a book that is mentioned in one of the requests below, how do you alert them? For example, on 8/18/16, "Uly" described a book which I'm fairly certain is 'Neverwhere' by Gaiman.

Looking for a sci fi book that i think was written by a woman, it had a man riding a winged tiger like creature, in this planet there were dark skinned blond people that were higher in social status than pale people with dark hair. This human like people had medieval technology, they waged war against each other, they had castles and also a medallion or necklace was important in the story. There were other alien races, i think i remember a gnome like creatures that lived in caves and worked with minerals.

I am looking for the name and author of a book about a woman getting sexually assaulted, but not really knowing she is getting sexually assaulted, by I think some sort of doctor who sneaks into her house at night a few times per week and possibly drugs her to the point of her not remembering what happened, but feeling sore, etc. It sounds like it could be a Dean Koontz book maybe, but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks

It was a mystery novel a friend recommended to me about a woman with amnesia, and her doctor's trying to help her remember what happened, and it turned out her friend was murdered by her brother who was in love with her but jealous that she was marrying someone else, and the woman with amnesia was the only survivor of his attempted triple murder. Oh and the brother and murderer was also a priest, iirc.

I am looking for a book about a kid named Daniel (I think) who is in love with his best friend emma(again think that is the name). He is the subject of her film that she is making. The story starts off with Guy sitting in jail after he got caught with his brothers drugs. Through out the story he goes and helps Emma and at one point he has a guy juggle chainsaws over him. Also he kisses Emma but she slaps him but at the end of the book I think they get together. The cover art is of a boy with his hands in his packed and chainsaws around the edges. I think the cover is along the lines of "the ___ life of Daniel" maybe but I am not for sure. Any help I would be very great fun for. Thank you

Looking for a book I read as a teenager in the 1970s. I think it was was quite a fat book. From memory, the story was set in a remote jungle. A billionaire invited a number of wealthy people to take part in a hunt to the death where they were the hunted. The last survivor would be the winner. That's about all I can remember but for some reason it has stuck with me for 40 years. It was a new story in the 1970s. It is not "The Most Dangerous Game".

8/16/2016 12:47:07 AM

I read this book about 2-4 years ago, when it was recently published (I think). It was the first book in a series (a trilogy maybe? I never read the others). It was set in New Orleans in the '20s (I'm not actually clear on the time period - it might have been earlier), and it featured a young woman who had just moved there. She arrives in the train station and a young man tries to steal her suitcase by getting up close to her and kissing her (I can't remember if he actually kisses her, also whether or not he gets away with the suitcase - I think he does because I remember her running after him). The young man ends up an important character and I think the two become reluctant (on her part) allies. The heroine is staying with her uncle or great uncle or something and I think he either works in or owns an old dusty museum. The girl also goes out to jazz clubs. There's a chapter or two told from the guy's perspective where it describes him walking down a street and a blind musician is sitting in the place he always does - the guy is friends with him but this time the musician is worried about something and acting a bit odd. My memory of the actual plot line is hazy, but it's supernatural. I remember something about a haunted house, and the devil or a demon (or some evil being trying to set itself or something loose) and the sky - viewed through the ceiling of the old haunted house that's been torn open? There's something about an old thick book maybe?

A historical romance where the female character is hiding from her abusive husband. As she is running from him a little girl is abandoned by her mom and she takes her in. She starts a relationship with a man and I am pretty sure his name is Hugh. The female character is bigger and curvy. Her husband would often refuse her food and abuses her not having a child. Hugh the male love interest is scared to have a child because he has lost a woman in childbirth. The female character is said to have been barren but it turns out she isn't and gets pregnant.

It's a romance suspense book. The female character's name might be Anastasia. She is a writer and she lives like in the mountains and the book is set in the winter. She is in danger from a male criminal who is obsessed with her. There is several parts in the book where it will be him having imagining that she is in love with him and has a relationship with him. I can't remember anything about the male love interest of the female character except that he was trying to protect her.

I'm looking for a book about a girl whose dad is getting remarried. She does not want him to, so when her stepmom buys her her blue bridesmaids dress, she decides to sabotage the wedding. She basically orders a custom-made goth dress. -Other things that I remember about it: 1. When she tried on the blue dress it fit perfectly, but she didn't one anyone to know so she stashed it in her closet. 2. Her closet only has one thing in it. 3. She lives at her mom's, and her mom doesn't care for her dad to remarry either. 4. At the end, the girl decides not to sabotage the wedding, and throws away the dress. (I think)

I'm struggling to find the title of a book that I read when I was in primary school. It's about a young girl who is being looked after by an elderly woman and the woman teaches the young girl about astral projection; eventually the girl leaves her physical body but when she returns it turns out it's already got another person's spiritual body in it - the elderly woman who tricked her. The old woman had been doing this for years so she remains youthful, the little girl (now in the feeble old woman's body) has to take the old woman (in the little girl's body) to school to keep up the charade and is even abused by the old woman. Could somebody PLEASE tell me the name of this book? Sorry if my description of it is bad, I haven't read it in years.

I'm looking for two different books that I read when I was younger. One was a book with a collection of stories about young girls who did amazing and heroic things- one of the stories in the book was about a young girl (she may have been blind) that saved her brother from a fire, I seem to recall something about wrapping cold wet towels around their heads and crawling near the floor to avoid the smoke. The other book I have spent hours searching for is a book about a young girl and her brother that were kidnapped (I think by their father). At one point in the novel they were in the trunk of his car and they stopped at a gas station or something by the woods and the kids hop out and run into the woods. Also, there was something about a cabin in the woods? Something about the young girl using the light from the refrigerator to see, but worried that the man (her father?) would see the light from outside. Please help me find these books!Thank you!

Impatient with poor care given to old folk at nursing home, he loads them into back of truck, takes them home to his large empty home, where they all learn to tolerate and take care of each other.

And though noone knew the book I was looking for I am surprised how many do find a match. The book I was looking for was Enduring Love by Ian McEwan by the way.

Only to have the house broken into and the entire family murdered brutally, the murderers, two males, would wear the skin of the family ( i think). the young girl managed to escape the two guys, she made it to her father, a cop, and the girl was put into protective custody with her father and the guys continued to pursue her and almost kill her father. Does anymore know what this book is?

Looking for a book that had to do with a zombie outbreak. I remember that it had to do within a city and humans were losing hope until one day a group that have been living in a building saw a young teen alive and well walking among the dead and not getting attack by the undead. The beginning started off with a small group doing a supply run in department stores. All is going well, until one them makes a noise that attract the undead and they get attack. All but one or two survive. I never got to finish it as I was in the middle of moving and the book got lost somewhere during the move. I have been searching for another copy for 2 years now and I can't find it cause I can't remember the name or the author of the book. I thought it was called 'The City of the Living Dead' but I haven't luck with that title. Hope someone is able to help out.

Back in 2nd grade (1997-98) there was this illustrated childrens book that I remember seeing other kids reading (wish I read it myself, I don't remember too much about it) I don't remember what the book was about or what the moral was, all I remember were some vague details. A girl and her mom (I think) were playing around with food; I don't remember too much, but the girl placed food in certain areas of her body for fun; the only thing I remember for sure was that she put bacon between her toes. I think that near the end, they made a meal out of all that food. It was a very strange book, and I can't find anything on the internet about it; if anybody remembers it, I would greatly appreciate being able to find that odd white whale from my childhood.

He starts dating this girl and then scary things from his book start happening real life. I think he almost gets run over in a mall parking lot at some point. And then he has to rescue the girl and ends up fighting someone on s bridge just like in his books. Things from his books keep happening and turns out someone was doing it on purpose to set him up or something. Please help. I read this book in middle school and have not found it again. Thanks!!!

hello i read a book when i was in Junior High, i know in the beginning this girl and her brother were pickpockets on the subway and then she met an old man on the beach and they grew really close over the years, she took care of him and would read to him while his family apparently "didnt have time", his family liked her and everything. then when he died he left her EVERYTHING, he owned a string of hotels and plenty of money and left it all to her and nothing to his family so they took her to court claiming she was a gold digger and the judge sided with the family and she was left with nothing but then she worked hard and within 10 years she was the owner of all the hotels that were rightfully left to her by the old man. if this helps when she was going to court her lawyer told her she needed to dress more "classy " like she had money and not to do anything with her hair so the next day in court she came dressed in a skirt/suit and had cut all her hair off :) i also remember someone named will in the book might have been the old mans name i really loved this book it was so inspirational!

Book starts with a teenage girl believed to be pregnant through immaculate conception..people begin to make pilgrimages to her town to see the modern Virgin Mary, thinking she will give birth to Jesus reborn. A report begins to investigate and finds a woman believed to be giving birth to the devil - when the woman has the child they see the eyes of all those in hell in the infant's eyes and throw the baby off a cliff in a remote village (maybe In Italy). I believe somehow the reporter/protagonist actually gives birth to modern day savior and it turns out the teenager was raped while drunk on prom night, leading to her pregnancy. The closing scene of the book involves a teenage believed to be Satan walking by a car crash - it is suggested his presence called it. The reporter's son/Jesus walks by and somehow saves the passengers. What is this book called?? Please assist!

my friend and I were reminiscing recently and both recalled a book she was required to read in college over a decade ago for some sociology class. it was in some rural setting (NC mountains or something of the sort. a man wanders up on a car where two young people are dead from carbon monoxide poisoning. He takes the girl from the car back home with him as a companion. We cannot remember the book, but we feel like it was possibly on a banned list when it was written. She remembers having to dig around to locate a hard copy for the class before finally getting an old, weathered edition.

The book is a horror or thriller book following a families timeline and it goes through different generations. I believe it starts in the 1500-1600's and the beginning story a the whole town dies and this family movies. It follows the family timeline and jumps from generation to generation showing the all bad things that happen to their family.?

I read a gothic novel about 40 years ago and don't know the title or author. The heroine visits the (?) Dower house in Devon where her former governess is living. But when she gets there, the woman is missing. The next day the heroine goes on to the manor house to make inquires but the family/residents stonewall. Then the plot thickens. Does this sound familiar to anyone? As I remember, it was in the style of Dorothy Eden or Jane Aiken Hodge.

I read this book not so long ago,about 1/2 years ago. It was about a young girl who lived with her mum, and they move to the family island for the summer, which is owned by the grandpa. Each family has their own house within the island. The young girl falls in love with one of the friends another member of the family has brought along. They go on boat trips to the local town and spend a lot of time on the beach. Somehow, the main house catches fire and burns down, and it manages to be the girls fault. I can't remember the name of the book so if anyone has any ideas please let me know, I'd love to re read, thanks💗

I read this book a long time ago. It was some fantasy book for young adults I think. I don't remember much about it, but there was this underground society and everyone lived in fear of like, this darkness or smoke or just something that, if you were touched by it, it would take something from you. One of the main characters was this boy who had been touched by it, and it had taken his lungs, so he had to wear some kind of mask thing in order to breathe. At the end of the book I think they all got helped.

Hi - I'm looking for a book I read around 1988, about a camp for young teenage girls learning to become jockeys, who were all addicted to drugs and basically being sexually abused by their educators. It was edgy YA before the term "YA" existed. Anyone know what I'm talking about? I'm writing my own book with similar themes and would love to reference that again. Thanks!

POSTAPOCALYPTIC BOOK Honestly not sure on timeline that I read this book but I think it was about a year or more ago. It starts off with the main character describing how her father told her to take her sister and go to their cabin because of this big ordeal that affects the way of life, she knows how to hunt and survive off the land. One day her sister is taken by what I believe are called snatchers? They also kill the family dog because the older sister always left it with her little sister for protection and when trying to chase down kidnappers on a hidden motorcycle she meets a boy trying to save his brother. I believe they're being taken to a place where they are forced to kill one other for the wealthier's entertainment. Can't really remember much past that

Hi I'm looking for a book i read a few years ago. I don't remember a lot about it but I know it has a girl trapped in a doll. I think its set in like the 18000's or early 1900's. She from a rich family and gets kidnapped or something and a poor boy finds the doll and uses it to do puppet shows. I don't know if this is from the same book or not but I also remember a poor girl who built walls out of newspaper or something so that she could have her and space. She was also embarrassed because her dress was too short when the police came to talk to her.

I've got one for yall. My mom picked out a book for me to read one day (early 2000s) at the library. I want to say it was a teen fiction novel about a native american princess of some type who has powers i think, and something happens to where she has left home. She gets paired with a wolf somehow and i dont remember if they can communicate telepathically or at all, but the wolf more or less protects her and the girl later finds that shes in love with the wolf, who is, herself also a woman (i think like a shapeshifter or something?) I think the girl is resistant to it at first and then realizes that she loves the wolf's soul or something like that, so her gender doesnt matter. I want to say there were forrests and cold weather they were lost/travelling in, and something similar to totems were important to her. Idk if im mixing a bunch of random things together, all i remeber is telling my mom about the book she'd picked out for me and she was astonished she'd accidently picked out a book about two girls' romance for her young child.

Hey everyone, I have been searching for a book, I have no idea who has written it but I remember certain details about it and I would LOVE some help finding it again. All I can really remember about this book was that a woman was at a high school or college reunion and was kidnapped by an old crush (not 100% sure on this detail about the kidnapper) and taken to the woods, down a long dirt road to kidnappers house and she was chained but could still move around a little, and I think she does end up escaping in time before he either tries to make her marry him or before he kills her. Sorry I don't have a lot of info to go off of, I just remember it was a really good book and has been so many years since I have read it and it would be great if someone can help!

Hey everyone. I am 21 now but I am trying to find a book I read in maybe 4th or 5th grade. I only remember bits and pieces but here is what I remember; it involves a boy who goes on some sort of adventure. Not sure what his destination or purpose was but I remember he finds a bear or a bearlike creature that I want to say was named Bo, but maybe not. Anyways he befriends it. Now this was a fantasy book as well. This bear saves the boy from I think these little orange fur things that kill the bear but the boy is safe up in a tree. I also remember at some point the boy is in tunnels and some creature is following him and I remember this being scary. I also think there is some land or kingdom or ship maybe that is held by a chain and floats high in the sky. That's about all I can remember. Hope someone can help me!

Hi all - I'm going nuts trying to find a book, am hoping you can help. Sometime after 1978 or so, paperback novel about a woman with 'faintly oriental features' (almond shaped eyes, dark straight hair, 'peachy' complexion) that she played up with makeup and oriental style dresses. She might have worked in publishing, her name might have been Lee. She had been raped, was afraid of the color red, falling in love with a man but unable to consummate due to rape trauma. I may be combining elements of two different stories by the same author, but I think she had a past life and had been in love with the same guy then. In that life, she was blonde, wore her hair long and plaited. I can't remember her name. His name may have been Simon, and I think they were Vikings (stop laughing - it's a better read than it sounds like). In that timeline, she is in labor, and Simon tells her to stop being embarassed and yell if it hurts. I've wracked my brain, but can't bring up the book title(s) or author, and have been unsuccessful searching the 'net. Does this sound familiar to anyone? If so, please drop a line to me at lizfs@yahoo.com and thank you in advance.

Hi this is my first time trying this so here it goes. I've been looking for a fantasy book that I read in 2003, it was an older book and I can't remember the title, author, character names, or descriptions (obviously why I'm here). But i do remember bits and pieces of the story. The main girl (H) has magical powers and she marries a prince (K). The powers are always described as colored ribbons that intertwine and weave together with other women's powers (as far as I can remember women were the only ones with powers like that). There was also a king across the ocean I think who had like 5 daughters or so and his wife was pregnant and hoping for a boy because she didn't want to be killed like his previous wives for giving him girls. They travel across the ocean (?) To the other kingdom and the wife and daughters bring like 4 other pregnant women with them to try and ensure that no matter what there would be a boy. After they all give birth the king finds out the plan and sets his wife on fire for trying to deceive him while she lay on her bed on the ship. The ship burns with her in it. Later on his oldest daughter (B) I think has 2 or 3 boys and I think her husband gets killed somehow. Well the main girl (H) and the now king (K) can't have kids so (B) tricks (K) into coming to her castle somehow. She drugs him or something and sleeps with him. She then proceeds to kinda mock her mother and her step mothers for only having girls and (H) for not being able to conceive at all. He eventually gets back to his kingdom and his wife (H) finds out what happened. I remember specifically there was a scene where she was sitting down thinking and she looked into the smooth red jewl on her ring and she saw fire and destruction then the ring spit fire at her and she felt it burn for a few seconds but when she looked nothing, her skin wasn't burned and her ring was normal. Later she goes to (B) castle and it ends up burning down, she takes the baby boy that (B) conceived with (K) but not before being burned where her ring had "burned" her earlier. She then takes the baby back home to. Raise as her own. And that's all I remember. It may seem kinda confusing but hey I haven't read it in 13 years.

Looking for a work of fiction. Published in 1980s maybe. Don't remember the title or author. The book begins as an agent or spy of some sort gets home from a long trip and, exhausted, is reading his mail. He is immediately called away for another mission before he gets any rest. The plot takes him from I believe the Washington DC area where I he lives, and the book opened to Halifax, maybe then to San Francisco and another location and ends in Moscow. I'm sure of Halifax and Moscow, but although there were other locations I don't exactly recall where. The ending -- SPOILER ALERT -- has him finding the Russian princess Anastasia, the last Romanov and the only survivor of the purge in 1917.

Hi. I'm looking for a YA book series that I read in elementary school (late 90's, early 00's). It centered on five or six different girls who were all friends, and they all excelled at a different sport. At the time I read it, there were six books. Each book focused on a different girl, but the other girls were also included. I remember the "main" girl had two books focused on her, and she played baseball and hockey. She was stubborn and could be rude. Another girl played basketball, and she was really tall, and there was a short and shy girl who either played softball or soccer. The books also came with "trading cards" of the girls. I can't find the series anywhere. I can't recall the title of the series or the author, but I know it was a woman. She visited our school (in Troy, NY), I bought all six books in one go, and she signed all of them.

Her father, his grandfather, was well to do they all had strained relationships with each other. A neighbor befriends the boy. The boy goes to the family vacation home at a Lake in either Michigan or Wisconsin. He ends up back in Bermuda and I think confronts his grandfather. There was some mystery???? Who was the real father, what were the friendly neighbors intentions, why was the grandfather estranged?

Hi, I'm looking for a book I read between 2003 to 2006. It may be a few years older then that though. I'm assuming that it is a kids/juvenile (possibly historical) fiction. It is about a girl who is living by the sea and is warned not to go swimming during a storm. One day there is a storm and the girl can see a small rowboat with 3 or 4 kids in it. After the storm she finds them and they become friends. She goes back to the kids house and meets their mother. I'm not sure what happens next, all I know is that by the end of the book the girl discovers that the kids had actually died years ago in a storm as they hadn't been able to get the row boat back to shore. She then goes back to the house where they had lived and finds it in ruins.

Later in in the story the main character is walking around the school at night and he finds someone dead on the stair( or they were chasing him and he fell and died). He also finds a door to the outside of the school where he realizes that it's in the middle of the woods. There's security around the school making sure no one gets out too. In the end I think he meets the headmaster or something. Please help me find this book. I would really appreciate it!

This book I read a few years ago (I think it was fairly new then) was a young adult fiction novel. I remember the main character was a teenage girl. She had a little baby brother. They were visiting a relative I believe and the relative lived in a super old house. There was an object(I can't remember if it was a rig or what) but it had some significance to the girl. Basically the plot of the novel is her baby brother gets switched out with a changeling and she's trying to get him back the whole book. The girl discovered tunnels below the house and I think there was a girl she found in the tunnels who was also a changeling. In the end she gets to the realm her brother was taken to and somehow Barrera the object or something like that to get her brother back. When he comes out she realizes that time has passed much quicker in this realm and he has new fairy-type people as parents and his parents beg her not to take him back since he's their only child after their son died. Her brother is about 5 now and doesn't want to leave nor remembers her. She decides not to take him back and cries.

I read a book in the late 60's. I borrowed it from my high schools library. It was a young adult romance. The main character is Jennifer. She lives in a house with many siblings( I think a farm). Jennifer's parents died and she hides their death so that she and her siblings are not split up. The book is about her secret, how hard she had to work to provide for the siblings and of course a boy. The book is one of those teen romances that end with a kiss from a boy.

I've been looking for a book from my childhood. And for some reason either "across the world" or "around the world" sticks out in my head. It's about a boy who is being punished by his parents and is sent to live with his grandparents on a farm in the Midwest I believe. He learns the value of work while there and meets a girl. I've been looking for it non stop as I would love for my son to read it as I did when I was a child. Any help would be great. Thank you!

I've been looking for a book from my childhood for years and would appreciate any help to finally find it From what I can remember, the book is based on a person (Not even sure of gender) who kind of 'saves up' time/memories For instance, when the character is going through a dull period he (let's just assume it's a he) saves that time to visit later, to relive that time at a later date Making him able to relive saved up time from his childhood, during his adult hood From what I can remember the character is busy reliving the saved up time and dies in the current time I read this book as a child and would absolutely love to be able to re-read it Thanks for any help at all

The book I've been looking for for years, is a comedic book about a woman who has trouble understanding she died and I believe goes to her own funeral. Afterward she goes back to her father and stepmother's house. She hates her stepmom and tries to figure out how to throw something at her. She then tries to talk to her dad who's sitting in a chair and he can't hear it see her. She walks over to a mirror and can't see herself and becomes sad. At some point a talking dog comes into the picture and constantly annoys her in a comedic way. I remember it was a series and I remember the cover was yellow and I believe had a cartoon woman on it. I didn't get to read much because it was a library book and my aunt had borrowed it and it was due back before I could finish it. I've been looking for many years now (like 11 or so). Please help!

She then finds out he wasn't who he pretended to be...a no good guy. She then pairs up with a man she meets at a party. He happens to be the young man at the grocer who gave her a pear daily. They team up to find out what her husband was into and then their lives are in jeopardy. It is a suspense novel with a love story combined. Believe it was written by a woman.I would like to read it again if I could find out the title. Appreciate any help given. Susan

I've been searching for years for a book I read decades ago, most likely some time between 1975 and 1985. The book was a love story that was set in contemporary England, at a manor house of which some of the rooms were rented out to be used for conferences. The nobleman who owned the house kept his wife drugged and captive. The tour bus driver somehow discovers her and they fall in love and he plans to help her escape (with the aid of the cook, I believe.) Their story of love and escape is a repetition of history; centuries ago, the nobleman's wife of that time fell in love with a commoner, who also tried to help her escape her cruel husband. In both cases, the wife ends up having her feet cut off and the commoner/busdriver is beheaded. In the modern version of this tragedy, the wife loses her feet because she is bitten by a viper or asp that is at the manor house as part of some scientific/zoological conference, and the bus driver is decapitated as their vehicle (the bus?) crashes and his head is (I think) cut off by the windshield. As cheesy as this plot sounds, it was very well written and convincing, and better than the average romance novel. It's repeatedly driven me crazy that I can't track it down, which, I guess, makes me insane several times over. My deepest gratitude to anyone who remembers this book and give me a title or author.

The book I'm looking for was possibly an author's first book. It had to do with racism. I believe she was a white woman that stayed with African-American families in a certain city and wrote about their experiences, particularly those of the African-American men. She illustrated how they get pulled into the legal system and can never extricate themselves out from underneath it. I think I heard about it on NPR.

I'm looking for a detective novel from the 1950′s. I don't remember its name or who wrote it. It's one of those 50 cent pulp novels. It has a normal mystery novel mystery, and also a mystery of why people treat the detective weirdly. The story is told in the first person, and many conversations just seem a little off. The last sentence reveals the answer to the deeper mystery of the book by revealing that the detective is a woman. Because of this, no one ever refers to the narrator/protagonist as her, she, etc., during the book And I believe her name is never stated, either, unless she has a name like Gabriel, Leslie, or Ashleigh, that can be a name for a man or a woman. I have been on a quest to find this book for years, to no avail! Every time I think I have a lead, it falls flat and I'm back to square one. Help!

Hello. I am looking for a book that I read 37 years ago. It was about a woman living with her three daughters and a man took refuge in her premises. The daughters were different in character and one was a pedant who wandered among some ruins. There was an amorous affair between the mother and the stranger. I seem to remember that they lived on a farm and sea was near. I hope somebody can remember from such scanty details. I am sure of one thing. the pedant daughter was so immersed in books that she would even wear her clothes inside out and not notice at all.

Hi there, I'm searching for a short story. I believe it was a first work by a science fiction writer: A man wakes up with an old, healed, C-shaped scar on his face. He has no memory of how he got it or where he is. On his journey to try and figure out what's happened to him the scar starts to itch and swell, eventually opening up into a fresh wound as he travels around and is eventually drawn to a specific hotel room. This is where things change - he realises that time has been moving backwards and there is an incident (explosion/apocalypse?!) about to happen. He is laying on the floor looking up at the hotel room number, which has a metal C in it, and he realises that the C is about to be blown off the door into his face and he will die. That's how it ends. Any help would be great! Thanks :)

-Basic Information: Not sure of the books actual published date. I read it around 2005-2008. But I don't think it was very much older than when I read it. children's novel I found it at the library in the children's section. It was a fairly bigger book. Can't remember if it had actual chapters but I'm assuming it did because it was not a picture book or anything similar to Junie B Jones style. - Anything at all you remember about the book: I can't remember the title. I think the cover was a little girl and a road behind her. It was a drawing or painting defiantly not cartoon. It was most likely 100+ pages. It was a flimsy hardback. The main character was a young girl, probably around the age of 3-5th grade. She lived in the country. I know for sure she lived with her grandma. I can't remember if her mom was in the picture. I know her dad wasn't. She also had a friend in school, a boy her age. I can't remember if he was a different skin color than her or he was poorer than her. I just remember he was different from her somehow. Also during the book and there is a Halloween party one night at school. I think either the main character or her friend dressed up using a card board box. I can't remember the title or the author. This was the first book I read that started my my love for reading and for the life of me cannot remember what it's called.

She then meets an evil old king, who she sucks his energy to help her hunger. When the king dies, she becomes queen and she falls in love with the prince who becomes King. It is a trilogy and I would say a teen book. I think the sister of the prince name is Poppy but I am not sure on that. I don't remember the whole series, so this is all I know. Thanks!

About two years ago I read this amazing book and it was great, it was about this half-Romanian girl who lived with her mom, her deadbeat step-father, her two sisters, and three brothers I'm pretty sure. And throughout the book she keeps talking about how she once ate spiders and it was disgusting. Anyway, she meets this boy name Logan, I think, and another boy. The other boy was older, in fact he was the older brother of one of her friends boyfriend. So Logan likes the main character very much and is the social outcast of the school but still gives the main character either moped or motorcycle rides to and from school. He eventually invites her over for beer and such, then she sees his dads gun collection. A little later into the story we find out that his dad is obsessed with guns. After her friends boyfriends older brother tries to get in her pants she runs away. I think Logan and her went on a date and it ended up with him beating up this security guard at a lighthouse until the security guard was bruised and bloodied. So him and the main character stop talking for a while until he makes a grand gesture so set off doves in her art class and paint her flowers (roses, I think), so they're finally talking again and then one day at like four am she wants to call him to tell him that she loves him but decides against it and says that she'd call him later. BUT, what she didn't know is that at the same time Logan's dad went crazy and started to threaten to shoot and kill his family. I'm fairly convinced that the dad killed the youngest child and I am sure he killed Logan. Logan died protecting his family and ultimately the dad shot himself when he finished killing a portion of his family. Then when it was announced he died the school held a ceremony for him where the main character disclosed how much she loved him and that all of the people wearing black in the stands, crying and weeping when they didn't even know him were all fakes because they spent so many years tormenting him and ignoring him. So she cursed them out and it was awesome. So I remember most of the book but I can't even remember names and the title and the author? Somebody please help me.

Back in 1965 I was in juvenile hall for truancy and began to read a book in fiction with the approximate text: "Gerald (Not the actual name as I forgot it) was caught eating ants again and Jim, his stepfather, intended to teach Gerald a lesson. He found Gerald but Gerald ran and Jim began to chase him. Gerald headed for the back porch door and Jim slammed the door shut but it was too late as Gerald managed to run through the door and place his hand on the door jamb to pivot and hit the long flight of stairs to escape Jim. Jim stood on the back porch knowing that he could not catch Gerald. Jim thought about looking for Gerald in the future. Looking at the floor and door jamb, Jim knew that all he had to look for was a boy with a missing finger. Gerald's finger was still on the door jamb just as the door slammed shut and severed it. It was on the floor. " Creepy, I know. I was released from incarceration so I could not finish the book. Anyone ever encounter such a creepy paperback?

I seek a book, and this one was given to me long ago, but it has since been lost, and I sought to pick it up again but cannot remember the title or the author for the life of me! I can only vaguely remember the plot, and some of the characters in it. It is an erotic novel, or perhaps it should be described as smut as it does get graphic. It's about this young girl, who discovers her sexuality at a precious age. She becomes promiscuious, but her encounters eventually get her caught and sent away to an all-girls school. As if that could stop her, as she has encounters with another girl, "Cherry", a guard at the school, and even the prude headmistress. Other characters she becomes involved with are her butler, whom she blackmails after catching him stealing the family silver, and even her own brother. Anyone?

Hi. I'm looking for a book I read a few years ago. It was probably written within the last 10 or 15 years, but I'm not positive on that. It's about a boy named John, who's maybe 15 or 16, and has been framed for the murder of a popular girl while at a party. I think John was kind of a loner and this girl was one of the only people at his school that was actually nice to him.John was high/drunk and I think he and the girl had hooked up. When the girl is found to be brutally raped and murdered (it's the next morning and I think John was found in the room with her, having maybe pasted out). He is sure that he didn't kill her, but is charged anyway. Despite being a minor, he is charged as an adult. While in prison, he continues to insist that he is innocent. I remember that he is sexually abused by another inmate, who's called Zebra. There is a scene of John during a visit with his mother where John has to sit on an inflatable donut because he's in too much pain to be able to sit down. His mother is only one that has visited him so far (I feel like he has been there for a number of years when this visit takes place). Somehow,he or his mother convince his sister, Candice, who's a criminal defense attorney, to look into his case (I think she's skeptical about his innocence). The book ends with John being released (I think) when it is found to be John's cousin, Michael, who committed the crime. The knife that killed the girl was in his closet (or had been there at the time of the murder, but I think his mother, John's aunt, helped her son to frame John). Michael for some reason goes by the nickname Woody, at least when the boys were younger. Michael is a police officer and the father of a son with disabilities. That's about all I can remember, but I would really like to find this book. Thanks.

Hello. I am looking for a book of virtues. It is not by Mr. Bennett. It is hard cover and larger than normal. It is light brown in color and I think that there was a mouse on the cover. I can only remember two stories. One is about a poor mouse family that works hard for their grain but a thief continuously steals it. Finally, a hole is placed/nibbled and the father mouse follows the trail to the lazy mouse's home. The second story is about two sisters. One is lazy and the other hardworking. They were invited to a picnic but the former ended up not attending because she was busy mending her dress. A quote from that story is "Finally she chose her yellow dress because it was missing the least buttons and only had one small tear".

Years go by and the boy leaves town with a town prostitue and her son. She is killed. I remember the son describes how he tied a rope to his ankle and to the bed then to the dog. In case the police ever found them to take him away. The girl has grown up to be a writer. That's all I remember I think it's supposed to be a romance novel but it was so long ago I'm not sure.

I am looking for a how to draw book--no title or author . I picked up a paperback book in 80's. It showed how to draw almost all parts of the body in different stages of aging-from infant to elderly. The cover had various pictures of each I remember a small infant drawing in the corner I think. It showed how to draw muscles, hands and such in different stages of aging. The pictures were nicely detailed not sketchy. I had it till my child used it for a school project and never brought it back home. I want to replace it but I am having trouble finding it ..the book was full of illustrations on almost every page. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

Oh, and I think when the girl is found in the woods (adding on to previous post!) she acts more like an animal than a human and doesn't talk, growls, etc. and the family that takes her in slowly teaches her how to act like a human. Thanks!!! :D

I'm looking for a book I read as a girl. All I remember is there is a little girl who is found in the woods, she has been alone there for a while, and she is 'adopted' by a family. When they first bring her home they give her a bath and I remember that the bath water was black with dirt. There may or may not have been a girl her age in the adopted family... She goes to school etc, has a hard time and there are parts where she looks in the mirror and sees a beautiful fairy-like woman in the mirror who helps her when she is sad and talks to her. Then if I remember correctly it turns out that woman in the mirror is actually her real mother or herself or something like that? Well that's all I remember but I would really love to get a hold of the story!! Any help would be so very appreciated! Thank you! :D <3

I'm looking for two books because my memory sucks. First one is an ebook I read online a few years ago. It's about a girl who comes home from school to find out she has an arranged marriage. She moves in with the guy and his family, who are some type of royalty and I think he's a vampire? They end up getting an apartment together and I specifically remember a scene where they get in a fight and she goes for a walk by herself and the dude is freaking out. It was a PDF book, I don't think it was published but I enjoyed it. Second book I read as a kid that has toyed with my memory for 20 years. It's about a girl who's parents died and she goes to live with her uncle I think in a big old creepy house. House is haunted, she's standing outside and looks up to see a young girls face in the 2nd floor window. I think the book had a yellow and brown cover. The little girl was a brunette. Sorry I know that's not a lot. I read it in late 80's early 90's. This book has drove me nuts for years!! Any help would be much appreciated!!!

Looking for a book I listened to on audio. I believe it was around 2005. The character speaking was a man. It starts off where he is going into a building and is accused of some thing I believe mistaken identity. He flees. There is a woman involved. They end up in the same places. It is government related. He travels in Europe and I know he spends a lot of time in Italy, because the character ended up speaking in an Italian accent, pretending to be Italian. Thats all I can remember. Thanks.

I'm looking for a story that was told to me many times as a kid. As this story may not be accurate, here is what it's about... A king had three daughters; a brunette, a redhead and a blonde. One day this man went to the kind to ask for one of his daughters to marry. So the man married the blonde. He lived in a large home with one room she as forbidden to enter. He poisened her with tea. He then asked the kind to marry his second daughter. He marryed the redhead..... (same story as with the blonde). He asked to marry the brunette. But was not successful in murdering her, as she would outwit him. At the end, he dies and they hung his body in tree. This story could be far-off the original sorry but maybe you can help. Thanks!

The character also kills someone by having them stand in front of a fighter jet while he triggers the radar, thus giving the person cancer later in life (see, I told you it was weird). That's about all I remember, I keep thinking it was a foreign writer, but I could be mistaken. I would really like to retread this book, But have no clue as to tittle or author. Help!!

I am looking for a juvenile book (sorry, I don't know the title) that was published in the 1980s or 1990s (it was read to me in 1991/1992). It revolves around a teenager (I am pretty sure in high school) who was adopted as a baby who is diagnosed with cancer. She needs I think a bone marrow transplant, so she needs to find her biological parents. I think the tagline on the cover was 'Why me?'

It's about this couple holidaying in Mediterranean Europe (about the 1930s I would guess, but could be wrong) who begin an unconventional sexual relationship, and start to share the same physical identity (i.e. they both cut their hair short and dye it blonde, they wear androgynous clothes). That's all I can remember. Any suggestions of the title would be much appreciated. Thanks

Hello everyone. I'm looking for a book I read almost 30 years ago. It's a young adult novel, realistic fiction, set in the Depression. It's about a girl who is constantly afraid of being kidnapped and she goes on vacation to the country with her family. She actually does get kidnapped by a moonshiner, but she's okay. Her father is a pastor, I think. She has an adopted sister. The girl explores her feelings and fears. The book was very well written and I would love to share it with my daughter who is 12 years old. Thank you!

I'm looking for a novel I read ages ago - probably in the 90's. Don't know when it was published though. It was about a man who was bored, married and had a boring, dead end job in London. He considered himself a 'little grey man' and used to catch the train to work (in London??) every day. Then one day he comes home and at a dinner party his wife puts on he has a meltdown, acts really badly and I can't remember what, except pretty soon after that, maybe even the next day he just leaves his job and takes off travelling - mainly just in England and then I think to the continent too (Europe). He has various adventures, and then comes home (wife etc obviously now around) and then realises he doesn't want to be home and makes some arrangement with a truck driver to take him off on more travels. That's where the book ends. The title I am sure had something to do with Goodbye Moonlight or something and I was certain it was written by Dirk Bogarde - but I cannot find it listed when I search his books. At any rate, it was definitely an actor who wrote it because I remember being surprised, not realising that he also wrote books. I originally read it because it was in a bookshelf at my dad's house, but as I say, that was years ago. Does anyone have any idea what this book is? Thanks!

NEED HELP! I have been looking for a book for so many years - does it sound familiar to anyone? It's a children's book, from the 80s I believe. It's about a little girl, and is beautifully illustrated with images of fall/autumn from what I remember. It's just really about this girl's life - I remember she talks about tracing the patterns of a rug with her finger, I think about splashing in puddles or something with rain, maybe something with fall leaves. It was a hardback book, horizontally read. The cover, if I remember correctly, had a picture of the girl and fall leaves in a frame, then the rest was purple maybe? ANY INFO would be so helpful! I've looked everywhere online but don't get far without the title or author - thank you!

So, I'm looking for this book I read as a child,it was shorter, like a children's book. It was set around some war time, and this mother sends her daughter into the woods because of an attack (?), she sends her with a piece of cake, and says to eat a bite a day, and come home when it is gone. Through girl meets these people in the woods, I think k there were thinking girls, and stays with them, and eventually finishes the cake, and when she returns home, years and years have passed, and her mother is old, and thought the girl had died.

Okay so, I've been trying to find this book for awhile now, but the problem is I can't remember the name or author.. Or hardly what it's about. I'm not even sure if the details I DO remember are right. I'm pretty sure it had two sisters in it, I don't think they got along. Ones name was Susan? She wasn't the "good" one I think. They lived in some town and their parents (I think) worked in some kind of factory. (Mill factory maybe?) and I think at one point when things were happening in the book, the factory burned down. And I remember something about one of the sisters being out in the town when it was dark, and that was bad I think, because of whatever was happening in the book. Like I said I don't know if this info is even right but it's what I think I can remember. If anyone possibly knows of it, I'd love that! I think it was written between 2000-2009. Again sorry for the awful details.

I am searching for book that I read around 8-10 years ago. It was about a young girl who had an amazing ability of storytelling and recalling memories. Her mother died while giving birth leaving the father to take care of her alone. She was smarter than the kids at school and even out smarted her teacher at times. She also had a friend (boy) he never spoke to anyone, not even his own mother since the day his father mysteriously disappeared. There is a tree next to her window that her mother planted before her birth that is extremely important. I don't remember if it was a cherry or apple tree... but one day her friend goes missing (the boy) and this talking bird appears. I believe this tree is a portal into another world. A dreamland of sorts and she ventures with the bird to find her friend. I believe they also find the boys father, who is the creator of the dreamworld and an evil scientist or something.

I really don't remember much about the book I read, which never happens. It's definitely a tip-of-the-tongue moment. The book was a Young Adult novel written somewhat recently (not older than 2-3 years) and I can only remember one specific part of the book. Basically, this girl is at a track meet or race and her boyfriend (I'm guessing...can't really remember) comes running by and she cheers/yells his name and he trips/falls and he gets up and keeps running. I'm really bad at descriptions and there's probably no way that anyone will know what this book is but I CANNOT remember this book for the life of me and I just thought I'd give it a chance.

I remember a book about children (not that young) who were playing a cricket/baseball game with zombies or maybe one of the kids was a zombie. I think that it was part of a children horror series. The book looked quite old, but it had some illustrations. I remember another book from the same series which had pages on every monster you could think of! I remember there was a page on a Cyclops and one on a Cupid (I think), and their pictures were a bit creepy (I was a kid). And there were lots of other monsters! I have a feeling that the Zombie book had a camp in it, maybe? I remember that in a front cover the kids were together and one of them looked creepy. I can't remember much, but I really want to know the book/or series. Perhaps it was out at the same time as Goosebumps, or maybe before? I think that there was a book dedicated to each monster.

Her mother is trying to keep something from her though about her extended family, and how they are jewelry designers. At one point I believe she finds out about them, and goes to live with them. Other than that I can't remember much.

To Hailey- I owned this book as a kid, but can't remember the title either, but I have a few more details about it. Each year a new, ordinary girl is chosen to be a princess. I seem to remember her having to sign a contract while riding in a carriage to the castle. A dwarf is her guard, and becomes her friend. Each year the princess goes missing, which is why a new one is always needed. The newest princess finds out they are being turned into giant golden creatures- I think birds of some type like a roc. The dwarf helps the princess break the sorcerer's pattern, and not only isn't turned into the creature, but all the other princesses get their human bodies back. I recall that the cover has the newest princess, maybe in jeans?, standing at a window with the dwarf, and I think they could see one of the golden creatures in the sky. The book is from the '70's, '80's, or '90's (I know, not a lot of help there). I too would love to find this book again.

She gets in trouble along the way, and meets some alien friends. One who gives her something to breathe in and she can understand all alien languages. It ends with a cliffhanger and she finds where her people last lived. Thank You so Much!!

I'm looking for a book I read late 80's early 90's. A girl, her father and (and I think brother) move to a new house. I want to say it was a lighthouse, but I can't remember. She finds old love letters and pictures. When she looks at the pictures the image starts moving as if she can see what was happening when the picture was taken. Then she smells roses and faints. I want to say The Boy in the Lake or something like that. The boy is a ghost and can talk her I think. If memory serves, the cover was foggy blue and had a boy standing in a small body of water (lake, pond, etc.) and he was looking at a big house. I sure hope someone can help. I have been looking for this book for about 15 years. I'm starting to think I imagined it.

Hi! I'm looking for a book that I read when I was younger (late 90s, early 2000s but I'm not sure if that's when it was written.) It's about a princess, I think her name is Sophie (???), who lives in a book and she and her family and friends act out the story whenever someone reads the book. When The Reader's brother accidentally burns the book, the princess and her family have to run away into a sort of an in between world and learn how to live as regular people. The princess tries to find a way back to their book and ends up being able to go into The Reader's dreams and befriend her then convinces her to rewrite the book for them. I feel like the title may have the word "adventure" in it somewhere.

Hi, I'm looking for a science fiction book for older kids: I'm sure it is called "The ______ Birds" (I remembered it being called The Fire Birds, but this brings up nothing at all online). From what I remember, either a country or the whole world was being terrorised by these fire-breathing birds, which would set fire to whole towns etc. A group of people eventually capture one and find out it's actually a machine. They somehow find their way to the place where these birds are being controlled from (via a bank of tv screens, which show everything from the birds' view), and they make all the birds crash to the ground. It turns out the birds were controlled by aliens who are trying take over the country/world. I didn't finish the book, but as far as I can remember, after the birds were destroyed, the aliens create mechanical spiders to terrorise the people. I'd love to know what this book is, so I can find out what happens. Thanks

I am looking for a story I read years ago. I forget a lot of the specifics, but I believe it was about a woman who had some wrong committed against someone in her family. She thought she knew the man who did it, but she was wrong. She decided to punish him, and she was somehow able to imprison him and render him unable to speak or move, but he was still alive. It was somehow poetic justice for what she thought he did to her family member. I remember that, at the end of the story, she was reading to him, and he wanted to scream and tell her she had the wrong person, but he couldn't, and he was basically stuck there with her reading to him for eternity or something.

I'm looking for a book I read a long time ago (this may be a book from Britain) about a deformed, or disabled man who lives alone, and is shy and scared of people. He keeps or makes some miniature figurines of people he sees. I think he uses some kind of magnifying device, either to look through the window or to see the figures he makes. It ends badly, with him going insane and his creation being destroyed somehow. I think he falls in love with a woman and makes a figurine of her too. It's a very good story, I can't remember any more.

The book I am looking for I read back in 1986. It was about a girl Gweneth(?) Who was sold to a brothel by family members I think, Uncle maybe. She was given to a rich man who was told she was not a virgin when actually she was. She ended up getting pregnant. The rich man didn't want her a first but then came to take her to a better life. It was fairly erotic.

Looking for a book (obviously) I remember having this when I was about 8/9 It was a picture book - no words. The front cover had a massive house or, looked like a mansion or apartments even, the background was white and it was a hardback copy. When you flip through the pages you get to see what everyone is doing in each room on each floor. Right from the basement to the roof. It was if you took away the front of the house so you can everything was happening. The book starts off in the morning and you get to following what is happening in the house during the course of the day. I think at the end there is a party on one of the floors. From what I can remember I think the book is called "Our House" but I've had no luck when I search through google. If anyone can help it would be GREATLY appreciated.Looking for a book (obviously) I remember having this when I was about 8/9 It was a picture book - no words.

For some reason, wolves in the story come to mind. And another thing about the book was when she is described in the beginning of the book she is wearing some sort of anorak jacket with lots of pockets. I read it sometime between 1990 and 1999.

Hi, I'm trying to find a historical romance where the hero became a member of the peer and inherited the title from an older distant relative. This hero cannot read but he seems to be smart and perceptive. He travelled outside England before the start of the novel where he discovered that he likes hot chocolates. The heroine in this case was the widow of the deceased peer. She was imprisoned before the start of the story. She was freed and became the tutor of the hero because the latter lacks social grace and is somewhat too nice and naive. There was one scene where the hero was trying to read a book while innocently drinking a hot chocolate drink, and the widow could not help herself and is actually lusting over him. Then the widow became the hero's lover and became pregnant with his child. I've been looking for this book for the past 10 years. Hope someone will help me find it. pls email me at carleenaguila@gmail.com

I'm trying to find a book I read a few years ago. The story is mainly about a young man, I think a pastor, and his family. The story is told about his family through flashbacks. Major points: Takes place in western Canada, I think. Grandfather was a lumber jack or something. I think the family is Indian. His little sister dies by falling through ice on a river as a kid. Grand parents get caught in a blizzard and end up killing the man who is staying with them while they are trapped (they eat him). Their house burns down--grandfather thinks he's cursed. I think at one point a female character in the book gets lost in the snow only a few feet from the church porch and dies. It's super tragic, I've been trying to remember the name of it for years.

Hi As many of you I am also searching for a book. It's actually a series. Book one is about this small town that's just the other side of a highway and there is this boy. And behind this hill, by the town, is a school (i think its a boarding school??). In this school there is one rule that you may not enter the dungeons. This boy was curious and went to go look inside. There he found a book. i don't know if someone told him about this book? I really can't remember. Anyways he starts writing a story in this book and what he writes are getting real in this small town on the other side of the hill. He then showed it to this girl he liked and one of his best friends. They also start writing in the book. As they were writing there was these worms on the walls that was growing as they wrote the story. So in the end the boy from he town also wrote in the book, and the girl and boy from the school and they got powers some how from the book. In book two the boy from the town was blind but can show you stuff that you've never seen before if you look in his eyes, so he always wears sunglasses. The girl can force you to do things with the way she talks. The first boys best friend can read minds. And the boy who found the book first is this bad guy that forces people to kill each other and to be against each other.. That's how far i got with the book. Sorry guys i know it's not much information but that's all I can remember. Please if someone can please help me. I don't know if there is a book 3 tho. Thank you :)

I am looking for a juvenile book (sorry, I don't know the title) that was published in the 1980s or 1990s (it was read to me in 1991/1992). The main character and narrator is a young boy named Neil/Neal. The book revolves around his mentally disabled sister returning home. One incidence is when she presses the emergency button in the elevator (because it was the biggest and brightest button of all). I think his parents get a divorce, or maybe separate, and at one point his dad shaves his mustache off.

Hi! I've been trying to find this book for a while. It's a Young Adult book based in high school. There's this girl who does something, I can't remember what, and to avoid being told on she has to go exactly what this girl says. She has to wear what they tell her to wear and she can't talk to this boy friend of hers. He tries to get her to tell him what's going on but the girl group told her that if she told him, they were going to hurt her friend. Also, later on in the book, she was caught in the storage room kissing that same boy by some jock or someone. Everything turns out okay in the end but I just can't remember what it's called.

Please someone help me find these books! Book 1: A few years back I found this book in my school library about a girl who has to move to a new city with her mom/dad (I can't remember for certain which, but I THINK she only had one parent). She lives in, like, an apartment or something and there's some sort of big mansion-type house in her city? Something that I do know for certain is that she like sees the past or like can see ghosts. A little piece from the series that I ABSOLUTELY remember (because it's where I learned a piece of superstition that I found super interesting) is that at some point (I think it's like the 2nd or 3rd book) she goes out to this plantation house in/near her city and she finds this secluded room where she gets trapped inside of a mirror and is seeing the events where a mother and her child were closed inside of the secluded room with yellow fever and whenever the two died from the illness no one had covered the mirror in the room so their spirits got trapped. I think the initials of the story might've been WOS? Book 2: Same deal: a book I read a few years back that I found in my school library. This one I know a bit more information about. I'm fairly certain that the main character's name was Maya. And a big part of the story was the lore of skinwalkers and the main girl was a skinwalker. I wanna say it took place in Canada. But the girl has a paw print birthmark and I'm pretty sure she was adopted. And I think her love interest was also a skinwalker - as was her love interest's older (?) sister but the sister was further progressed into it so she was regressing to the mindset of a feral animal. Book 3: Another book from a few years back in my school library. It was about a (group of?) teen(s) who were thieves. This one REALLY slips me cause I can't remember much else. I think one of the first things they steal (or one of the main things) in the book(s) is some expensive artifact from a museum? Also I think at one point they steal something just to come to find out it's, in fact, a fake and so they have to try and find out who made the fake or something like that without getting caught. If you can help with ANY of these, it would be GREATLY appreciated.

Hello everyone, I am looking for a book that is historical romance. I do not remember the names of any of the characters so I'm gonna call the main-girl X and call the main-guy Y. X is a Lady's Maid or a Lady-In-Waiting in the royal palace. This was the one dream her mother had for her. X's mother herself wanted to be a Lady's Maid/Lady-In-Waiting too, but when she got pregnant shortly after her marriage, she had to quit her position, and she made it a mission that her daughter, X, will become one too. X didn't really care what she did as long as she made her mother happy. So there was a masquerade ball/costume party at the palace and all the staff was invited, including X. I can't remember what costume she wore, but at the party, she met a guy, Y, and she slept with him. Neither of them knew who the other person was, and X left immediately after the sex because she was embarrassed that she had lost her virginity to a total stranger. But Y didn't want her to leave and he spent some time looking for her. You see, Y was a spy for the Crown, and he was super rich, but X didn't know that. I'm not sure, but I think he was nobility. He was only in town on a mission, and to see his boss. I don't remember much about Y's boos, except he was a closet gay (in the Victorian era, people couldn't be openly gay), and he was in love with Y. The boss knew Y wasn't gay but he loved him anyway. Y also knew his boss was in love with him, but they never talked about it. When Y was about giving up his search for X, he found her again, and they had this adorable cute-meet. It was so funny. Because, apparently, X was pregnant from the night of the masquerade ball, and Y had the gall to ask if she was sure the child was his. She was so mad. Anyway, in the end, X didn't know what to do because being pregnant meant she couldn't fulfill her mother's dream. Y asked her to marry him since they were having child but she said no repeatedly. Y's job as a spy put the two of them in danger so they had some difficulties, but in the end, they overcame the evil and lived happily ever after. And X's mother accepted that just because she had a dream didn't mean her child had the same dream. I wish I knew more about the book to increase my chances of someone knowing what I'm talking about. If anyone knows the name of this book, please help me. I read it when I was 14 and now that I'm about to be 20, I have no clue what the title of the book is, who wrote the book, or what it even looked like. Any type of clue is appreciated. Thanks.

I'M LOOKING FOR THIS BOOK TOO!! PLEASE HELP: IT WAS FIRST POSTED AS A QUERY BY AARONJOHNSONFAN101: This woman who was some powerful person had been sentenced to torture and rape for the post few centuries. Her whole body is filled with scars. She can't be killed. Even if her head is chopped off, she'd regrow it although she can feel pain. She's transferred to one island to another to be chased and tortured by whichever God (Greek) felt like it. One day after being abused by a God and left alone, she felt the presence of men (about 12 I think, not sure) and found stone statues somewhere in some ruins. She touched one, and they came back to life. They were warriors created by the Gods but when they got too strong, they turned them into stone. They were the only ones of their kind, until her. She was apparently one of the men's daughter and had powers of her own. That's all I remember of the story I'm afraid

I'm looking for the title of a book I read several years ago, so my details may be extremely fuzzy: the story has a young man that doesn't know his name. He was stolen (or something) when he was really young and sold on another planet. Because of his age, no one really wanted him, so a beggar won the auction. Some stuff happens, and he gets involved with the military (I think). A high ranking official takes a special interest in him and helps him discover his identity using footprints. He returns to Earth to get to know his family. I'm sure more happens, but I can't recall anything.

I'm looking for a chapter book that's more for younger teens I would suppose. I know the front of the book is bluish and has an illustration of a tween boy on the front. It's about a boy whom I don't know the name of and he can look at pictures and see the people in the picture moving. It's kind of like a Harry Potter occurrence but not one. I think it has something to do with cats as well, thanks for help!

paranormal romance. the male is a vampire I believe and he's set in some sort of underworld. somehow a woman is with him and he ends up biting her and he's very possessive of her. it's definitely adult and erotic. if I remember right he doesn't speak much if at all. ?

Hi. I'm Looking for a book I saw in my local library as a kid about 25 years ago. It was not in the children's section, although it was in the youth area. I never got around to reading the book because I couldn't check it out due to my age. It was black and white illustrated, and there was a man that went into the woods and encountered a half naked woman. The sketchings were pretty realistic, with drawings of the creepy woods and of the creep woman. The woman's hair was all billowing out like. I think she was a witch or was dead or something. The book was set in semi-modern times because I remember in one of the pictures he was getting out of a cab before he entered the woods, and he wore regular clothes. Unfortunately by the time I was old enough to check it out to read it, it was no longer available.

A book I read 40+ years ago. 1960s adult book about a japanese ww2 soldier forgotten on deserted island with a japanese female who had children together and were never told the war was over. I believe it was soft porn. A man came across the island somehowhe discovers one or several lovely young women. blah blah blah. I have no idea of the title or the author. For me now, it's just a memory that popped into my head from childhood.

LMAO. Sorry guys, after all these years of looking for that damn series, I finally found them, quite by accident. They were by Jude Watson, series known as the Brides of Wildcat County. I only found them by randomly clicking on someone's review of a book, which they hated! lol Thanks all, even though I found them myself... finally

Hey everybody. I'm looking for a young adult series, written in the 80's or 90's I think. Each book is based on a different girl (late teens early 20's), who all live in the same small frontier kind of town somewhere in the West of the USA, and they fall in love with different guys in the same town/area. They are mild romance stories, nothing graphic or anything. One of the girls was super spunky, didn't think she'd fall in love, but of course she does (she might have had red hair). One of the books was about a blonde girl called Savannah. That's all I can remember. I hope someone can help!!

Hi. I'm read a book as a child/preteen. All I remember is the main character was a woman. The man you wanted her to fall in love with was a photographer. It was based off maybe a London city? It's been nagging at me for weeks but I can't remember a thing about it.

Hi! I am looking for an adult paranormal book I read some time ago . I cannot remember the title of the book or the characters names, I do know that I read it on amazon kindle. the story goes something like a woman is put into an all men team. I don't remember if it was four or eight men . they all live close together in some sort of headquarters, well they each have apartments close to each other.kind of like dorm rooms I believe. they go on a mission and she is given a drink which contained a strong aphrodisiac . one of the men on her team is an elf, and he is the one with her when this happens. he is unable to take her to her place so he takes her to his. where he has to help her through her hard time. because she consumed an aphrodisiac, it is painful for her and the only way to relieve it is for him to help her sexually until it leaves her system. it is an adult book. he falls for her. he is not happy because another man in his team had helped her in the beginning and that said man has strong feeling for this woman as well . there is a part where everyone goes on a vacation to visit their families, and the woman is going with the man who saved her in the beginning and she feels a sense of duty going with him. she should like him but she doesn't. she likes the elf. before getting on - I think - a helicopter with her "savior", she rethinks her decision and decides to go with the elf. I vaguely remember that she was late and the elf had already left home. I think she ends up going on her own and he lived in the woods in a cabin . or something like that. It would be great to get the title of this book, hopefully, I had enough information . thanks for the help!

Looking for a book i read in the late eighties, early nineties--young adult book about a girl whose family works/owns a macintosh/apple computer store; she helps teach typing class or something like that, and has to work in the store on weekends/after school, i think. There is a grand opening, with a big display of rainbow colored flowers that form the "Apple" symbol,with a sign that days "take a byte!". Anyhoo, the computer the main character is using malfunctions,so she thinks, but it turns out the machine is haunted by the ghost of a young girl who died in a steamboat accident 100 years earlier. The ghost communicates by "typing" her story, and the main character kinda goes back in time to help prevent this accident from happening--she also has to "save" the ghost to a floppy disk at one point to help the ghost figure out how to stop the accident. Anyone ever heard of this book?

Hey, I'm looking for a book in which a girl finds out that her elder "cool-teenage" sister is missing. She was never allowed to enter her sister's room so once her sister is gone, she starts looking around her room and stuff. Then she feels that her sister has left little clues for her. So she starts asking around- her friends, classmates, whoever her sister hangs around with. Apparently, she was last seen at a party and then she never returned home. So her sister follows her clues and goes in search for her to another city/town. I came across this book back when I was in school (Around 5 years back) but I never quite finished reading the book. I remember the book cover was sort of white and the title was in bright pink and blue colours, like one of those typical teenage-girls books. Could someone please help me find out the name and author of the book?

I am looking for a historical romance book that I read in the early 1990s. It was a paperback which featured a woman in a red dress and the cover was red too, I believe. The story was about a rich young man who has some kind of accident or illness that causes him to be unable to communicate verbally or do much physically either ( he may have been blind too). He withdraws from everyone and becomes bitter, angry and gives up. His family hires this young woman to care for him. He initially fights all her attempts to help him rehabilitate, but eventually they fall in love and he gets much better. Any one know of a book like this? I have been searching for years and cannot remember the title or the author.

Hi there!:D I'm looking for a bunch books that I've read about in my english class in Howell High School a couple of years ago. They are fictional stories with real life settings that were all by the same author. I don't remember any of the titles nor the author's name but I do remember that in one of the books that one of the main character's first name is Wyatt but I don't remember which book he's from. What I do remember is a couple of details from at least 3 of the books. 1.) The First book which takes place in the great depression (although I could've sworn that my teacher that it either is about the great depression or not I can't remember it was a long time ago) is about this boy who wants to become a doctor. He is dating this blonde girl where he tries to give her paper flowers from the bottom of his heart but she throws it in the trash because she is spoiled rotten and selfish who only wants to have the "good/finer things in life" which her friend who pretty much has the same spoiled rich girl attitude as her defends her by telling the guy something along the line although I don't know exactly what that is that he should've gotten her something nice instead of "insulting her with a paper rose"!>:( She gets so upset about that she dates another guy back his back without even breaking up with to his face! >:( Later he tries to get a job but ends up working for a world class creep who even though he's just the boss' son is apparently privileged with authority over the guy and his best friend which he abuses to abuse them with bossing and insulting them around til the point that they quit and they threw quarters at him. The best friend whom his name I don't know decides to steal from I think a hardware company then the guy tells his parents about the whole thing which his mother replies that what his best friend stealing is wrong. The next to final part I have a really hard time remembering if he caught and he got sent to jail or not. But however I do remember that the bad guy who was their boss got injured in a car crash with his girlfriend who happens to be the spoiled rich girlfriend's best friend so I guess you could say they got their comeuppance! :D At the final part of the book the guy ends up becoming a doctor in the sense that he's a pediatrician to his best friend's baby while he's in the hospital due to an injury or after he get out jail I don't remember but I do remember that his baby is this poor girl that he had a crush on earlier in the book! :D 2.) The second book is about a Chinese guy leaving china for America to work on the railroad during what I think was the Chinese-American Contribution To Transcontinental Railroad period where he is engaged by his family's arrangement to be wed to this beautiful Chinese girl but isn't sure whether to go through with it not so decided to stick through the railroad work but unfortunately encounters a few casualties along the way. The first one is that he encounters a bunch of jerks who hate Chinese people to the point that they wanted to cut his long hair off which is a problem for him because having long hair is a Chinese customs where if he doesn't have it then he's not welcome back to China so instead of telling the other Chinese workers about this since he knows that kind of antagonism will lead to the other Chinese people being so pissed off that it will all result in a bloody fight between the Chinese people and the Chinese haters that he just decided to avoid them all together. The second one is that he encounters this pretty girl who was at first all nice to him but then she dated this guy who a totally abusive creep to her to the point that he gave her a black eye and he tried to attack the Chinese boy out of jealous rage but instead of breaking up with him she decided to stay with him and told the Chinese boy to leave them alone obviously out of fear and love towards him. So after all that he decides to just go back to China to wed the girl that his parents arranged to get married to who wore a beautiful kimono with a phoenix on it. I do remember that my english teacher from Howell High School talking to me about a famous person that was mentioned in the book but I'm not sure if it was A.J. Russell, Judge Edwin Bryant Crocker, or somebody else! !>:P 3.) There was a guy in the old west who like the other books faces his own bad guy only this time it was I think some kind of cowboy prospector who was looking for gold. The only detail that I remember is that after some chase between the good guy and the bad guy the bad guy falls off a cliff while grabbing on to a branch the good guy was trying to help him up by telling him to let go of the bag of gold that's weighing him down but the bad guy was too greedy to listen to him so he decided to hold on to the gold while trying to climb up the cliff through off the branch. But the branch broke due the weight so the bad guy fell further the down cliff and died upon landing.The rest I don't remember so if somebody could please tell me what are the titles of these books and who their author is that would be really great thanks! :D Have a Happy Mother's Day! :D

I am looking for a book I owned as a young adult and loved but loaned to a friend and never got back. It was about two people, a man and a woman who had been childhood best friends. The book starts out with the woman's "normal" life with her husband and kids; she's eating breakfast on the sun porch and the dog wants to get the food. I think the male friend dies and leaves the woman his fortune. Apparently he had been a successful author of romance books or some such thing under a pen name and nobody knew about it.

The cover had white lines on it, you could tear it off and turn it into a paper airplane. I remember one particular part, the character was talking about murders. He was describing in detail how to clean up blood off of certain surfaces, get stains out of clothes, cover up bullet holes in walls and other surfaces. I remember it had an odd name and I believe the authors name was a little weird. Any help finding this boom is greatly appreciated!

Hi to all. I am searching for a horror short-story anthology, probably published in the late 60's or early 70's. It may possibly have been published under Alfred Hitchcock's imprimatur/series of spooky, supernatural, and mystery anthologies. The specific story that I remember from that anthology had a title that referenced the proverb "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride" I have already done some google searching for "horror short story" with the entire phrase or keywords from that phrase, with no success. The story is set in a small community (probably in the US, but possibly in UK), with intertwined episodes about strange occurrences. The only portion I remember is that one woman is known around town as mean-spirited and talks behind her friend's backs. She wakes one morning to discover that she has another face on the back of her head. In between the various episodes are short news flashes about reports of wild horses being seen, galloping through the streets. I remember the book as having a white cover with bold black font, the anthology title at the top, large expanse of white below; hard cover, and slightly over-sized (approximately the size of a college yearbook?). Thanks for any suggestions, I read the story when was in my early teens and found it quite creepy, would love to read it again to see if it stands the test of time.

Looking for a book I used to own (no idea where it went!) TRIGGER WARNING. Basically, it's about this family that lives on a farm. The Father left, so it's just the Grandpa, Mom, and daughter that remain, and they're living under the thumb of the Mother's brother. The daughter (I can't remember her name, so I'll just call her M), is dating this boy named John, and they want to get married, and everything, but he sets off to make an earning first, so that he can provide for her, and their future children. She ends up in the barn on her farm, writing in her hidden diary (which her Uncle has read), and her Uncle ends up raping her. When M has a daughter, everyone gossips about how it's John's child, and how he left her with a bastard child. John's Mom/Aunt (can't remember who she is), is furious, and shuts out M's family, because she knows it's not John's child, and she wonders who M betrayed John with. Enter Danny. Danny is this nice delivery boy, who utterly dotes on M, and her daughter. And when John see's the three of them together from a distance, he assumes M has moved on, and had a child with Danny. So he leaves, and sets up work, and meets a woman, and they marry. And M ultimately marries Danny. And the Uncle of course is punished, and the Father of M returns (thanks to John), and it's such a good story! I REMEMBER SO MUCH ABOUT THIS! But I cannot for the life of me remember the title, or author!!

She is put into this protection program for magical kids: one is a girl who can turn into a snake, a boy who can use electricity, and I think another boy (I can't remember what he does). She also has this protector named Malcom that follows her around.(she's later told by the other kids in the program that the protection program is evil so she begins to distrust them) the girl is used to find missing children using her dreams. In her dreams she sees a circus. The ringleader shows one of the missing magic kids a trick which ends up killing them. The girl also has powers like turning into things but can't use them without blacking out. She can only use her powers normally if she's touching this certain boy. It later turns out that the girl was actually a stuffed doll that was filled with magic by the ringleader and this old witch and she had ran away.

The boy's father is very wealthy and when they start getting closer the father insists they take a break, despite liking the girl. Somehow they both find out that his father belongs to a secret agency that controls practically everything. It even set up a plane crash to hide the fact that they killed the boys mom. The agency has chosen the boy to be the president in a few years and want him with someone better known politically and such. The couple pretend to be on a break while the boy goes reckless on vacations and the like so that he will have publicly trashed his reputation and hopes the agency will now want nothing to do with him. It works, they love each other, the end. Would love to read this book again. Believe maybe it's even a series. If anyone could help it would be much appreciated!!

I'm looking for a YA book written sometime in the 1960s. Can't remember the title, author, publisher, etc. I believe the main character's name is Lib or Liz. Plot: Young woman (Lib or Liz) w/broken heart from failed romance goes to college and finds healing through new friendships with 3 roommates. The first roommate is named Penny and is very shy and drab. Lib helps her with her confidence by aiding Penny's efforts to make a new wardrobe and discovering that this seemingly timid young girl wants to be an archaeologist and boldly travel the world. The culmination of their friendship occurs when Penny overcomes her fears and publicly models a new outfit at a show. Second roommate -- can't remember her name. She is enrolled at the college under "false" pretenses. She is a very light-skinned African American, but in order to get into the segregated school, she pretends to be Hispanic. She and Lib become close friends. Her secret is eventually revealed, and she is tossed out of the school. In protest, Lib and Penny withdraw from the college. Third roommate -- a popular, pretty and wealthy young woman who thinks the world revolves around her. She tries to befriend Lib, but Lib has matured and knows the kind of friendship this roommate offers is shallow and thrives on excluding those who are less privileged. The roommate is baffled by Lib's indifference and is horrified when the all three of her roommates leave the school. At the very end of the book, a new, geeky roommate moves in (her name is Doris Klein), and the now "enlightened" original roommate decides to take a page from Lib's book and offers friendship to Doris.

It is about a woman and man who were high school sweethearts and run into each other in their 50's or 60's at a writer's conference abroad. They are both making presentations about their recent publications. They had both been married to other people, and he might still be. They renew their strong feelings for one another. Each subsequent chapter is about a previous encounter. It continues to go back in time until finally they are driving home from their senior prom, making plans for their future together. It is raining, and the car skids and crashes into a tree. She is killed!! I want to read this book again to figure out if she was a figment of his imagination or what? Can anyone help me find out the name or author? Thanks!

Hi! I'm looking for a book I read around 20 years ago and it was a paperback then. It was about a holy or spiritual child with a special colored aura (I think it was brown) and the monks tried to cover the aura in order to conceal him. That's really all I remember except I found it on a friend's bookshelf when I was an overnight guest and started reading it. I always wondered what happened because I didn't get to finish it which still, 20 years later, bugs me! :). Any ideas? Thank you!

Hi. I'm looking for a book that I would say came out fairly recent. I didn't read the entirety of the book just the first chapter, which is why I'm looking for it. It's a romance novel and it was about a women that worked in like the newspaper and just as she is about to confirm it and send it off to her supervisor her mac computer freezes and she comments on it how it's a spinning rainbow. She calls for IT. And the guy that comes to fix it, without her knowing is the new boss.

I am looking for a sci-fi/fantasy book that I don't remember much about other than it was good. It had a father who was a royal tapestry maker but all of the tapestries were made with the hair of the artisan's daughters. I remember at one point reading about a vast landscape covered with the hair tapestries. If you know this book, or even have a clue, please email me at mrmpc123@gmail.com.

Greetings, I am looking for a 60's or 70's book that I think was call "dreams of alba" but it have another title toof that I can't remember. It was about a man that woke up in another world where dreams were sacred! Through out time man people had slipped into this world, including a French soldier from WWII. The natives didn't speak a lot and when they did at first the main character didn't understand the language. The people didn't wear much clothing either. They all shared a hit to sleep in and in the morning they shared their dreams. The main character falls for a native girl and they have a baby. That's all I really remember. Hope some one knows the title and author. Thanks!

I'm looking for a book I read back in high school, so it was probably written in the mid-90's. The protagonist was a girl, but the story was mostly focused on the guy she liked. And guy had trouble expressing emotion or getting close to people. And it turned out his abusive older brother was manipulating him, because he'd convinced him at a very young age that there was a bomb in his chest that he (the older brother) could set off at any time. So the younger brother would have panic attacks whenever he thought he was getting close to upsetting his older brother enough to set off the bomb. It's killing me that I can't find anything on this book. If you remember anything about it, please e-mail me at philled2thebrim@gmail.com

Hello! I'm looking for a book I read at least 10 years ago. It's about a poor young girl in GA who meets and falls for a wealthy Atlanta doctor. I don't remember all the specifics but they stop seeing each other, I think because she was too young for him, but he pays for her to go to college. She pines after him for years but gives up when she learns he's remarried. His marriage ends after his newborn baby with his wife dies & he does the organ donor operation. At that point he & the girl reunite and she becomes pregnant. I believe the book was written by a female romance author in Atlanta, but I haven't had any luck finding it.

The little girl realizes, as the book progresses that the man travels the world for rarities. His house and the surrounding area is a sancuary for mythical creatures, among them, a toothless vampire, a mangy werewolf, and fairies, to name a few. The book was humorous,and all the denizens were friendly to the little girl. Not positive, but I think the word "Garden" was in the title. Thank you for your help.

It was about a horse and I cannot remember how much was involved with a rider, but I know the horse get hurts in the end and I think it gets caught in a fence. I cannot remember if the horse dies. But it was the first book I really remembering not being able to put down and I am trying to find it. All I can remember about the cover is that it was very earth toned and with a white horse on the cover. But again that was years ago and it could have changed a lot in almost 15 yeas.If anyone knows anything, please let me know!

I read 2 books years ago which I would love to find. The first was fantasy fiction--4 sisters who were partially seperated at birth--it was astrology based and the lands were seperatd by signs( water, earth, air)--it was mystery/romance and the story line was on how they solved the mystery of their separation and found love individually--obscure I know. The second was romance based, sort of. I had a lady come up to me at a store and say you have to read this book. It was a woman who I believe was a nurse who got a guardian angel who was a leather wearing, motorcyle riding angel. The story is about her search for love. If anyone recognizes either of these books I would appreciate any help--both were in the 80's to early 90's. Thanks

The main character is a teenage girl that falls in love with a boy. She gets pregnant, but probably gets a miscarriage. The boy(friend) has an affair with the main characters best friend. It's possible that the boy(friend) travels for some time. She believes that the story takes place in "present day" (10+ years ago), in England (but she doesn't recall if that is ever written).

When I was in high school I read a trilogy and they were picture books but they were kind of morbid in a way, I don't remember much except that I want to read them again, I sort of temember it being about a girl in an Armageddon type of time, some where in the future where there's nothing much left and there's a villain and I'm not sure if he was a man who lived in the sewer and had rats but he was disgusting. I'm pretty sure there's a hot air balloon in the story and there's magic I think? I'm pretty certain the story starts at a run down circus? At the circus I'm pretty sure the girl meets a boy?

Right guys first book A woman's boyfriend is killed. a detective is put on the case, the woman develops feelings for him. the murder is to do with were wolves, can't think if she gets bitten. I think silver may have been in the title but idk. Read it years ago now, one of those total random finds. 2nd had 2 stories by same author, one of the stories a man, his kids and their step mother camp by a lake at part of a park nature place where its meant to be off limits, a deformed guy attacks in the night forcing himself on the step mother and her step daughter, they murder him then return home agreeing never to tell anyone, but the creature mans mother wants revenge and weird things start to happpen to the son and Daughter, the son is in the library one day in a disused dusty part when something unseen attacks him. i think the creatures family track the man and his family down trying to kill them but they beat them, the second story in it is a man steal a stone that grants inadvisability he swallow it and becomes permanent invisible and goes to the house of the woman he stalks, he attacks and forces himself on her and shes really confused as obviously she cant see anything, she either tells the police or hires a detective idk but a detective/ specialist guy agrees to help her, she has to go to a convention or on the run or something and he escorts her, they don't know invisible guys following them and when he seems them kiss and be intimate he attacks detective, in they end they some how mange to catch him and make him rid the stone from his body and the detective and victim get together. I think the author is male

I'm hoping someone here can help me. I'm looking for a book I read at least 12 to 15 years ago. I don't remember much but I thought I'd give this a try. Bear with me it's just going to be bits and pieces from memory. There was either a brother and one sister or brother and two sisters who run away from their village on some sort of quest to do with music or something. I remember theres a vast desert, and at some point they get captured on this ship that travels over sand. They become friends with the captors, or so they think. They braid shiny ribbons into their hair and dress them up really nice. But, i think it turns out they're going to be sacrificed or something. Then there is some sort of battle with another ship or more. Unfortunately that's all i really remember. There was some sort of bad guy they had to defeat when they made it back to their village. It had to do with music or signs, maybe an instrument of some kind. The picture i have in my head of the cover involved red and sand and a swirly "s" written in either the sand or something. I though the title was something along the lines of A Song of Sand, but I'm having no luck finding anything matching with that title. Any help would be appreciated!

Hi, I read this story when I was young, and I can't remember or find the title of it. I think it was by RL Stine, but I'm not too sure. It was in a collection of short stories, and the book had a purple cover, if that helps... The story is about a tall tomboyish girl who started working in a flower shop. Her job was to basically carry boxes everywhere. She and the shop assistant notice a young boy who always hangs out around the shop, and then one day, he comes in to buy some roses. He asks for 12, but realise how expensive they were. Nevertheless, he buys them. I remember one of the lines by the girl "[the shop assistant] told me to go out back and pick up some boxes so I didn't get to hear what he said. I saw her [the shop assistant] run her perfectly manicured finger to curl the ribbon. I can't do that because of my bad habit to bite my nails." Anyways, on her way home, she caught the train as usual, and this bully also caught the same train as usual. But there was a new passenger as well. It was the boy, and he stood just by the door, shyly. But as the doors slammed shut behind him, the roses were snapped off, and all that was left were stems. The boy flushed angrily but pretended that nothing happened. They went into a dark tunnel, and the girl couldn't help but grin. But as the lights switched on, the boy saw her laughing and became angry. As the train stopped, the boy jumped off but wasn't quick enough. The bully came up to him and pulled the rose stems out of his hand. The boy struggled to get it back, but to no avail. The bully looked at the card and then at the girl and sneered. It's for you, he said. The boy couldn't take it anymore; he pulled out the bully's grip, jumped onto the tracks, and ran up the tunnel. Before someone could warn him, a scream was heard and the next train rushed in. At the funeral, the only people present were the boy's grandmother, the priest and the girl. The girl found out that the boy lived with his grandma and spent all their shopping money on the roses. During the whole day, the girl's palm itched like anything. When the girl went home that day, it was only her and the bully on that carriage. Suddenly a rose just grew out of the girl's palm. As the train entered the tunnel, it went dark, but when the lights were switched on, there were roses everywhere. They just grew and grew and then snaked up to the bully. The vines curled around his neck and choked him to death. Then they crawled back and disappeared as if they were never there. When the girl went home, she saw a bouquet of perfect red roses, but there was something different about them. They had two black dots on each petal. Then she realised that those were the boy's eyes, and that he was sending her a message from beyond the grave. She whispered thank you and the petals seemingly smiled at her. The end. If you know which book this is from, or what the name of this story, I'd really appreciate it :)

One of those secrets were that he only married her mother because her last husband who died left behind a lot of money, so he kept trying to get her to agree on buying land and she wouldnt, so he kept practicing her signature and later on forges it. Someone finds the little girls diary in which she wrote about the things she'd find in his office and what he would say and or do to her when he caught her in his office. Please, if you know of any book similar to this please tell me.

Anyone know of a book about a girl who lost her mother kind of young. They lived in a cottage a ways away from everyone. Only one man ever visited. I think she developed feelings for him? He ends up being her protector of sorts. Her mom makes her run away, someone is after them. She has to hide in a cave and wait for her mom. She never comes, but her moms male friend does. Later in life, she is a nurse, I think, and she has some kind of power that makes her super sensitive to feelings. Then I think there is something about travelling somewhere, and being trained in combat. A protector for Eden? I'm pretty sure her and her mom were targets for assassination because they knew the location for Eden, or something. I thought it was the Finding Eden and Beyond Eden books, but it's not... I have literally being driving myself nuts for 3 weeks trying to figure this out. Anyone think of anything close to what I'm talking about?

I think I was in elementary school when I read this book, so that would be in the early 2000's (2004-2006.) This was a book of short stories and I can only remember two of the stories. I think they were called, "The Girl With The One Eye" and "Vanilla Ice Cream Boy." The first story is about a girl who either lost one of her eyes in an accident or was born like that met a boy with only one leg. He met her on accident because she had run off to go cry because she thought that since she only had one eye, she couldn't be pretty enough. (Sorry, that's all that I can remember.) The second story, a girl liked to shoplift and then realized that every time she would steal something, a guy who was always eating vanilla ice cream would catch her (he wouldn't say anything, she just knew that he knew.) I think at the end of the story, she decided that she wouldn't steal anymore because of him.. maybe they ended up together? Sorry, I don't really remember. It's been over 10 years. But if ANYONE knows what this book is, it would be so appreciated.

It was about a boy and a girl that lived in a village, and the boy found a black mysterious box on the shore. Eventually, he is compelled to open it, against the "wise mans" wishes. Soon after these men on black horses tear their village apart and takes the boy, girl, and the box. The boy is put in a cage while the girl turns to be their new leader. I loved it so much. It's called Black Box or something like that.

It's about this kid at school, and there is like an "elite" group that the guys are in. It's kind of secretive and the main character wants to join. He has to be tied to a chair, or something. But at the end, his friend jumps out a window and breaks his arm. Making the "elite" group be done or something. I really don't know it, and it's killing me.

I know it had two main characters, one female, and one male. They were in high school, and were reading plays or whatever. They end up time traveling or something, and are able to see Romeo and Juliet. They try to shape the story, but besides that I really don't know it. I vaguely remember it, but it's been bothering me lately.

Hi, I am looking for a romantic suspense from about 25 years ago. The heroine returns home after death of estranged father. She comes back and discovers her father died under mysterious circumstances. She meets up with her ex-fiancé, who is the town sheriff or police captain. He had left her for her more beautiful, twin sister. But, the twin sister had left him at the altar, to run away with a local thug. The heroine also has to take care of her niece. The heroine's housekeeper, or ex-nanny, tells her that she, the heroine, always had had a bad habit of giving her sister everything the sister wanted, or moving aside when sister wanted the heroine's lovers or boyfriends. That the ex-fiancé had felt as he was not worth fighting for. Any one has any ideas?

Hello! I, too, am searching for a book. I found this book in college in roughly 1992, I'm pretty sure it was written in the 80s or late 70s. It takes place, I'm pretty sure, in Harlem, in the 60s/70s. It's written from the point of view of a kid I'd say age 11-15ish. It's about life in the slum/tenements/streets. It tells a story of sadness, violence and drug addiction. There are many people"on the nod" in hallways. I'm sorry this is such a rough description. I haven't read the book in more than 20 years, but from time to time, it crosses my mind. I'd love to read it again. Thank you!

Hello im looking for a young adult novel my teacher read to me back in 1999. I always thought the name of this book was letters from the mountain however when I look this title up I never find what I am looking for. From what I remember of the book this lady has 2 children and she dies leaving the kids alone. The kids do not have hardly any relatives. I think the older sister was in high school around 17yo and the younger sister was maybe around 10yo. So I think the older sister leaves school because she needs to get a job and take care of her sister because child services is trying to take the little sister and slip them up. So when they can't afford to live in their home any more the sister finds an abandoned home in the woods or on a mountain and they end up living there. The older sister meets a young man but she's skeptical of him at first because she doesn't want anyone to get in between her and her little sister and hurt them. So eventually the young man moves in with them and they live for a while. Then the older sister finds a distant relative by way of mail that is willing to take the sisters in and help them out. This synopsis is probably more or less accurate after all these year. I'm sure my memory has altered this book in some way but I think this is the general idea of the novel.

He lives under some kind of dome with other creatures and fights alongside other humans to survive. In the beginning of the book his brother betrays him and leaves him for dead after he saves him from some creatures by droping a boulder on one of them. Later a girl in capsule falls from the sky and she brings a tool that allows the guy to speak normally. But the creatures find one and they use it to communicate with other creatures to attack the humans

I seem to remember that Williamsburg is either where it took place, or this city was mentioned enough that it stuck with me. I think it was told from the viewpoint of young girls. There was something about little dolls...possibly dressed in colonial attire. I know at one point they were looking for...something... and one of the characters remembered that there was a hidden spot behind their chimney/fireplace. There was a replica of that house and they found that there was a teensy hidden area behind the replica chimney/fireplace too. I don't remember much else. It's driving me crazy though! Something about this book popped into my head the other day, and now I can't get it out! I keep remembering that one of the girls used her fingernail to find the catch to open the teensy replica chimney/fireplace's hidden spot. If anyone is a better internet detective than me please help! I've tried and I'm giving up now!

Hi. I'm looking for a book about a boy who's parents are killed in a car accident and he goes to live with his grandfather. I remember checking in out of my old church library in the mid to late 80s. Its a chapter book and there were several that continued the story.

Hi! I'm looking for a book about a woman who bakes bread in a bakery. I think she lives in Portland, in a basement apartment. There is a love interest but he's kind of flaky and can't settle down. He spends time in a fishing town (maybe in Alaska? Canada?), he lives in a shed/shanty. The bakery goes out of business. And that's all I remember :( Any ideas? TIA!

Hi, I read a book many years ago, true events, about a young woman on holidays. While waiting to board a train, she was approached by a man to take his suitcase with her, unwisely, she did, it contained drugs. She was caught and spent time in a foreign jail. She described the events and the outcome. I can't remember the name of the book or the woman involved. Any suggestions Thank you

7:00:05 AM hi guys! im looking for a book and this is the best i can remember. i read this in ibooks and cant seem to remember the name of the book or the author. the book is about this woman has lost her kids in a big earthquake that has hit her town. she packs up & leaves with her dog in her car to go look for her son at his school but no luck. So she just starts driving anywhere until her car stops and there is a weird fog that surrounds her that wont let her scream or move and so she passes out and end up waking in the future with dirty clothes from she wakes up with her dog and is startled by a wolf who changes into a girl in front of her eyes. The girl wolf was told by her uncle to stay within miles of the house and not to go any further and upon doing so she finds the woman with her dog. when she tells her uncle what she has found the man takes the woman and her dog in and asks her what her name is & where did she comes from, what happened & how did she get here & what year does she think it is. When she tells him that he sends her to clean up and meanwhile he goes into his study to look her up. he finds her name and her info match but he also finds that she was presumed dead in the earthquake that took place and killed many and she gets upset (i think he even goes and sleeps with her to calm her when shes sleeping.) time goes by and she falls for the man and at one point he tells her that her dog is a good protector and couple times he even changes into his wolf form so he could go out and play with the womans dog as well. At one point people begin to look for her and try to kill her when they meet with a so called friend of the man/wolf and the woman is told to hide behind the bush however she is shot in the leg and begins to bleed. Later the man ends taking her to a secluded area where he makes a little secret place including trees for her safety (because his house was just blown up by the people who want to get rid of her because she's from the past.) I believe he gives her his blood and converts her into a wolf? Not sure. I'm sorry if i cant give much but that's about it. I found/downloaded this book for free through ibooks but cannot seem to remember the name or author. i hope i can get help from you all. thanks!

I'm looking for a book that I assume is a Young Adult novel because I read it when I was a teenager. I believe it was a rather short book no more than 200 pages I think. There was a teenage girl or young adult and she went/was taken (can't remember which) to a castle or large house where this guy lived. I think more people lived there but I can't remember. The guy can turn into a jaguar or some other large cat species (can't really remember that either). She warmed up to him. And the only thing I can really remember was that this girl and transforming guy would spend time in a garden relaxing and talking with each-other. It was just a really nice short read that I want to read again if anyone can help me find the title of it.

Hello! I'm looking for a book about a woman who is recovering from something. She's living at a house near a swamp and describes the nature around her using pretty whimsical imagery. I think she describes the spiders in her house, the birds at the swamp, and possibly a frog. I remember one part where she's walking on a wall and she sees her neighbors picking a giant mushroom. She later says that they made it into a soup and that she was upset about that for some reason. I don't remember the title or the author. I think I read it around 8-11th grade, which would be 2008-2012. The author uses a lot of imagery. I remember that she writes down everything that she observes. She lives alone and I think that she may be recovering from a sort of mental illness or something. I've been looking for so long and google hasn't gotten me anywhere. Thank you!

I'm looking for a book that I read in High School, which was between the years of 2009 and 2013. The book is about some people who are trapped in a town that is surrounded by a sandstorm, and they find a newspaper that tells of their deaths. I can only remember 2 of the deaths: One of them, a women, is putting gas into a car, and she is smoking a cigarette. Somehow, the cigarette falls from her mouth, and lights some gas on fire that is on the ground, and thus blows up the car. The other death is about a younger guy, a really smart kid, who slashes both of his wrists, and requests to be put into his bed, as this is how the newspaper says he is found. At the end of the book, it turns out that the people are trapped in the town because of some sort of curse or something, and it was caused by a women that had something against them I think. I've looked for this book everywhere, and I can't find anything on it.

My son is intensely trying to find a book he read in 4th grade from the school library. He's 47 yrs old so this was in the 70's. It was a fantasy where the main, young male character had a magic bowl that would fill with any food he wanted. There was a portal involved for traveling and the cover on it at that time had a road vanishing in the distance, with an overlaid head of a wolf on the horizon. There were also magic rings involved, although this probably describes a major portion of fantasies. :-) Anyone out there got an idea so I can solve this mystery for my son? Thanks, ginger

Hi everyone, I've recently been searching for a book that I read probably back around 2010. The main character of the story planned his own suicide. it was rather elaborate, I think it involved multiple failsafes such as a shotgun, a noose and even pills and poison. He was not successful in killing himself and ended up going through a recovery at the hospital. He meets woman who helps him through his recovery but the woman disappears from his life one night when they go for a walk on the beach. She goes into the water and never returns, if I remember correctly. If anyone has any suggestions and ANY possibilities, please let me know! i'll gladly look into them :)

There's a book I read in 2010 or so that I think was published in the mid-2000s, around...? It was an autobiography, and I remember the cover very clearly: it was light green with an image of two ladybugs having sex. (I was young at the time, and my mother had left it in the backseat, and it was making me uncomfortable.) It was an autobiography, I'm pretty sure, and it humorously chronicled the female author's teens and 20s. Out of all the books I've ever read, I remember this one most clearly. Here are some random pieces: -When she was young, she could not leave the house without a scarf-- not for any religious reason or anything, just because she had some strange psychological need (which she pokes fun at) -She collected finger puppets religiously. She had quite the collection. -She met her husband in college when she asked him to fill out a survey about his sexual habits for her... psychology course, or something. They later started living together, and he proposed to her with a ring made of tinfoil in the aisle of a candy store. -She took until her 20s to learn how to drive, and she learned in New York City with her boyfriend/fiancee. It was a horrible experience that drove her to panicked tears several times. There was one incident later where she "made the smoothest, most adult left-hand turn of her life" (or something) and then immediately took the door off another vehicle. I swear the title of this is "micro-(something)s", but google isn't giving me anything, and neither is my library catalogue.

I read a science fiction short story years ago in which a man notices that perforated paper rarely tears where it's supposed to. He figures that the perforations actually make the paper stronger and works out a way to make those perforations in such a way that the result is an invisible sheet of "substance" that is indestructible. I thought it was funny and brilliant.

Hello! I am looking for a book about three Japanese children growing up in Japan before the WW2/serial killer. It is a book for adult, it is a drama/thriller with a twist at the end.I am not sure, I assume the author is also Japanese; the book can be contemporary- I read it between 2005 and 2014. I do not remember how the cover looks like. There are brother and sister and they are well-off. The third child is main character of the novel-a poor boy, classmate of the brother (or child of their maid or house keeper?) and he is in love with the rich girl. As teenagers they end up together (become lovers) and eventually the poor boy becomes her husband and moves up socially. The young man's first sexual experience had shaped and changed him. He is not capable of performing his marital duties but girl still loves him and they stay married. During the WW2,he get the rank, he works as a scientist (maybe) at some military factory away from home and he is seeing his wife and in-laws only on weekends. At the end of the novel the factory get bombarded together with his laboratory/office? and it is being discovered that he was the serial killer and rapist. He had kidnapped, raped, tortured and killed more than 60? young girls from that region but there was a war and the police had less authority than army. Throughout the novel we see the world through his eyes, there is a lot of monologue and the end was a surprise to me. Very creepy end indeed. Thank you for any information!

I think she either got kidnapped or sold in one part of the book and her dad died.. Sorry it's so vauge :( I remember the cover of the book though.. It was paper back, and it had blue sky, the huts in the village and people walking.. In a sort of chinese style drawing... I'm from the uk btw, don't know if that makes a difference.

Looking for a dumb book where a guy really likes a girl, and this book's not very interesting, so the main parts I remember is the guy cut his hand on a bottle at one point and she paid attention to him. They wind up together, but it's really boring, both are unhappy, it's not a happy book, they don't really have that "perfect marriage" and she fights/leaves him I think, but comes back later. This book was old, nothing recent, I read it back in 2010 and I think it was a good decade or two older if not more.

I am looking for a book/author. The book is set in Florida. A husband takes his wife on vacation to stay in a motel that and his family stayed as a child, I think to celebrate an anniversary. They get into all kinds of mishaps along the way, including a drug deal gone bad across the street. In a strange way they become targets by police and drug dealers. Fun, fast moving and raw without a lot of profanity. Dave Barry kind of style. Any help? I can be reached at 1oldtmr6@gmail.com Thanks

I am looking for a book which I lost in 1975. It was readers digest publication which compiled a number of important articles which probably were published by the readers digest in the past. I guess the book was published definitely before 1950. Two of the articles compiled in this publication were as follows: (1) At the age of 79 I am a young man but with grey hair.(At the start of the article there is a photograph of a stout person with grey hair) (2) Article concerned about a novel written by an author which after few attempts he discarded and threw it in the waste paper basket. Subsequently he retrieved the script and completed the novel which became a best seller and was translated into many languages. There were other important articles having a life changing impact and we're compiled in the form of a book. If you could help in finding this book you would regard me for my efforts for the last 40 years.

I am looking for a young adult fiction novel. I remember the cover to be a blue cover with a girl in a dress on the front kind of half running half jumping. And you cant really see her face. Its about a kidnapped girl who ends up having an intimate relationship with her captor. There is also a pregnancy scare because she threw up after taking the pill and had sex right after. There is also a little girl in the story. I believe she is somehow related to the captor but she is fairly young and apparently overweight and is forced by an older woman figure to wear tight clothing to help motivate her weight loss. I have been looking for this book for over 5 years now and if someone could help me you would be my life saver!!!

I'm looking for a book about a woman who is recovering from something. She's living at a house near a swamp and describes the nature around her. I think she describes the spiders in her house, the birds at the swamp, and possibly a frog. I remember one part where she's walking on a wall and she sees her neighbors picking a giant mushroom. She later says that they made it into a soup and that she was upset about that for some reason. I don't remember the title or the author. I think I read it around 8-11th grade. The author uses a lot of imagery. I remember that she writes down everything that she observes. She lives alone and I think that she may be recovering from a sort of mental illness or something. I've been looking for almost a year!

This same girl likes to chew grape gum and I think breaks her arm falling off a horse. Another thing I remember is the girl takes the potato farm girl clothes shopping with the mother's credit card. I think the cover is of two girls, one making a face while trying to comb the other girls hair.

He spills coffee all down her then sends an expensive shirt to her work even though he only got her name. They get together and she has half moon- fingernail scars on her neck and face. There from her mum and she would attack in the night, so as an adult she still sleeps with her foot on the floor. She still pays for her mums rent, I believe the mum has bipolar so she thinks she going to be like it? He sees the scars when they shower together and all her make-up is washed off.

He had surgery on it, and was placed in a rehabilitative hospital. For 9 months the leg never healed at all. He read books, magazines, then someone brought him a Bible. He read God's promises and challenged Jesus' verse in Matthew, "Whatever you ask for in pray, believe you receive it, and you will have it" So he told everyone at the end of 90 days his leg would be healed and he would walk. But the leg never showed signs of healing. But on the 90th day, they went to check on him, and he was up packing his clothes & his leg was 100% healed!

It's a romance story featuring a young woman whose going for some type of interview or something near the beginning, but what sticks in my head is that she's wearing a charm bracelet and one of the charms has been falling off. I believe that also happens when she meets the love interest in the story as well. She later reveals that the charm has some significance and is not replaceable. I think the book was a Harlequin or Silhouette - or one of the divisions of that publishing group, but I'm not certain. I'd appreciate any help. It's been bothering me that I can't remember more, and I truly liked the author's writing style.

I'd like to track down a novel I read in early 2004 (I remember the date precisely because I read it in the flat I was renting while I had the builders in at home). I can't recall the title or author. Only that it was by a British (likely female, not famous) author, probably published around 2002-04, or shortly before. It was set in contemporary London and centred around an unhappily married couple, mainly the woman. The most memorable aspect of the book, the key aspect really, was the woman's recollections of - and random encounters with -her previous home addresses in and around London during the course of story. This was the main recurring motif of the book, and I remember the blurb focused on that aspect too. Randomly, I can recall a reference to Roupell Street near Waterloo East station in the story. Anybody?

Hello avid book readers can anyone help me find a book written prior to 1958. The first chapter was read to me in school by our Head of English,so I'm assuming it is a well regarded book. I remember a young boy looking in the window of a second hand or maybe junk shop and seeing a glass ball. A shaft of light falls on the ball,and the boy saw what I remember as another world,seeing a castle with turrets surrounded with glass balls one of which was missing ( presumably the one in the shop window ). Around the castle flew enormous birds,which I seem to remember as pterodactyl type birds. That might be more down to my imagination than fact. This book or the beginning of it has haunted me for many years,can anyone solve this for me please i would like to finish the storey? I will be delighted to donate £10 to a charity of their choice.

I want to find a book that I read when I was small. This is what I can recalled of the plot, but sadly I do not remember the author's name or the title. It is about a boy who was on his way to visit his sick grandmother/aunt by travelling on a train. His mother had given him some money for him to give to her and had hooked it to is trousers. On his journey, he met a suspicious man. The boy felt asleep and he was awake he found that his money was missing. He managed to see the suspicious man leaving the train. The boy didnt have money for the rest of the journey, so he decided to follow him into a town/village. A group of boys in the village spotted the boy suspiciously following the man, so they enquired him. The boy explained the situation and that if the man had money with holes on it, it would surely belong to him. News spread fast in the village and with the help of a lot of boys in the village, they confronted the man. That is all I recalled. Thanks.

I can't remember how it ended but I think he may have started to try and abuse the daughter and they killed him. It was around the late 90's early 2000's, maybe set in the New England area, but I could be wrong. Thanks!

The book I'm looking for is a YA novel about a girl who has always lived in the shadow of her older, adventurous, party girl sister. I remember they highlighted the fact that her sister used to sneak in through her window in the morning after she had been out all night partying. One day her sister is murdered, I think she had been emailing online with a guy who told her he could take professional pictures of her because she wanted to be a model, or something along those lines. When she went to meet the guy, he murdered her instead. I think this was revealed later on in the story though. The little sister ends up kind of having a thing with the dead sisters older boyfriend too. That's really all I remember. Please help!

I'm trying to find a book that I read a few years ago, all I remember is that it was a romance mystery book. I remember that in the first chapter police find a dead body in this woman's greenhouse. I'm pretty sure she dates a detective and decides to become a private investigator. The first book has a pink cover and I'm pretty sure there is a yellow ribbon involved in the title or picture somewhere. Thanks in advance!!

hi everyone, i read this book once it was a young adult book, possibly horror. the plot went something along the lines of this. a group of teenagers go for a road trip i believe there were 5 of them 3 guys and 2 girls, (one of the girls has a scar on her face from battery acid exploding on it) they pick up this random girl who was hitchhiking. it turns out the girl was evil and she started to slowly turn the group against each other and get rid of them one by one till the girl with scar stopped her. (the girl with the scar was also the last one standing).

Hi everyone I was trying to remember a contemporary romance (western sort of) that I read a few years ago. The woman actually went up to the man to ask him to marry her, because she needed protection from her ex for herself and her husband. The woman had a nasty scar on one of her cheeks from the ex beating her. The daughter was young. I am thinking the guys name was Prescott or Prentiss but not totally sure. Anyways, during the course of the story the ex either breaks out of jail or is released and he comes back and taunts her on the ranch, doing little thingg, eventually he kills the little calf that the daughte was nursing back to health. Also, he had basically raped her the night before she left him and pressed charges and the child was the conception of that. in the end he gets killed, i remember that. Does anyone have ANY idea what book this was? I read authors like Diana Palmer and JOan Johnston and Linda Howard but not sure if this will help. I hope someone can help as it is driving me crazy! Thanks.

I read this book back in 2007 for a creative writing class in college. I don't remember the title, author, or plot points! All I remember is that it's about a young female - and I vaguely remember her mother being in the picture, but she was kind of off. The author/character voice uses made up words throughout the story. The book cover has red and yellow, and the title is rather long. I feel like it's science fiction-based or uses a lot of science themes. Someone, please help! Thank you!

Hi. I am trying to remember this book I read when I was a little kid between 2003-2006. All I can remember about this book was that it was on another planet and/or it was futuristic. It was a girls birthday and on the kid's birthdays they got some sort of special gift.I think it was like a sphere or crystal or something I'm not sure. I think she broke hers or something. I think the cover was pink or purple. I don't remember too much but I just remember that I loved this book.

I am looking for a book from 40+ years ago about two young people(girl and boy) who run away from home. Not many details to add, I think they were teenagers but can't remember. I'm also looking for a book about a young girl who goes to live with relatives after her father disappears. There's an elevator in the house, but she is forbidden to use it. She also receives a scroll(?) in the mail from her father with clues, and she and a friend use the scroll to solve what happened to her father.

The book I read was around 2011, I was in middle school and it was about a not so well behaved boy who lived with his mother and because of his behavior was sent to live with his uncle, while on his trip to his uncle house which was really far away due to 1 fourth of the book having to do with the boy being in the train ride, when he arrives his uncles house he sees how rich his uncle is because of his huge house with huge yards. His uncle is not at all there because he is busy and the only thing he tells the boy is to not look over a stone wall that seemed to border(hide) something. The boy looks over the stone wall and finds out about magic and dragons that were in a book and I believe somewhere towards the end he does a spell in which the stone wall falls and it lets some dragons free or something and it opens his eyes to the magic that has been in his family. I hope you can really help me find the book because I have been going crazy over trying to find it and reread it.

There is a big tree in the village square and the Prince sees a girl visit the tree every night... He doesn't know her but he wants to meet her.

Please help! I am looking for a book I read my freshmen year in highschool. I picked it randomly off a shelf but it was so good I fell in love with it. It turned out to be the last book in a series I think. The main character was a girl, she was inbred (her mom and dad were brother and sister), and she had a deformed foot because of it. In the begining she's living with her dad in their cave house, he's teaching her magic I think. We are introduced to a friend of hers, kind of like a trader person. Then I can't remember too too much but her evil grandmother ends up coming in, her father has gone missing, and her grandmother urges her to go back to the family home. She teaches her to use glamor and the girl does go, travelling with the traders. She gets there, most of it is a blur from here on out, but there's an older man who's trying to marry her, she ends up nearly getting one of her cousins (i think cousin) killed who becomes badly burned and scarred for the rest of her life as a result, she finds out her grandmother is tricking her and starts defying her, there's somewhat of a battle, and then she ends up living on a island at the end with the trader boy. Please help me find it I know a few friends who would love to read it!

The first chapter had a dark and stormy night where the main character was a man. They had a scene where the main character was walking down a hallway in the castle while it was raining and was happy that there were tapestries hanging in the corners to help with the drafts. it was a fantasy/mystery type of book. I would be beyond happy if anyone remembers the book and can help me find it.

The fictitious story I am trying to find was written by a woman who, once she grew up, became a vet in Appalachia. as a child, she grew up on a fishing island off the eastern seaboard. She had a best friend, Cal. Cal knew all of her struggles with her "perfect" sister (who Cal ended up marrying). Near the end of the story, there was a huge storm. Early in the story, there was mention of the fact that only "Caroline" (I think that's the sister's name) could coax music from the piano; somehow there wasn't enough money for many things, but the "perfect" sister was favored enough that she received the expensive piano lessons.

I only remember that humans had some kind of problem with them. A young woman went to "talk" to them. Due to the communication issues/incompatibility issues, she wound up in some kind of statis and remains there still. As I recall, the last line was something like "There seems to be a kind of music around her."

I am looking for a Science Fiction book. I can't remember allot about it. I don't think it was a Ringworld sequel but the size of the construction was similar. It had a man that was lost/exploring the seemingly endless layers/levels and opening doors to dangerous machinery of unknowable function. I believe the structure was built around a planet or maybe a star. I believe I read it in the mid to late 70’s.

I've been looking for a children's book or even a series of books that was likely published in the 1940s about the magic adventures of a group of kids. It was like the Mary Poppins stories but they were never with an adult. A specific chapter I remember was about them finding a discarded book in the neighborhood that was the story of their life, but when they got to the page where they found the book, the pages wouldn't turn. They had a pet cat who often came with them. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I've literally been wanting to find it for the past forty years! It was a library book at a military base in Furth am Bayern, Germany in the early 70s.

Hello! I'm looking for a children's book that I just used to love. I know that I owned it in the mid 1960's. The "plot" is about a young girl who was invited out on a date and she just is not sure what to wear. So she tries on outfit after outfit with a girlfriend that are shown on the pages of the book. Some are super-fancy - some are super casual. I think at the end she ends up going to a casual barbeque wearing slim pants and black flats...and all is well with the world. Does anyone know what I am talking about. I was born in 1961 - so it would have been popular with girls growing up in that window of time. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I LOVED that book!!!

All I can remember is there was a young girl who receives a charm bracelet for a birthday and then gets a new charm for each following birthday, the charms maybe had magic in them or powers but not completely sure about that part. I hope someone can help with this as it will play on my mind until I can figure it out! Thank you for reading x

I've been looking for this book and for the life of me I can't remember the title. The main character of the book is a young woman, about debutante age (in fact she makes her society debut in the book) who is trying to find her father's killer. She does this by donning a mask and going out as the notorious thief, The Cat. She holds up carriages and robs the patrons of jewelry--which she later returns. It's discovered later in the book that the reason she does this is because of what she witnessed when she saw her father murdered. She has a younger sister, a mother, and a stepfather. Does anyone know the title of this book?

His mistress alsovhad two children with the man. Once the mistress found out about his family she killed herself and the children. The cover was predominantly black. That I am sure of. May have had something golden on the front as well. Maybe a wedding ring. Any help appreciated. Thanks !

For HannahLindsay: The book you are looking for is called Shadow Spinner. It's by Susan Fletcher. It's about Shahrazad, the one who told the stories of the 1001 nights. The main character is disfigured by her mother, just as you said, to stop her being married to the Sultan, who was marrying girls and then killing them the next day. I really like this book, it is one of my "let's just read a really well told, interesting, and familiar story, that's not too stressful" books, for when I want to relax. I hope you get this message :)

Firstly, I'm fascinated that an article from 2004 still had such an active thread alive. Secondly, christiw, you may be looking for The Book of Three from The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander. Thirdly, chrisg23, you're book is definitely Homebody by Orson Scott Card. Great book. Great author. So, my turn. Two much older books. I read both of them in 1980, they were current selections from The Science Fiction Book Club. one is about colonists on another planet. All the women get pregnant the same day. All go into labor the same day. the children who survive (most were stillborn) develop powers. the two that stick in my head are a girl who can summon birds to surround her and she changes into a giant bird. I don't remember the second one's power, but she was born a true hermaphrodite with complete male and female parts. the doctors remove the male portion at birth. she spends her life mourning the death (murder) of her brother. a separate entity sharing her body in the womb who died with the castration. There were other children And I think they come together to protect something about the planet. Second book will be easier to recognize if you've read it. First clue, they use the word "gestalt" to describe the bond the main characters share. It introduced me to the term. It is a group of outcasts drawn together by instinct. once together they find that they need each other and gain a sense of purpose. There are twin black girls, a morbidly obese woman, a withdrawn skinny boy and a few others. one of them,I think the boy, was telekinetic. This next is graphic but that is why it stuck in my memory. He would telekinetically transfer waste directly from the bedridden obese woman's bowels to a distant part of the woods.The woman was maybe the psychic who linked them. Or maybe it was the girls. And I'm pretty sure there are a couple others. Concept was fascinating and it'd love to re-read. Hoping that I get some direct karmic response for my sharing what I knew of the other two. Happy hunting all.

Victoria, I believe the book you're looking for is Rose Madder by Stephen King. It has an abused woman whose husband is a police officer, and she does become a voice actress in the end. She also meets a nice guy. Her husband comes after her, and it's very suspenseful.

I must have read it fifteen years ago, or more. In the beginning, a woman is being abused by her husband, who happens to be a police officer. This makes it virtually impossible to report the abuse, without some cover up happening. He threatens her saying he'll find her wherever she goes, so she'd better just stay put. She finally escapes him, gets a job as a voice actress... I don't remember the rest. I'd like to read it again. I believe it MAY have been considered a romance novel--she might have not only done well for herself, but also met a great fella and lived happily ever after (I don't remember for sure if HEA happened for her). Anyway, thanks in advance for your help.

I have found the book I posted about on Oct 1st. The title of the book is Great Stories for Young Readers. It was put out by Readers Digest in 1969. The story of the young boy with the ghost was called Jimmy Takes Vanishing Lessons. A great book with great stories for kids and adults.

Am looking for a short story (possibly 60s) about a man who commutes everyday by train, who thinks about his family until halfway point at which time he then thinks about work. It may have been called "meat" because his wife becoming a vegetarian is one of the first 'problems' about which he thinks until halfway point, etc.

Hello! I'm looking for a novel I read in middle school. I don't remember much but what I do remember was this. It was a fiction book about a girl whose mother disfigured her feet in order to protect her from being picked out of the girls to maybe marry or something. I think the girl then becomes just a servant for the person who was picking young girls.

Im looking for a book about a girl/ young woman who is an orphan and she travels to find out about her past. She somehow goes back in time and meets this girl who is slightly wild. And they travel and meet a clan of some sorts. She reads the man's mind as he asks her what he wanted to be when he grew up and she lists things like sailor, fisher and carpenter. She sees her friend and this man become close and then starts to travel back to the present time. But she sees that this man and woman have a child and she realises it is her. I think it is set in Scotland or Ireland.

I am looking for a book from the 70's but could be earlier about a baby bear that takes "bad" medicine. I thought it was called Brown Bear and the Bad Medicine, but can't find it any where. It had blue cover with gold and the pages had an illustration on every page. May have been a Golden Book but not sure of that either. Basically Momma Bear gives medicine to the baby bear and he has nightmares or something like that. Thanks!!

Read a book in elementary school, between 1992 and 1995. The details are a little fuzzy, but from what I remember there is a servant girl, a tower, a jail in the tower and a boy that she either helps escape or helps his relative escape. It's set in the past, and the girls "boss" isn't kind to her. There may have been a clock in the tower. The door to the tower is on the inside of an arch, and I remember some kind of tunnel or something. Not a lot to go on, but I am going nuts! This book would be a shorter book, I don't believe it had chapters. Elementary school age. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi! I just found the book I was looking for... Its called Whispers from the Dead by Joan Lowery Nixon. I also have another book that I have been searching for. I bought it at the library for a quarter (it was a going out of business sale). The book is small and has a purple cover. It is a mystery / puzzle book that you can solve to figure out the mystery. Its also for readers in elementary or middle school. The content of the book is related to who is the father (or parent... I can not remember) of two children. From what I remember, the book was a puzzle that you decided the answer based off of solving riddles and reading the pages out of order based off of the directions. I never finished the book, my teacher wanted to borrow it and never returned it. Thanks!

I don't remember why, but her family moved into a great mansion. There she met a ghost and tried to help solve her murder. The ghost was the ghost of a Hispanic maid. She also found a boyfriend - but he turned out to be the murderer and tried to kill the girl when she figured it out. I don't remember the author or the name of the novel, but I would really love to reread this book if possible. If anyone knows the name of this please respond.

While traveling, she thinks somebody is trying to kill her. At the end of the book, she finds out that she's been pretending to be her brother this whole time. He was dead all along. I think the cover of the book is green & black with a house at the top but a tree at the bottom as if it was the houses reflection.

She ends up getting rich and famous and lives in New York and stars on Broadway. She also time travels to ancient Egypt all while people are out to get her and the object that gives her her powers. I want to say she also has a dog and the books were quite thick for me when I was in middle school,probably around 300-450 pages. The books were bright and sparkly on the cover and I'm not positive but I'm inclined to think the main characters name started with a P

It was about someone who stumbles upon a human sacrifice in the forest, and spends the book trying to flee from the men performing the sacrifice. The protagonist runs across some woman and her son on a farm who help them but I believe they ultimately get killed as well? The antagonists turn out to be demons I believe, but end up getting chased off when a gang of bikers shows up blaring music, and it breaks some kind of spell? It is driving me nuts that I can't figure out what book this was.

I am looking for a book which (I am almost certain) was called 'Wounded Heart'. It was a thin, flimsy book and I believe the story was one which had been published in a women's magazine or it was a supplement to that. I vaguely remember the story as being one in which the girl crashes her car near some woods and a doctor who is working there - probably with foresters or something - comes to the rescue and takes care of her in a log cabin. I was wondering whether anyone could help me with this? ANY idea at all about what the publication could be? I've tried googling but it's hard googling without an idea as to the publication. They were thin books - not really paperback size, thinner than that and were possibly printed from what were previously serialised stories in women's magazines.

Hi. Looking for a book I read around 1994, when I was 14, although the book definitely wasn't for 14 year olds. It is about two men who are in medical school, sometime between say 1900 and 1940, in either England or America. Specific scenes I remember from the book There is an urban legend at the school that only by throwing a cigarette off a balcony and over a fence can you ensure your graduation. Man takes several attempts but finally does it, becoming friends with the man who told him of the legend. First guy does well in med school and gets a 90ish? on his exam, while his friend barely passes with a 78? They go their separate ways career wise but still stay in touch. First guy is dating a woman who ends up with measles or chicken pox and lets him see her spots in a "revealing location". Its been ages, but I'd like to find it again. Any help is appreciated.

Karen, I think the book you want might be Green Darkness by Anya Seton. It is about a 20th century American woman who marries an Englishman. Her husband is haunted by the memory of a 16th century ancestor who was a monk, broke his vows and came to a bad end. He attacks his wife and while unconscious she relives the life of the woman who was in love with the monk. There is an Indian doctor who helps to save her. She finds that all the 20th century people around her were reincarnations of people in Tudor England and in the end the karmic debt is paid. It is odd that the only other book I have identified on this site was also by Anya Seton.

Looking for a book that came out probably between 1990-2003. About a boy (Ned?) whose hand gets turned into gold somehow and he needs dragon's blood to cure it and goes on a big adventure to find dragons. He has a girl companion I believe. They are walking through mountains and every time the wake up they are at the start of the mountains until someone tells them the mountains are like waves and they ride a house boat through. I think there was also the city of Reme like an alternate history where Remus defeated Romulus. Something about baths being heated through the floors. The end they find dragons but the blood doesn't work and he needed the plant dragon's blood which was on his front steps.

I've been looking for a book for years that I read maybe ... five-six years ago. I can't remember the name or the author. So it's about these kids who end up having powers (from their parents). And the main kid is like the "Flash". Also, it shows it as everything being frozen (but if he stays in one place too long they slowly realize he's there and can see him). The beginning (how he finds his powers): a bus almost hits his friend's younger sibling but somehow the main character and the sibling are on the other side of the street, safe. Near the end, he's in a facility and is running around with people trying to catch him. It MIGHT have been a series. If anyone has any ideas??? I keep wanting to say it's "The (something) Prophecy" but I could be way wrong. I've looked everywhere.

I know that the whole "city" is heated with a huge furnace that burns basically everything that isn't from there. The girl spends some time beelzebub and she is able to get up to the "normal" world and she ends up meeting this boy and they fall in love, and then somewhere near the end of the book the boy kills himself in a bathtub but (of course) the demon/girl brings him back to life.

The book has something to do with Green Velvet and maybe a light or lantern maybe in the title or storyline and it also has a sickly woman her doctor friend their spouses or significant others and time travel or reincarnation. The book was hard bound so I think it was older book and not a romance paperback and the cover (not dust jacket) was green fabric but not velvet. They also were somewhere in Europe and were staying at a mansion or castle. I did not get to read much of it during the 80's but do not think it was part of the paperback romance novels since it was hardbound and kind of older sort of book. The nearest thing to it was the Reincarnation of Lucrezia Borgia book on Amazon but that came out way after this one.... so is not the same book. Any and all help is greatly appreciated!

Here are the hints he gave me: •He saw it around 2003-2009 •Thinks it was a featured book at the store, so could be a decent seller •Could be autobiographical/semi-fiction memoir •It was about a man battling recurring prostate cancer & chronicling the journey •Wife or girlfriend was very involved •The protagonist's career was writer or artist •Would talk to dog about it and dog would talk back •More novel-like than medical. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

I know this is a long shot but here it goes...This book is fiction, the author is the main character of the story, she has trouble sleeping at night, there are people lined up outside her house and she feels they want their story told. One of them enters her home and is in her bedroom, he is a male that lives a simple life. He works at a art dealership. One day a young girl who turns out to be a runaway later in the story enters the art shop to keep warm. he offers her a cup of coffee.

Hello, I read this book a long time and have been looking for it! It is a romance novel by someplace like Harlequin but not Harlequin, I think. It was the second in a series and each book followed a new best friend falling in love. The second book is about the best friend who is either a baker or has her own coffee shop? She was a former "fat chick" so is really self-conscious. She starts to fall in love with this new fancy chef who is in town. She has a stalker who burns down her shop. Has anyone heard of this? I remember that the first one in the story was about the best friend who falls in love with a doctor. Any help would be appreciated.

I am looking for a book that I read a few years back and I cannot remember the name of it, I want to read it again as well as find the sequel to said book. It has a submarine that falls through the ocean floor and ends up going through something and finds itself on dry land with various planes and ships that were lost at sea around the Bermuda triangle or some similar place. They end up in a world that is different from the one they left behind, there is magic and I think it was set in the 1980s at least to start with, but I cannot for the life of me remember the name.... Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I'm looking for a book about a girl, a princess I believe. She lives in a kingdom with her father,but he's a horrid man. He feeds her this nasty-tasting herb that makes her burn any living thing she touches. It takes her a while before she knows he's doing it though, she believes that she was born like this in the beginning. Her mom isn't around, I think she died when she was born, but I don't remember. But the first time she knew she could never touch any living thing was when her dad got her a puppy (cruel, right? Considering he obviously knows she burns anything she touches.) She was so excited when the puppy ran up to her, equally excited. When the puppy got to her and she picked it up, it screamed and squealed and writhed in pain. She quickly released the puppy, horrified by what she had done and started bawling. From that day her dad made her believe she was evil and terrible. But she and her best friend who works in the stable quickly find out that he is the terrible one. He keeps her locked away in her room so she can never leave after she upsets him, but I don't remember what she does to do so. She plans an escape and that's all I can remember... Does anyone know what book this is? I would love to read it again, and finish it this time!

Hi I am looking for a book I read last year. It is about a girl falling in love with an older man. The story was written as the girl narrating, somewhat like flashbacks. Later in the book, the man was charged and the girl was sent to some mental hospital. The book ended with the girl receiving some clue from the man through the psychiatrist and ended up meeting the man in a museum in Paris again. It would be great if anyone could provide even a small detail so that I can find the book, thanks a lot

Hello there, I thought I'd try this site because it really is my last resort to find a book I truly have spent years searching for. It was either a Silhouette, Mills & Boon or eHarlequin published book, author unknown and title unknown. I can't remember the synopsis to the detail, but I know of some scenes that definitely happened in the book. Any suggestions if much appreciated. The male female characters name is Kate (I think, not so sure as it's been so long since I read the book.) She's hiding out in a cabin located in the mountains because some bad guys want information she has that could start World War 3. Her ex, who I know is some form of retired officer of the law, is sent to protect her, much to her dismay. But he's the only one she can trust. Bad men show up at the cabin and if I'm correct, a gunfight starts. To get away, Kate and her ex have to cross a river in which Kate almost drowns because she twists her foot and loses balance. Her ex saves her, as is the same in romance books and soon after they hunker down in a cave until Kate decides she must confront the person who wants her. During this, Kate fights off someone and the two stumble out of a window, lucky Kate is hanging on for dear life. All ends well. If any of you have ever read this and it jumps out at you, please please please try to name the author or the book you thought of.

Ends up at a dirty pawn or antique shops where she starts to work. I think the owner gets sick. She starts to clean up the shop and improves the business. I remember her cleaning the windows and renting a machine to sand the floors. There was a boy which is nice sweet romantic side to the tale. Any help would be great

He had to marry the King's niece who was an average looking girl with dark glasses. On their honeymoon to Italy, a famous designer changed her looks and he started falling in love with her without realising it was his wife all along. He decided to get a divorce after their honeymoon get over but the girl dressed up as the woman he fell in love with and they lived happily ever after. I've been looking for this book for many years.

I am looking for a book i read in 2006 or 2007. The book is a Christian book. The main characters are the Mom and two sisters. From what I can remember the dad runs out to run an errand and is killed in a car wreck on base. (Army base I believe) The mom meets a guy who is Christian and the daughter wants nothing to do with this religion. One of the sisters falls in love with a pilot who tricks her into thinking he is a bachelor. Turns out he is married with two kids. The other sister is a writer but writes under another name. She becomes a number one seller in the story. (I think she is working on her new book about a police detective.) This sister does end up becoming Christian meets a guy and they buy a house on the edge pf town. I am not sure what sister breaks down in her jeep and has to walk and the house she does find happens to be the home of a Christian women. She invites to prayer group. I do believe at the end of this story all three women become Christians. Other than I do not recall much more about this book. I do know when I read this book it touched my soul. Made me think about God and faith and how we all need to belong to a faith and nonbelievers can become believers.

I remember they go to a burger place and it is the first time he's had a burger. He enjoys it so much he saves the burger wrapper. He later goes to his friends house she gives him clothes and lets him use her shower. She wants to clean him up before meeting her parents so they do not judge him. I also remember the front may have an illustration of the boy in front of a brick building of some sort. Please help! I'm dying to finish this book. It's been haunting me for years! TIA

Suspence romance i believe written around 2005, starts out about woman who is married but talking to a man on a chat site,she feels guilty because she is married but justifies it by saying shes only talking online and its harmless, one day she decides to run away from home i think because she knows her husband wants to kill her but im not sure how she finds out, the guy she qas talking to online finds it funny that he hasnt heard from her, or maybe she id she wouldnt be able to talk to him, either way he looks into finding her with what he knows because he senses trouble, i think hes a detective or something...at some point as shes "running away" the man online finds her but i dont think he tells her who he is, he just kind of "befriends" her,she doesnt know if she can trust him, at some point they make love is a barn or cabin and the husband finds her but i believe the online guy kills him in the end. Maybe im getting mixed up and the husband was a cop, This isnt the nicholas sparks book

It was about an alcoholic lawyer who was down on his luck and trying to make a come back. I believe he moved for a small community for a fresh start. His client was accused of murder. The story line also had a biker gang and the lawyer's ex-wife or girlfriend.

I remember the kid going to an older lady( witch maybe?) house and there was this bog he had to cross. the older lady had quick sand pits in front of the house to catch any intruders. there was also a dragon. i remember the kids riding on the dragon and landing in a lake (or some sort of body of water). two of the kids ended up on a island that was very dark, were they climed into the trees to escape the rats(i think) that were on the ground. the trees were actually alive and talked to the boys until morning. Please someone help me figure out what this title is, cause if not, that means my imagination has been at work!

There is this book series about a group of siblings that go to live with an older lady (of some relation) and I know the other books are told from different perspectives of the children. I remember there being a lake and a boat house that the children played in. One moment I remembered focused on the young girl (main character at the time) and how she was growing, and she went swimming shirtless and the old woman came out and fussed at her. I want to say that the second book was told by a boys perspective and something to do with blue.

I am looking for a book that I read approx when I was a teen, over 25 years plus. Its one of the mills and boon best seller romances. I lent it to a friend and it was confiscated and destroyed. The story is about an 18 yr old girl, who falls in love with I think her father's best friend or a family friend and he tries to avoid her because she is too young for him. Then he gets injured in a boating accident on a yacht and badly damages his leg, and they reconnect after many issues. Hopefully I am getting this story right. The ending is him carrying her in his arms while its raining outside. Its maybe based on a Greek island or some such.

I'm looking for a book I read over 20 years ago...it was about a girl who gets sent to, or finds another realm where she meets a group of people who eat only natural organic food and can fly. The bad guys live in a polluted city and only eat artificial stuff, and as a result are too heavy to fly without jetpacks. I think the cover had a couple of them chasing one of the good guys through the sky above the city. The bits I remember are - ~ The girl didn't believe she could fly, so they gave her a 'magic' feather that would let her. There's a scene where one character says they think someone is coming and says 'Up into the trees' or similar, so they fly up and the girl forgot about the feather and flew without it. ~ 2 adult characters get kidnapped and held prisoner by the bad guys, a man and a woman. They are given food and drink, but find out the passion-fruit pips are plastic after cracking one with their nails. ~ In around the same time, the children they care for are trying to rescue them...a couple of the children had been given some sort of candy covered in white powder by an old crazy one of the bad guys, and they use the powder to whiten their skin so they can look like the bad guys and rescue their friends. I'm sorry I can't remember more. I hope there's someone who recognizes these bits out of it and can tell me what the title is.

I think the girl takes up painting (with watercolors?) under the tutelage of a neighbor. Title might include words like house of..., child of..., glass, light. I've been searching for this book for my entire adult life to no avail and would appreciate any direction or insight.

I am looking for a young adult fiction novel. I remember the cover to be a blue cover with a girl in a dress on the front kind of half running half jumping. And you cant really see her face. Its about a kidnapped girl who ends up having an intimate relationship with her captor. There is also a pregnancy scare because she threw up after taking the pill and had sex right after. There is also a little girl in the story. I believe she is somehow related to the captor but she is fairly young and apparently overweight and is forced by an older woman figure to wear tight clothing to help motivate her weight loss. I have been looking for this book for over 5 years now and if someone could help me you would be my life saver!!!

I had this A5 paperback book that I loved very much around late 1970's - early 80's. It's about circular fairisle knitting, one guy in a photo had a tank top in fairisle farm animals and there was instructions also on how to make an Icelandic parka coat. It was a kind of folky knitting/sewing book with people in it from denmark/Sweden rather than English people, one woman was called Elsa. I know its not much to go on, but I would *love to finds a copy again if you can help me with this.

There is book I read that is very similar to the Lindbergh kidnapping story but was fictional. At first I thought it was a Mary Higgins Clark book but can't find anything in her books. Does anyone remember a book like this?

Looking for a book I read several years ago. It was about a family living in a small southern town. The dad whose nickname was Pink is a real estate agent. The mom had a catering service. Their son's name was Grayson and I can't remember the daughter's name. She was the daughter of a previous marriage from the mom whose ex husband is now an actor. The girl was killed one night after their small town fair. I think the son had something to do with it.

I'm looking for a book that I read several years ago, I think it was an autobiography but the things the woman went through made it seem like it was almost a novel. The woman worked at a circus and was promoted to stand in the cage while two guys rode motorbikes around her. She ended up marrying one of them. She was pregnant with his child when he pushed her and she had a miscarriage, I think he used to beat her regularly? But she ended up having two babies with him when he was offered a job in a middle eastern country or Dubai? But she had to ride a motorbike in the cage with him, i think she had an accident where the yellow pvc boots she was required to wear came loose and got caught into the bike and she ended up having a leg injury. She wanted to escape from her husband as he was still beating her so she moved to South Africa with her 2 children, the husband was supposed to supply the plane ticket (gave her a fake one so she would be sent back although they allowed her through). She looked for jobs in South Africa and found one so she had one of the older ladies in the apartment building to look after her children. The lady went upstairs and left the children downstairs so she could have coffee with her friend and the daughter ended up being raped by the cleaner. The mum took the matter to court. She met someone and they married, they moved to New Zealand so he could get a job and ended up having 2 children together.She divorced the guy as he was only leaching off of her and she moved i think to Scotland or in GB somewhere. She ran a school/day-care place for children to come to and met another man that was her true love. They were in love and lived a happy life when the husband died of cancer? I can't remember what happened after that but I would really appreciate it if someone who knows what book I'm talking about to comment because I really enjoyed it and It's frustrating not knowing. Thank you :)

Hi, I'm trying to find the name of a book I read about a guy from England I believe, that starts vacationing with his wife to some island and he winds up going in partners with a local barowner to buy a deserted resort, which they sell for a profit. Kind of a financial thriller.

I'm reposting this in hopes that someone new might know what the book is called. Hey! I don't remember a lot, but hopefully this will help... This is a historical set somewhere in England or Scotland, I think. In the beginning, there are two young (about 17) male twins who go into a tavern. There is this waitress who is also very young. I don't remember much about what happens in the bar, but when the girl goes to leave, she is accosted. The twins, one in particular save her and they take her to their home. Their father agrees to take her in and he treats her as a daughter. (Their family has magic). Years later... For some reason, I think one of the twins and the girl are soulmates or something, but he, for some reason, is trying to stay away from her romantically. However, he comes to her each night, disguised by his magic. She comes to see him as a best friend whom she can talk to about the twin. One night, she some how realizes that it is him. I think she says his name and it makes his true self appear. She feels betrayed and all that, but he is trying to explain to her why he did it (I don't remember why). I think she either leaves to London (or some other large city) or she is sent there because it is no longer safe at their home. Either way, she is sent away, but the twin goes with her, of course. The reason she has to be sent away is because their neighbor is also their enemy and he is starting a war. (He makes a giant or a large dragon appear at night, which eats their livestock. They find out he is using his niece, who doesn't really know she is being played (I think). The other twin falls in love with her.) Anyway, stuff happens and the original woman and twin come back, but they still have some stuff to do (that I don't remember). Their uncle has been a part of this story somehow (I don't remember how), but in the end he has to go meet the council, for some reason (I think he is in some type of trouble or has to stop something from happening). Anyway, by the way the story ends, it seems like there may be a second story with the uncle and his love interest (who I think they introduced, [even though they are not yet together] sometime in the end). I know this is a lot, but I didn't want to leave anything important out. I would be forever grateful if someone could identify this book.

What they don't know is that they are being trained to create a new society in this land; it is not the game they thought it was. They were actually specifically chosen for their roles. They finally come to the realization that they are indeed stranded and they begin to build their society. It's a sci-fi novel with a reading level at about a 7th grade level. Thanks your book might be the ability

Looking for a book I read in the mid 90s. It was a romance novel of sorts with lots of drama and action and suspense. The lovers were separated, he went to war and returned to her being married. She is unhappy in the marriage. She has a child with down syndrome. She is rich, I think the husband is gay. The lovers come bac together and an affair starts. Then she is black mailed from another person and forced to have sex. The child dies in the end by crawling into the sea, I think the husband is killed as well and I cannot recall what happened to her lover. I believe the title may of had, ROSE or STEEL in it. BUt I could be wrong. I think the cover had red rose on it. It was a tragic love story.

I'm trying to find a romance novel I read about a year or two ago. It was about a girl that liked a guy and made herself look foolish. He tried to give her a hint and brought a girl to a party to make her back off. She was hurt and got drunk and decided to get engaged to her other friend that she was sort of dating. She paints and there is a sexy scene at the place she works, selling art I believe, with the original guy that now wants her because she is engaged and not all over him. He calls her little one. She gets mugged at one point and he takes care of her. I know this seemed like I'm rambling but if this seems familiar let me know!

A French man with a shady past and his naive young American bride are honeymooning in a small Paris hotel. He slips out frequently to meet with some street urchins who are connected to his past. A scene late in the novel takes place in an abandoned Metro Station. Does this sound familiar to anyone? Thanks.

It takes months for her to heal and they discover, surprise surprise, she is not an evil creature but a human female. Pretty sure she falls in love with the guy that carried her to the doctors office that wanted to kill her. Also, she knows the doctor because she knows him in her parallel world so she may or may not deliver a message

Hello! I hope someone can help me find a book I read awhile back! It is about two teens (Guy and a girl/ I think?) That it starts out with them laying outside on a pier or something and looking at the stars. Then it switches to a scientists point of view and they are talking about a new disease that has already taken over some cities and basically its like a white fog with (Creatures?) inside of it that kills humans and monkeys (because they are relatively similar in anatomy?) but leaves plants and other animals alone. Anyway the two kids find some sort of computer type thing and they end up getting the winning lottery tickets and buy a yellow submariene and they go on a quest to stop the disease and save humanity. Then the book ends the way it started with them going back in time or something like that. Thank you in advance!!!!

He turns himself into the most handsomest man ever....also his mood affects disasters so when he does something petty there is like a near plane crash. I hope someone can tell me what it is.

It is based in a sci fi/fantasy futuristic world. It was about a female detective/bounty hunter that was put on a recovery mission for a boss/mentor that had been kidnapped. She had some cybernetic optical enhancements that gave her capabilities to see inside a life preservation pod thing to see the person in it. When they retrieve the pod the guy she was hired to retrieve was found dead inside. She winds up being framed for the murder and searched for the real murder. In the end she changes her appearance to look like an elf or something of the life so that she isn't able to be found. If I remember correctly, there is a demon-like creature as the picture on the spine and in a background on the cover. It would have been printed before 2005.

I don't know how old the book is but it was about (going to write what i remember and try not to make it sound to jumbled up) A girl who was at a party, when she was "summoned" to leave the building, because she had "contracted" some weird virus. This guy she had been kissing started freaking out, because he didn't want the virus. She was forced to some (i think) hospital where this lady told her that her father had gone missing somewhere outside the wall. (I guess it protects them?) The lady pretty much black mailed her to leave the "safety zone" and enter the "danger zone" to go look for her dad, he was on some mission for the lady(i think) She has to crawl through a tunnel and finds something of her dads. she meets a soldier who helps her and she meets some other guys, who she falls into a hole filed with murderous creatcers, with. oh and the virus mutates you. Its kinda like the Anime/Mange No.6.(but without the parasitical insects) Any info you have would be AWESOME!

Looking for a book I read about 10 years or so ago and can't recall the title or author. A short summary of the first part would be as follows. A teen living on the northern tip of Long Island when potatoes were a big crop there. He's a very talented baseball player and probably has a college and professional career ahead of him. He has a girl friend who lives on a neighboring farm who he is, for some reason, forbidden to see. He sneaks from his home one night and cuts across on the the potato fields to get to her house. He doesn't realize the that the field has been recently treated with a powerful chemical that gets into his lungs, destroys his health and scotches his chances for advancement in baseball. This haunts him for years to come and changes his life completely. I somehow thought this might me a novel by Dennis LeHane or George Pelicanos as I was reading some of theirs during this period, but I've not found any summary that supports this thought. Thanks for any help that anyone can provide.

I'm looking for a thriller series I was reading several years ago. The premise was that a guy living in an apartment was suddenly handed a cat in a carrier by his neighbor who was being arrested and put in the position of having to take care of it. Shortly thereafter, he heard a commotion at the neighbor's and realized someone was breaking in. Listening at the door, he realized they were discussing coming over to his apartment to search for whatever they wanted. He grabbed the cat and it's carrier and went out the fire escape. It turns out whatever they wanted was in a false bottom of the cat carrier. The guy has to turn into a criminal to escape from the bad guys and can't go to the police without being arrested himself. At one point the bad guys burn his parents house and their car (I think) because they helped him and let him stay there.

I have a book that I read in Middle School, it has something to do with two students male and female or an arrangement like that looking for their missing professor. His house is in the mountains or on a cliff somewhere and they think he might have committed suicide but they throw a rock off the side and it floats back up due to anti gravity technology and then they toss the rock farther out and it falls because the barrier doesn't reach that far and they think the robot might have tossed him over or something. Turns out he was facing a prison sentence, and they don't know that but he was sent back in time with his memory erased to repent for his crimes or something like that. and it's a race against the clock in order to bring him back because the government is planning on terminating all prisoners in the past and I think the last part of the book is them running through the woods but they're too late. I remember a little more but don't really know how to describe it.

His house is in the mountains or on a cliff somewhere and they think he might have committed suicide but they throw a rock off the side and it floats back up due to anti gravity technology and then they toss the rock farther out and it falls because the barrier doesn't reach that far and they think the robot might have tossed him over or something. Turns out he was facing a prison sentence, and they don't know that but he was sent back in time with his memory erased to repent for his crimes or something like that. and it's a race against the clock in order to bring him back because the government is planning on terminating all prisoners in the past and I think the last part of the book is them running through the woods but they're too late. I remember a little more but don't really know how to describe it.

@edenkirch I believe the book you're talking about is called, 'A Great and Terrible beauty' by Libba Bray

I am looking for a book. I have little details. I remember about 20 years ago I would read it at the public library. It had a young lady who was poor, who worked on boats. And the town had this big race to Catalina every year. And at some point she needs a new pair of deck/boating shoes and she spends all her hard earned money to get them. She meets a guy and falls for him. I know, not many details but my memory is failing and I'm wanting my teenage daughter to read it.

I am look for a book that I read several years ago. It is about a girl and her friends in an English all girls school. They are high society girls (most of them). They come across a portal of sorts to a magical world while exploring the grounds. This other world is in danger and the main character worries about how she can save this land from darkness. Everything in the magical world is dying, being swallowed by darkness and there is a magical tree that needs someone that is willing to sacrifice their life and become one with the tree to defeat the darkness that is engulfing the world.

Hi, I've been looking for a book for years now and can't find it or anything similar. I've read it approx. 10 years ago but it might have been around for much longer. I got this idea that it's called Wanderer or Vagabond or something like that. It's based in a fictionnal world. The story starts at the coming of age ceremony of the heroine (where the kids are taken by some airship for like one day) and she somehow doesn't attend it, then she realises that her friends of the same age start to behave strangely (like robots or very responsible adults). She then goes on a trip with one guy (older) that is a wanderer (and didn't have this change of attitude) and end up discovering that they implant some chips in the brains that determine your behavior and jobs. At some point there is a tournament and she wins it, thus she is taken to some kind of town to serve under aliens (that don't breath the normal air). She starts a rebellion and end up killing the aliens and liberating all the humans beings. The END Please tell me you know the title and/or the author?!?!!

I am searching for a child's book published around 1983 to 1987. It is about a giant world eating monster who is on his way to earth to find a boy ( named Bobby I believe). When he gets to earth he jumps out with a roar and is no taller than The boy's shoes laces. My daughter loved this story and wants to read it to her children now.

They live In a town on an isolated island surrounded by a black water. A day comes when he spots someone who looks exactly his brother, so he follows. This guy is unbelievably fast and he sees him jump abnormally high. Later in the book he gets captured and is injected with the black water and he starts to develop these abnormal abilities himself.

I am trying to find a book I read 20 plus years ago. It was a romance . It takes place in New Mexico, the lady is a secretary for an import export company and she marries her boss while in Las Vegas at her sisters wedding to who just happens to marry the other owner of this import export company. The man she marries is very quiet and does not share alot about himself, she finds out that he owns a ranch outside of Santa Fe (I think). Her husband also served in the service and has many dreams of his time in the service. After many ups and downs they finally find and share their feeling for each other. But he still keeps a secret from her, he is being black mailed by an ex girlfriend who says she is pregant with his child, which he knows is not true. This book is full of struggle but still some humor. I would like to find out the author and name of this book as I would like to buy and read it again. There is also a second book and this one is about her sisters romance with her now husband.

She runs away to a small village where she gets a job at the local theater and that is as much as I can remember. I know she solves a mystery that I think involved a kidnapping and murder.

The curtains are always closed so she does not know the time. The girl serves tea to elderly visitors but is not allowed to talk to them. It turns out her brother was shot. Very frustrating trying to remember bits and pieces - would love to read it again to understand it now I am older. Helen

I read this book about 5yrs ago. I can't remember anything about the title or the author and have spent a couple of years trying to find it. Devil moves into town and town folk begin following his every move and suggestion. I remember him living in a big house on a hill and everyone thinks he's the best. One (or more) man sees through the ruse but can't get anyone to listen. Finally there is a big town parade and the master of ceremonies (the devil), determining the townsfolk are ready for the picking, begins throwing loaves of bread to the parade bystanders but the bread becomes moldy or turns into worms or something like this when the people catch them.

I don't remember a whole lot of the book. What I do remember is that a couple of college kids explore a basement of the college, where they get the spooks. They then keep going to college everyday wondering what happened down in the basement. Then someones roommate gets killed. I think the police think it is the roommate that killed him. Then they go to this church thing, and when they try to go again, the man they met is dead.

Her mother I think becomes depressed and doesn't care for her. Her neighbors mother however feeds her from time to time. One night her and her guy friend are out in the playground by the swings. However two guys approach them and ask them questions. She then grows older and leaves. I think she goes to NY where she meets a guy she's been sleeping with. She then gets a call that notifies her that her mother died and need to sign papers and pick up her things from the house. She goes and realizes how controlling her lawyer boyfriend is. Then she encounters her childhood friend and finds out he joined the gang

I am looking for a book I do not remember the details about. I remember half the plot which was a girl gets adopted by a couple who really want to adopt. The girl they adopt was almost run over by the lady in the couple. The girl suffers from amnesia and the woman hypnotises her to help her try remember. Every time she hypnotises her things get a little worse where the girl gets violent under hypnosis. In the end to stop the girl from being very violent the womans friend says to the girl she's got spiders crawling on her because the girl is afraid of spiders. The book is one with two plots happening at the same time and both wrap together in the end. It also turns out that the girl is the woman's real daughter secretly, which the woman put up for adoption when she was sixteen to avoid problems

Hi! I'm looking for the author and title of a book I read (most of) in 1991. I bought it new in California when I was staying with my aunt and we read it together every night of our 2-week tour. I don't remember much about it, I'm afraid. I think it had a sort of "homey" painted cover with curtains, windows and a door, and maybe a pathway or a porch. There was a chapter that had a story about finding a spider, and there might be a spider on the cover. I think, though I'm not sure, that there was a grandmother and granddaughter. I think it was like stories from someone's life, like a sort of autobiography, maybe. I just remember it making us laugh a lot and being great fun to read, and I never got to finish it! Any ideas anyone?

I want to say the war was the Second World War, possibly the Vietnam War. I remember him talking about his rations that they would receive. The last thing i remember, really the only thing i really remember is that they were on night watch and got ambushed. I think his buddy got killed during that ambush as well. I know i did not really leave you with much but it is worth a shot.

Hello everybody, I am searching for a book I read about 6 years ago. It is about a young man who is 17-19 and is going to enter college soon. He might be going to Harvard, but it definitely was a prestigious university. The spring before classes begin, he becomes sick (maybe cancer) and dies before the fall of classes. I believe the book talks about his experiences, but I specifically remember the doctor helping him was trying to find the best meals for his health because energy could not be wasted on breaking down the food. I remember loving the book although I cannot remember why; I really want to read it again and experience it once more. If this rings a bell please leave me a comment and thank you!

Hi! So I'm looking for this book that I read in elementary school, even though it's an YA novel. It was about a girl named Sam, and she lived with her quirky mother, and I think her dad passed away a long time ago. So basically one day Sam gets home from school and her mother has packed her bags and tell Sam that they are going to her father's parents house(so her grandparents). One part I really remember is when her mother tells Sam to bring her textbooks, even though the school owned them? before they leave Sam visits her father grave, and she talks to him. Later when they get to her grandparents Sam forms special bond with the Grandfather, and maybe has a romantic interest with a guy that works on the farm. I've been looking for this book for years. I'm pretty sure this book was from the late 80's or 90's. The cover is a pretty girl with long brown hair leaning on a old car. it may have a caption that says "all Sam wanted was a friend". Please please help! Thank you

This is a repost of a title I asked about in 2011 that never generated a response; I'm still hoping to read this again someday: I'm trying to identify the author/title of a book I read probably in the '70s when it was originally published. The book is a series of fictional vignettes in which unrelated scenarios address a problem facing society and offer a solution. The solutions, while appropriate to the problem or offense, would not have been acceptable to society as a whole. As I recall, the opening scenario involves alcoholism and drunk driving; the proposed solution is a car equipped to either blow up or shoot the driver when the ignition is turned on if the car senses the driver is intoxicated. Successive vignettes escalate either the number of offenders involved or the seriousness of the situations. I have hazy recollections of storylines involving a rogue military unit or commander, biological warfare, and perhaps a nuclear confrontation as the final scenario, but I don't recall any of the proposed solutions. Any help is appreciated.

The girl used to be a dancer but she stopped dancing after she moved except in this small field that she found during jogging, which she goes to often to dance alone. She meets a boy who lived there his whole life and is on the wealthy side. They start to date and they fall in love and go to prom together. There was supposed to be a second book for this series but I'm not sure if it was released yet. I remember that the author was a woman.

I started reading historical war fiction novel in the early 1980’s but stop reading it because it was upsetting. The front cover of the book had red flowers in a field and I am sure it was a male author. I think the story had 4 main characters, 2 soldiers which were in the trenches, a French lady which was having an affair with a British soldier or major and a mother or girl friend of one of soldiers which were in the trenches. For the life of me I cannot remember the title but I am sure it either had Somme or Flanders and something mystical/spooky in the title. I would love to be able to buy this book again and finally finish it. Hope someone out there can help

A book I read when I was about nine or ten years old keeps nagging at me... I remember many of the details but not the title or the writer, which of course makes a search difficult, and since the book didn't really interest me as much as it does many years later, I read through it and moved on. Some of the vivid images I still have from the book make me think that I may have been wrong. The novel came out through Scholastic Books, one of many, which seems to be another reason why I read it and more-or-less tossed it aside without remembering the title, or writer... but on to the details. The book begins with a long section of a young boy leaving an orphanage and headed to a foster home. The ride is described at length, the "green tinted" window of the car, a description of the man driving a somking strong cigarettes, and so on. Later, the boy, afetr arriving at his foster home, joins a rock band and begins to have some local success. All this is told in quite a bit of detail, and the setting is dreary mid-1960s England. Does this ring any bells, anyone?

Hi all, I am looking for this book I have read and it haunting me to find it but I have no name or author only details from the book. It is a werewolf book. Her mother dies while running wild, killed by a human. Her mother appears to her in dreams. She ends up mating with her fathers bodyguard during this process another werewolf tries to mate with her when they went away. Only werewolf can conceive when they are ready and when she mates with her bodyguard she becomes pregnant with twins. On the other hand her dad ends up finding love of her own with a werewolf woman who has kids and he knows this by seeing the stretch marks on her tummy. This one was not used to shifting on her own and when she does she is beautiful. That's all I remember. All ideas are welcome and thank you in advance for your response.

The son is a few years older and they fall for each other but neither think the other is interested. By his fathers wish, they get married and he leaves her with his father to go do business for a few years. He comes back after his father dies and in the will they must stay in the home together for a year to get the inheritance. The step mother convinces her boyfriend (unknowingly to the young woman and her husband) to come and try to break up the couple so she can marry the husband and take his money! HELP

Hi, I've been looking for this book for years now. It's about a girl I think she is 14-16 years old. it takes place back when horses and carriages were still being used. She's an orphan and the ancient preacher wants to make her marry him. She runs away to a small town where she works as a teacher. I know that someone gives birth in the school house and a kid got bit by a poisonous snake and died. I can't remember the name of the book for the life of me and honestly I'm starting to believe I've made it all up lol. If anyone could help me that would be AMAZING. Please let me know!!

Hi, I am hoping to find the name of a book I used to read at a baby sitter's home; a lady and her daughter in South Australia. It was mainly illustrations, beautifully done with many colour plates. I particularly remember two of the illustrations; One was,"Bella the Witch," ..I think stirring something in a cauldron. She was to me a formidable figure dressed mainly in black with a black and here I may be stretching it, white lace trimmed high hat?? The other illustration was of spiders weaving cloth in a fairy market, on a tree trunk, I think, with a caption like," Spiders spin/ning cloth for the fairies." If this rings a bell to anyone, please let me know, thank you.

I am trying to find a book that I read in fourth grade. It was a library book at Hermann Raster Elementary School. I am so fond of that book...I almost didn't return it to the library I loved it so much. Its funny that I put into my mind some info of this book for later in hope I will buy this book. I remember its 40 pages, copyright either 1946 or 1948...have looked through sites using 1940's. This book is about a puppy/dog. He jumps into a basket left on a front porch-doorstep...in hope the people will love him and keep him. I remember a lady being mean to him. The color illustrations were beautiful---antiquish soft colors. I do not remember the publishing company nor the illustrator. And this is not about the book called LADY. I am positive. Please help, anybody. Laura

I'm looking for a novel about a revolutionary war spy. Here is all I remember: Washington(?) arranges for a spy to pose as a man servant to this young Philadelphia woman. Samantha (not her real name) meets Jonathan (his real name, I think) outside of Philadelphia and they spend the night in a tavern posing as man and wife to the innkeeper, much to her annoyance (she initially dislikes Jon). The next day they ride into town. Jonathan notes how many of the Philadelphians are living high off the hog while the Continental army barely has enough food and clothing to survive. The critical point is reached when they attend a masquerade ball using tickets that were discarded by the printer. What they didn’t know was that the British had a list of how many tickets` were given out and what costumes the `attendees would be wearing. Jonathan and Samantha are discovered and have to flee.

Hi DT! I haven't read this book, so I'm not 100%, but I believe you are referring to "The Cement Garden" by Ian McEwan. It was written around 1978 and I'm fairly sure McEwan is English, not American. The plot is also as/similar to what you described. Here's the Wikipedia page, its the best I could find dealing with a book description: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Cement_Garden. Good luck!

I gave as much detail in my initial email as possible. Dr. Grea analysed my complex situation very carefully and responded quickly and honestly with various suggestions. I chose to go with his recommendation of a permanent solution and haven’t looked back. He gave me timings and a clear understanding of what I should expect from the spell. I was advised that it would take up to three days in my case before I started to see any change. However two days after the casting, my ex approached me and we talked through all our past problems. He is now in a stage of terrible confusion due to the feelings he still has for me.He broke off the engagement with the other woman he was with and now we are happy together because of the spell casted by Re_unifyexlove@outlook.com also visit his website page via: http://reunifyexlove.webs.com.

I am looking for a book I read in the late 1960s about a group of children--five, I think--who had a very sick mother. When the mother died they buried her body in the back yard and pretended that she was still alive so they would not be split up or sent to an orphanage. I think the story took place in London and that the book was English, not American.

I am searching for a book that I read almost 20 years ago. I was a juvenile fiction book in a school library. The book was about a young woman whose grandmother told her stories about being saved by a prince, I think, when she was young. When the grandmother dies, the young woman finds a box with the name of a place in Europe that she has never heard. She decides to travel there to learn more about her grandmother. In the end she discovers that the story is, in reality, the account of an escape from a Nazi concentration camp with the help of a guard or something. I loved the book but do not know the author or title. It was lost from the library and no one could even remember it by the time I inquired several years later.

The book I am searching for I have seen mentioned TWICE since 2011 but no answers were given. I first read the book in the 90s though I believe its from the 70-80s. It was a hardcover. There are 2 sisters, Sissy and Charlotte, raised in a smallish town with religious parents (I believe the father was a minister). Charlotte is the older sister and moved away years earlier. Sissy then leaves for college, and meets up and falls in love with a med student. Sissy discovers that charlotte is a high priced prostitute and is involved with drugs. Towards the end of the book, Charlotte is found stabbed to death in the parking lot. I would greatly appreciate any help in finding this books. Please email me at a.tidyman@hotmail.com

In the 1980's, I was a member of the Science Fiction Book Club. They sold a book called SANCTUARY. It was actually a book of connected short stories, all set in a town called Sanctuary. One of the main characters was named Shadowspawn. I would really like to track it down.

The book I'm tracking down was a book about a town that was over run with monsters. A group of kids set across town to battle and find these monsters. The monsters were very well detailed and super unique. Probably not a popular book but it's worth a shot. It was about a few levels ahead of the Goosebumps books but felt similar.

It's about a woman who works in an office building and I believe she had a stalker who then ends up attacking her in the stairwell and lands her in the hospital. There was supposed to be a body guard but he for some reason couldn't save her at first. If anyone has a clue let me know! Thanks

I'm not sure which year it was published but probably sometime in 2000s the story starts off with a girl intervieweing her grandmother for a school journal . The grandmother used to be married to a coal miner in the 1920s or 1930s some time during the depression). The lady cheats on her coal mining husband and becomes pregnant with another man. Her husband ends up helping to raise the baby. Then later she finds out that her father also isn't her real father because her mother also cheated. I know I'm all over the place but I only remember certain parts and for some reason I think it was set in New Zealand or Australia . It was definitely set in the time of a big union worker's strike.

It was about a woman that just lost her husband and she was very pregnant. She went to her husband's family and his brother and her had a real antagonistic relationship. I don't remember why. Anyway, as usual, they began to fall in love. I think there was an iron gate on the cover of the book. Oh, and she may have had red hair. I don't quite remember. This has been driving me crazy.

She didn't want to be with anyone but he pursued her anyway. It ended they got together and ended up having a child.

Hi, I've been looking for this book for awhile. This girl is a doctor and she's like super smart and she got into medical school at a really young age. I remember at the beginning she's just finishing her shift, when she goes for a run around the hospital, and there's been a shooting and a police officer(ATF?) has been shot and the guys partner thinks she's a soccer player from the park. There was a game going on. Then the ambulance guy looks up and sees her, the guys partner doesn't know she's a doctor, and tells him to let her pass. She starts dating the officer that wouldn't let her pass. Later on in the book, she has this flashback to when her father and her(dads a mathematician?) were at the college where he works and there was this other mathematician there and he asked his students what the sum of the numbers 1-100 equaled. No one knew the answer but she raised her hand and gave the correct answer. She was like 9 or something . The mathematician asked her to come up and show the students how she solved it. Also, (not the flashback) later this guy from her past is trying to kill her or hurt her and she goes to a party at her parents house and he shows up and tries to hurt her. The police officer guy/boyfriend saves her. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you :)

There were many funny stories of the dad and daughter who went flying with his friends and staying with questionable characters. Does anyone know the name of this book? Thanks, Kathy

I can't remember the author's name. I hope someone can help me. I really enjoyed the series and was looking forward to more, but it's been quite a while since I read it. I hope someone can help!

Hi everybody, any help with locating this book would be greatly appreciated. I began reading it a few years back and never finished it and I'm desperate to find it again. No idea on the author. Ahh old 14th century era (lotr) although not sure there was magic in it.. Could have been. Main character was a younger lad I swear his name is Teal.. In fact I'm positive. He was abandoned me thinks.. And the bar owner took him in and trained him in the bar to work there. His room was on the highest floor in like the attic section of the Inn/tavern. He sees some wanders/adventures enter the town and they come into the bar that night and he his impressed with there appearance and envious of there lifestyle and there horses hahaha I remember that.. Their horses were loaded with gear and looked tired. The bar gets attacked, everyone flees... the bar owner takes Teal and they escape in a carriage and the wanders are assisting them in the escape by firing arrows out the back of the carriage. The bar owner (teals father figure) gets hit by a enemy arrow and passes away during the escape. Teal camps with the wanders and they pass him a sword or something and he has a natural ability to use it. - I also believe there could possibly be some suspicion that Teal was a lost prince. Any help would be ridiculously appreciated.

This probably won't work, but I'm desperate to find this book. I read it sometime between 2001 and 2006 - I think it had been published fairly recently - and haven't been able to get it out of my head since. It was a very odd and disturbing book, and my cover had a blurry picture of a girl with an indistinct face, which was tinted green. It depicted the life of a teenage boy (often an unsympathetic character) whose little sister had gone missing. The suspicion was that she had drowned while he was meant to be looking after her, but there was no evidence of this. He had been distracted by a beautiful woman nearby when she went missing. In the book, he meets this woman again and begins to discover some very messy criminal activities, in some way involving people-smuggling - at the climax of the book he discovers a ship (?) full of people. On this ship is a girl who looks just like his sister, but turns out not to be - he realises this partly because he has a vague sense of his sister's ghost (but this is depicted realistically, seeming more like an apparition of his mind than a real ghost). I think at some point in the book he also discovers some information from a male relative/in-law, who works as a policeman (?). Would be incredibly grateful if anyone else can remember this book, I've been wondering about it for years. I think I was 12 when I read it but it was likely aimed more at 15-18 year olds.

I'm looking for a book that I read years ago. I can't remember if it's YA or SciFi/Fantasy. The only thing I can remember is it's part of a three book series. The story is about a young woman that can shapeshift but it's considered a horrible thing to do. Something terrible happens to her family but she escapes. She meets up with an apprentice magician(sorcerer/wizard) and they end up traveling together on a big ship. I also remember that her love interest is from a sort of rival family to her family and his family has shifters too. I keep wanting to think her name started with a K or C but I could be completely mistaken. Oh and the author is a woman.

I'm looking for a book (haven't found it anywhere on the internet), and it's teenage romance, I think, but not Harlequin? The main character is I believe Kathy? Price, and she's moving to a new town from being in prep school, and she's made fun of because of her last name and because of the blazer she's wearing. She bumps into a guy named Kevin who handcrafts silver jewelry and she becomes friends with her neighbour or a girl on her street named Marcie, whose mother sews her outfits. Her antagonist uses a nailfile or nail clippers to destroy the back of her dress at some sort of event, and the antagonist is later seen wearing a necklace of silver leaves, which her parents had Kevin make, and Kevin gifts her with a ring of overlapping silver leaves. I think the words "new girl" are in the title somewhere but I don't remember. Help much appreciated!!

Please help me!!! I read this book a couple of years ago, and i remember liking it but i can't remember the title or author. It was about this girl, her name might have been Zoey, who had to move back to her Mom's hometown because of financial reasons and her parents got divorced or something like that. Either her or her mom (i think her mom) ends up falling in love with one of the people who does like construction on their house. Also in their attic, she finds pictures of her grandma's old garden. At the beginning of the book she doesn't like her new country home and wants to go back to her old home in the city, but by the end she is more comfortable. the cover is a girl in a brown shirt sitting on a swing looking out over a meadow.

There is a book that I have been trying to remember for years. It was either three or four novellas in one, but at least two of the stories were connected. The main character's name was Nathan or Nathaniel, and he finds a woman in a cabin. This Nathan is an officer in the military, and the setting is some place out west around the time of General Custer and his debacle. He is embittered by his service in the military, and angry with God. He and an older woman help to nurse the woman back to health, and she and this other guy who serves under Nathan end up getting married. The second book has to do with a girl named Caroline or Charlotte who had a crush on Nathan, but she ended up marrying some other officer who beat her. He dies, and she has a son. Basically, she's really nervous and manages to get Nathan to fall for her this time without trying. The end.

I had read a book in the early 70's about a man who began on earth without use of his legs. He eventually dies and goes to "heaven" and he talks of everything he sees there, The ability to do better and get to different levels and the people he had met on earth. He also gains the use of his legs and is amazed at being able to run again. The faster he runs, the faster he can run eventually getting to faster than speed of light. Two of the people he met on earth were bad "Bikers" and he talks to them in heaven and (I think) they still wanted to be mean and went back to earth as bad people. He would go back during different times. I really would like to read this book again, but don't remember much of it.

I'm sure this is a long shot but I've been looking for this book for years and it bothers me that I can't remember the name. It was one of those cheap, grocery store horror novels they have by the checkout counter. It was a two part series I think. Maybe three. I seem to recall it being set in a small town in Pennsylvania or maybe Maine, and possibly a town with a paper mill or some large factory that had an accident and poisoned the water or air or some kind of large scale catastrophe. There's a strange young woman that doesn't speak (I think) that lives in town that the residents seem to think is a witch and somehow to blame for all the bad things that happen there. The one scene I recall clearly is a few of the characters going through her apartment and finding a lot of empty soup cans like she had just been eating condensed soup out of the can without cooking it. She possibly worked as a prostitute to support herself. I can't remember much about it other than that but I'd love to know the name so I could reread it. I first read it probably in the early 2000's if that helps at all.

Hello, all, I recently remembered bits and pieces of a book I read back in the 1990s. My mom and sisters don't remember any such book, and my online searches have turned up nothing: There was a young man who was in a car accident and ended up in a coma. While in the coma, he dreamed about a parallel world containing a cute rabbit who didn't want to be thought of as cute. The young man was sent on a mission of some sort. I think the rabbit was a king in the parallel world. Occasionally, the young man would snap out of his coma long enough to mumble a few cryptic words, and then slip back down into it. The nurse and doctor became interested in what was going on beneath the surface. They eventually got involved in the young man's parallel world. It was a young adult paperback fiction book. Thank you, if anyone can help me remember the title or author!

I'm looking for a book I read back in the mid 2000s. It had a blue cover with a girl looking out at a shore. It was about her finding the remains of those who died in a shipwreck, and then meeting a ghost named Tom. ("I'm not a tomboy. I'm Tom's girl.") She had been sent out there to stay with her grandmother for the summer because her parents were dealing with the death of her newborn sister. (Her mother's work was naming crayons.)She was a track star (her coach had noticed the benefits of her flat feet) and spent most of her time running during the summer. Tom had a younger brother (Joshua?) whom had contacted the girl, I think, in order to get some sort of closure with their deaths. I had thought the book was called The Gravekeeper by Sharon Stewart but apparently nothing of the sort exists.

At first they don't believe it's him but get closer to confirm that it's him and indeed it is. She then doesn't know whether to tell her sister (who is pregnant with her cheating boyfriend's baby). She finally does and the sister breaks it off with the cheating boyfriend. I don't remember too much of the rest of the book, but it dealt with that young girl growing up.

Hello, I have looked for a book I read in the 80's... i think... it started out with an older mann trying to find a young child that displayed a talent for teleportation, and the children when found were tested either bronze, silver or gold. The person who finds a child then tutors them and is paid according to the child ratings in advance, in case the child when they reached puberty got mad and teleported them into the sun or something like that. This was a multiple book series... i think... and the young man was a gold and did things with teleportation that no one had ever done. This book was science fiction and not set on earth... i think... I know this is EXTREMELY vague, but it is all I can remember at this time. Has anyone read this book? I do not remember the author or title. Thanks in advance for any help with this.

He is at the stage called "rumspringa" in which an Amish young adult can go experience "the world" and then decide if he wants to commit to being Amish for the rest of his life. It is at this time that he falls in love with this non-Amish girl. He also had a little sister who gets tragically hit by a car and dies when the girlfriend is with her.

I'm looking for a book I started a few years ago. It was about these teens who went to shoot a film in a supposedly haunted mansion that they didn't think was haunted until they figured out that the person who invited them to the mansion may be the killer but they have no idea who the person who invited them was and they suspect that someone among them maybe be the killer. That's as far as I got. I don't remember the name or author but I do remember on the cover of the book there was a masquerade ball mask covered in blood (not fifty shades of grey) I found it once but then I lost it and I remember when I found it there was a critique saying it was supposed to be based off of Shakespeare's a midsummer's night dream although it was the complete opposite. Please help me find this book. I saw it in Walmart when I first found it but I doubt it's there now. I'm not sure. I just need to know the title of the book.

Hi Heather, the book about the woman who runs a bakery and is run over while riding a bike with the supernatural hero is most likely 'Night Owl' by Emma Holly, It is a short story published in the 'Hot Blooded' Anthology.

I'm looking for a book I read in the mid 80s, but I don't remember when it was actually published. I believe it had a primarily black and white cover but I'm not sure. I also don't remember the title or the author. It was about a man who missed the Rapture and had to go through the Tribulation. He regretted not going to church when his wife asked him to, as she was taken up. I am pretty sure he has a daughter he has to find and the book details their underground existence, i.e. difficulty finding food, etc. It talks about the Chinese government forcing abortions on women who have too many children I think. It talks about the anti-Christ rising, the return of Christ,the White Throne Judgement and the Thousand Year Reign in the last chapters of the book. It is fiction based on Biblical prophecy. It is not part of the Left Behind series, it was quite a few years before those books came out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking for a book and I vaguely remember it being called "Terrestrial saga" but after searching apparently not. The main character is a boy that i think gets abducted from a desert and winds up on another planet somewhere in a jungle and these monkey creatures help him eat these weird fruit things. And then he gets taken in by this village and starts to slowly learn their language. I remember the cover being orange-ish?

She goes to the library to borrow the next book in a series she loves, but becomes upset when she realizes it's already been signed out by someone else. This keeps happening, and she spends much of the book trying to find out who the other person is.

These 2 girls decide to trade places, so one has to cut off her long thick braid. The other one has a little sister, and the sister knows they have traded, but no one ever listens to her. The girl and the little sister end up living with an old lady who is very strict about listening to the wireless every night. I don't remember much more, and I wonder what ever happened after the war ended.

looking for a book where the main character was a jew and slept with her pet pig and she lived with her family, her mother dyed wool and made yarn and sold them, i can't remember what her father did but her grandfather was a doctor and i also can't remember what her grandmother did. her brother was in a different place studying to be a paster. the book is based around the holocaust. her best friend and her liked the same boy and the boy liked the main character back, he told her that and may have kissed her and her best friend saw so she told the nazis that her family was jewish because she was jealous, her grandfather was put on trial, because he wouldn't eat pig they broke his jaw in court, her father, brother and grandfather were burned to death downtown of their hometown and her mother may or may not have been as well. her grandmother and her ran and hid, they went from place to place but eventually they lived in the forest and the boy found them and would bring them food and water, i believe he ended up living with them.

This was a serial in a magazine -- Good Housekeeping I believe -- in the early to mid 70s. I remember the plot. It was about a young Jewish doctor, Joshua, and his non-Jewish wife, Laura, who had moved to a small town to set up his practice. His mother did not approve of his marriage, and is trying to insinuate a old friend/flame, Esther Lee Berman into his life again. Laura is kidnapped by an escaped murderer, and Josh begins to realize how much she means to him.

This is a weird one. Searching for a book that was purchased through an ad in the back of a magazine in the 1990's. Magazine may have been Popular Mechanics. The book was advertised as secret or ancient knowledge and claimed to have been banned at one point. It also claimed that through its study you could develop mind control or something like that. I received it and read some of it but lost it. It was black, very thick and large similar to a phone book. It also had a strange symbol on it. Really strange stuff on the inside. Could have been early NLP? Any help would be appreciated. This has eluded me for decades!

I read a series when I was growing up about a teenage girl who had to help take care of her brothers and sisters. Her dad may have owned a garage and she maybe liked a boy who worked there. They lived in a big house and it was a big family. Seriously, that's all I got, but I do remember loving the series and checking it out all the time from the Agoura California public library. This was the late 70s but the series may well have been older. It's not much, but all ideas appreciated! thanks!

I loved the book, and Mother has gotten rid of many of them from childhood. Saddens me. Any thoughts? It was not a novel, it was a larger flat childrens book, with the paper cover being in black/white, purple and gold......it had the same coloring in the illustrations inside the pages.

This is a huge long shot but I read this series in the early 2000s and I've been trying to find it recently with no success. My memory of it is pretty sketchy, but this is all I remember: - there were at least 3 books in the series - at the start of at least the first book (may have been all of them) there was a poem called "how do I love thee" by Elizabeth Barrett browning "- it is a young adult ghost story - the girl moves in with her grandmother and thinks the house is haunted after she sees a face in the bathroom mirror while taking a bath - she is in love with a young man but I think it's long distance as they write to each other sometimes. If anyone recognises anything please let me know, I can't find anything on it anywhere! Thank you.

hi guys! im looking for a book and this is the best i can remember. i read this in ibooks and cant seem to remember the name of the book or the author. the book is about this woman has lost her kids in a big earthquake that has hit her town. she packs up & leaves with her dog in her car to go look for her son at his school but no luck. So she just starts driving anywhere until her car stops and there is a weird fog that surrounds her that wont let her scream or move and so she passes out and end up waking in the future with dirty clothes from she wakes up with her dog and is startled by a wolf who changes into a girl in front of her eyes. The girl wolf was told by her uncle to stay within miles of the house and not to go any further and upon doing so she finds the woman with her dog. when she tells her uncle what she has found the man takes the woman and her dog in and asks her what her name is & where did she comes from, what happened & how did she get here & what year does she think it is. When she tells him that he sends her to clean up and meanwhile he goes into his study to look her up. he finds her name and her info match but he also finds that she was presumed dead in the earthquake that took place and killed many and she gets upset (i think he even goes and sleeps with her to calm her when shes sleeping.) time goes by and she falls for the man and at one point he tells her that her dog is a good protector and couple times he even changes into his wolf form so he could go out and play with the womans dog as well. At one point people begin to look for her and try to kill her and the man which leads to him taking her to a secluded area where he makes a little secret place including trees for her safety(i think) I'm sorry if i cant give much but that's about it. i hope i can get help from you all. thanks :)

Dear Lookingforever, I think the book you might be looking for is "Ramona the Pest" by Beverly Cleary. That line you quoted sounded so familiar, and I know I've read it before. I haven't read Ramona for about 15 years, so I'm not completely sure, but I think that may be the one. It is about two sisters, and it was published in 1968. I really think that may be the book you're looking for. I hope it is!

Forgive me for sounding like the 'punctuation police', but a line in one of your music reviews needs correction. In your review of 'ISIS & OSIRIS you stated that the suite was inspired by 'Egyptian mythology and African fables'. Well, Egypt was/is also African. It would be better to use terms like Egyptian and sub-saharan African to denote the difference.

Okay so I've been looking for this book I got from the public library. It was a collection of vampire stories. The first one was about this lady who figures out that her neighbor is a vampire and she contacts a demon to help her talk the vampire into changing her because she is so desperate to lose weight. There's another story in it that I think was called "The Touch" which was about a vampire who ran a massage parlor and fed through sex but as she got older it wasn't enough and she started killing them. But then she meets this guy who she changes and they live happily ever after. I haven't seen it on subsequent trips to the library but I'm curious as to what this book is called because I want to read it again.

i'm looking a children's book about an older and a younger sister learning to get along. it ended with something like "you're a wet pest, you're my sister pest, you're the best pest there is." publication date was probably early/mid 90's, unless it already wasn't new at the time! Thanks for reading this!

I'm looking for a book I read a couple years ago. I don't remember the author or the title, but I do remember that it was in a series and it wasn't the first or the last book. From what I remember, it was about a girl who lives with her boyfriend in New York. She works at her friends boyfriends dad's law firm as a secretary (i think). At the law place she meets a girl who marrying someone who is really famous, and she's not. Anyway, she has to wear a really ugly dress because of family tradition, but really, he future mother-in-law just wants to embarrass her. So the main character specializes in dress making or fixing (she's working at a bridal dress shop, but with no pay, because that's her passion) and she wants to help the girl. A lot of stuff happens, like she makes the dress look really nice but she gets fired from the law place because something about finding the client there. She demands a full-time job at the bridal store and the apartment on top of it, because she broke up with her boyfriend, i think she broke up with him because she felt like he was too good for her, and I think she wanted something serious. Also, her best friend ends up being into women and breaks up with her boyfriend. So the main character gets the full time job and the apartment and she also gets invited to the wedding of the lady she fixed the dress for. She attends the wedding and so does her best friends ex, who tells her that if he saw her first, rather than his ex, he would have chose her. So there's a lot of drinking that night and she wakes up with a hangover in bed beside her best friends ex and someones knocking on the door downstairs. It's her (ex) boyfriend proposing and the book ends like that. I guess I do remember a lot, but not the name. Any help would be appreciated.

Sidney Vent: I've been looking for that book for ages too! I found the book bound as a trilogy in a used bookstore years ago, and I absolutely devoured all three books. Your question is the closest I've come to finding it in years, and you remembered just enough of the book to help me locate it. The book is Prospero's Children by Jan Siegel (book one of The Way of the Witch trilogy of which book two is titled The Dragon Charmer and book three is titled The Witch Queen). I'm ordering these books now and cannot wait to read them again. :)!

Good evening, My quest is for either a book or a digest of some nature. This came out about 1975-76 time frame. This book or digest actually had short stories in comic-book form but they weren't comics per se. Two of the stories I do remember went like this and apparently these stories were based on some type of true events. The first story involved a guy who was caught in a terrible storm. He found refuge in a dilapidated castle. It was there that he met a lady who stated that this was her home. He extended his stay and they fell in love. Her only condition was that he may never see her either in the daylight or in any sort of light (don't remember which). They had two kids together. One day, he broke that promise and saw her for what she was. Some sort of monster (kind of a cross between a wolf or bear) that walked upright. Needless to say, she banished him due to his mistake and his kids also were these creatures. The other story involves a guy who basically wants to get rid of his wife (for whatever reason). So he takes her into the woods. Of course, he gets out of there and abandons her leaving her to the wolves who do kill her. After a period of time, the guy is looking out into the woods from his balcony when he sees the ghost of his wife floating toward him. Not believing what he sees, he leaves his house to follow said ghost. She continues to float about 15-20 feet off the ground and leads him into the woods. The last scene is of him getting attacked by wolves (probably the same ones that attacked her). In other words, she got her revenge by getting him ambushed. That's the only stories I remember. I do recall it was a good read and I guess being in a comic-digest format made it even better. Anyway, thank you to whomever can point me in the right direction.

Hello! I'm looking for a book about a girl who meets a guy online, and then once they finally meet in person, he is not what he seemed to once be. He was meant to have wonderful blonde hair and sparkly blue eyes, but when they went on a date at the beach, she discovered that he was very strange - he had crooked yellow teeth, and he ended up drugging her on their date and took photos of her while she was unconcious. He had told her that he had a very good job, but however, she discovered that he was actually just a janitor at a grimmy school, and she found out that he was doing the same thing that he was to her, to many other girls. That's about as much as i can remember, but i would truly appreciate it if someone could help identify this book!!

A book with the word "blue" in the title--like, "A _______ Blue". Switched back and forth between a modern day story of a writer, and a woman accused of witchcraft, who is an ancestor of the modern woman.

I am looking for a book I read about 9 years ago (I would have been 10). Here are some details I remember: It s about a boy who keeps having a dream about a clearing in some forest or woodland area, and there is a song or rhyme being chanted. In school he has annoyed some bully. A new girl comes to his school and gets everyone on the yard to play a game, and she chants a similar rhyme, so he asks her about it. I never managed to finish the book, so I can t give any more details sadly, but if anyone can help it would be much appreciated.

I am looking for a story I read online about a year ago. It I a beautifully colored manga. The story is set in the future. It is about some people who make a robot (A.I) and how he becomes friends with a mermaid who ended up in his city. The art is so amazing but I can't find the website anywhere.

I'm looking for a book I read back in high school or so where there's a girl who's part of this group that seeks and captures trolls for info and kills them. She can kick ass and one of the trolls she captures refuses to answer her questions and he's a smart ass. Eventually they fall in love and towards the end he almost dies when he turns into stone in the sunlight. That's about all I remember but if it sounds familiar to you please let me know. I want to reread this book!

@booklover511 That book is Hopeless by Colleen Hoover. Her name was Sky and the guy she meets (her neighbor) is Dean. If I remember right, he has a tattoo that she finds that says "Hopeless" and she later finds out that her name actually used to be Hope.

I am looking for a young adult book that I read a few years ago. It was about a girl (I can't remember her name) who was very sheltered and not even permitted a cell phone. She finally convinced her aunt to allow her to attend public school when she meets a boy who seems very familiar. I think they met the first time while running. The two of them have a connection and it is later realized that they used to be neighbors. When the girl was very young she
