Three time Newbery honor author Nancy Farmer's epic fantasy, The Sea of Trolls, is gigantic in every way. There are big Vikings and bigger trolls. There are big themes--hope, despair, life and death. At a substantial 450+ pages, the sheer size of this hefty tome is impressive. But, like all of Farmer's fine work, the large scale has room for enormous quantities of heart and humor. At the center of this massive adventure is a small Saxon boy named Jack, who's never been much good at anything until the Bard of his medieval village makes him an apprentice. Then, just as Jack is learning to tap into and control his power, he is kidnapped (along with his little sister, Lucy) and taken to the court of King Ivar the Boneless and his half troll queen Frith. When one of Jack's amateur spells causes the evil queen's beautiful hair to fall out, he is forced to undertake a dangerous quest across the Sea of Trolls to make things right, or suffer the consequences--the sacrifice of his beloved sister to Frith's patron goddess, Freya. Along the way Jack faces everything from giant golden troll-bears to man-eating spiders, yet each frightening encounter brings wisdom and understanding to the budding young Bard. No quester who enters these pages with Jack will go away unsatisfied. Farmer's skillful melding of history, mythology, and humor, is reminiscent of both Tamora Pierce and Terry Pratchett's medieval fantasies, and will no doubt be HUGELY enjoyed by fantasy readers of all ages. --Jennifer Hubert ...

Book Description

Suze is a mediator -- a liaison between the living and the dead. In other words, she sees dead people. And they won't leave her alone until she helps them resolve their unfinished business with the living. But Jesse, the hot ghost haunting her bedroom, doesn't seem to need her help. Which is a relief, because Suze has just moved to sunny California and plans to start fresh, with trips to the mall instead of the cemetery, and surfing instead of spectral visitations.

But the very first day at her new school, Suze realizes it's not that easy. There's a ghost with revenge on her mind ... and Suze happens to be in the way.

Book Description

Everything is going great for Suze. Her new life in California is a whirlwind of parties and excellent hair days. Tad Beaumont, the hottest boy in town, has even asked Suze out on her very first date. Suze is so excited that she's willing to ignore her misgivings about Tad... particularly the fact that he's not Jesse, whose ghostly status--not to mention apparent disinterest in her--make him unattainable.

What Suze can’t ignore, however, is the ghost of a murdered woman whose death seems directly connected to dark secrets hidden in none other than Tad Beaumont's past.

Imogene Yeck, former gang member and current fairy butt-kicker, is the cool "blue girl" at the center of Charles de Lint'slatest urban fantasy novel. Seventeen-year-old Imogene jumps at the chance to lose her bad girl reputation when her family moves to a new town. She purposely lays low at Redding High, only making friends with Maxine, a shy, studious girl who is Imogene's opposite in every way. Despite a few run-ins with the ruling football jock and his cheerleader girlfriend, Imogene keeps her temper in check and even lends some of her bravado to Maxine, who begins to come out of her straight-A shell. Things are going well for the new friends--until the day Imogene meets Adrian, the benign ghost of a boy who died in the school's parking lot. Adrian and Imogene's unusual connection attracts the unwelcome attention of Redding High's resident Little People, or fairies. Affronted by streetwise Imogene's lack of belief in them, the fairies set into motion a malevolent prank that will not only turn Imogene completely blue from head to toe, but pit her, Adrian and Maxine against some of the most frightening beings of the Otherworld--the soul-sucking Anamithims. de Lint's Blue Girl reads like a really well-executed episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer--smart and thought provoking, without taking itself too seriously. Although the action builds slowly, the final scene, involving a bucket of blue paint, a knife fight, and green monster blood, is absolutely worth it. Buffy fans who enjoy meeting Imogene and Co. will also want to check out Holly Black's dark fairy tale, Tithe, and Nina Kiriki Hoffman's modern ghost story, A Stir of Bones --Jennifer Hubert ...

Book Description

Can there be a more terrifying and seductive tale than this? The story of the notorious vampire Count Dracula, lord of the undead, who rises from his coffin at night to suck the blood of the living is, undoubtedly, the stuff of nightmares.

Narrated from several different viewpoints, Dracula is a complex story that many know but few have actually read.Jan Needle's newly edited version makes the gripping events accessible to the twenty-first century reader without losing the incomparably chilling atmosphere of Bram Stoker's original novel - brilliantly captured in the dramatic illustrations of award-winning artist Gary Blythe.

Blue is for nightmare
By Laurie Faria Stolarz
S. Shin
Period 3

This book is about teens at boarding girls. A girl named Stacey has physic powers; she can see things that may happen in the future. Now she sees her best friend Drea in her nightmare being stalked by a psycho stalker. Drea is starting to get weird e mails and freaky phone calls. This really scares her now things get even worse! Someone is leaving Drea death lilies like Stacey saw in her dreams. Then however, her dreams get all twisted, another girl at their school gets brutally murder. There are no witness and nobody can give and perfectly innocent alibi. ...I loved this book because it had everything that a teenager wants to find in a book. They have, romance, mysteries, killing, violence and many more! Loved this book so much that can't explain it. You really have to read this book to find out what happens!
I didn't like this book because the beginning started off to slowly. It took me at least seven chapters to get on with the story. If it didn't start really soon I would have dropped the book and never read it again. However, luckily I didn't because I would have missed out a lot of things
I like this book because it would be a book that everybody would be hoping to read. I was always wondering if there would be a book with romance, violence, murder, mystery, and curiosity. By reading this book, I finally found the one that I would be able to read over and over again.

5-0 out of 5 stars Blue is for Nightmares
This was a very great book. I found it while walking around a book store. I had no clue of this books existence, when i picked it up and scanned the book i thought "ohh what the heck, I'll give it a try" well that turned right around with the first chapter of the book. I was transfixed in the pages, being unable to put it down and reading it all night. Blue is for Nightmares was one of the best books I have read in a long time. I showed this book to a friend of mine who is Wiccan and she loved the story and the fact that I and other people (Laurie Faria Stolarz) could find a more spiritual meaning to this religion and less of a broomstick, love spell impression. It was just a great book because it has a mix of everything in it, from teen drama and love stroies, to a mystery, and in someways horror. Its just in all a GREAT book and Stolarz is a great author and I cant wait to see what she comes up with next!

5-0 out of 5 stars Intriguing book
I loved this book, mostly because of it's wicca and mystery. Every page reveals something to solve, inviting my eyes to read more. Descriptions in my opinion make it almost seem as though your living in her mind, hearing and feeling every thought. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good riddle, with a slight twist of magick.

5-0 out of 5 stars Blue is for Nightmares
This book is amazing and I couldn't put it down! Anyone who is a fantasy fan will love this novel. It's about a girl named Stacey who recieves these dreams about her friend Drea's murder, they turn out to be preminitions instead. Facing danger of being killed herself she is bound and determined to save Drea. Whether she saves her or not you have to read the book to find out!

4-0 out of 5 stars A Nice Suspenseful Mystery
16-year-old Stacy has a remarkable gift, the ability to concoct spells, foresee the future through her dreams, and interpret card readings and omens. If only she could explain the recurring nightmares that have been disturbing her slumber for the past year, causing her to wet the bed. If that's not bad enough, Stacy resides in a coed boarding school where she dorms with her best friend, Drea who knows nothing of her secret. That's the predicament Stacy finds herself in in Laurie Faria Stolarz's Blue Is For Nightmares.
The nightmares are always the same; Somehow Stacy finds herself in the woods following a faint cry in the distance. With each step, the crying becomes louder and before long, she recognizes that the sound is coming from Drea. When Stacy starts running towards the whimpering, the displeasing sensation of having to pee overcomes her. She hobbles as best she can , trying to get through to Drea when she walks into a seemingly bottomless pit of muck. She pulls her foot out of the mud but ends up losing her sneaker in the process. Somewhere in the darkness, a male voice whispers her name. With Drea screaming her name and the male voice taunting her, Stacy goes ballistic and grabs a massive rock for defense. Suddenly out of nowhere, a man's figure appears before her. He extends his arms to show that he's holding white lilies- the symbol for death. Stacy runs from the figure as fast as her feet can carry her. That's when a shrill wail escapes her throat as a narrow branch stabs into the arch of her bare foot. Now she could no longer hold it in. Stacy awakes, the sheets wringing wet from under her.
Stacy uses spells and magical recipes to help expunge the nightmares, but deep down inside she knows she can't ignore these dreams. The last time she overlooked her dreams 3-years-ago, Maura, the little girl she used to baby-sit, died. Although Drea may be one of the prettiest, most popular girls in school, and the ex-girlfriend of the boy Stacy has been crushing on, Drea is still Stacy's best friends and she wouldn't want anything bad to happen to her. At first, Stacy's premonitions and Drea's situation didn't connect. But when Stacy becomes aware of the secret admirer that has been calling up Drea and Drea had been going along with it, things start to link up. And a card reading only confirmed her nightmares. When Drea finally starts listening to her friends and stops fooling around with this perv, he begins stalking her, and sending her white lilies and weird letters which count down the days till they meet face-to-face. This pretty much freaks out Drea, Stacy, and Amber.
Drea relies on Stacy and Amber to help her expose this psycho, but it's proving to be very difficult because everyone's a suspect even Chad, the hot stud both Stacy and Drea are infatuated with. But a mishap where Drea finds Chad spending the night in her dorm with Stacy, pins the two friends against each other. If things can't get worse, Drea discovers Stacy's secret that she wets the bed and in her anger, Drea reveals it to their friends including Chad. Even though Stacy was hurt by Drea's malicious act, she's still determined to help her. It just seems sad that there had to be a murder of a girl at school before Drea realized how frightened she was and how much she really needed Stacy. But it seems it's too late and Drea finds herself in a position where even Stacy, with her Wicca, can't save her alone.
I found this book suspenseful and riveting. It started out on a slow note, but once the mystery started being worked into the plot, I couldn't put it down. At times I thought I knew for sure who the stalker/killer was but then the book would throw something at you that would make you think otherwise. It's also a prime example of how friendship prevails all without being too sappy. If you enjoy a good mystery with drama, humor, suspense, and teenaged characters, you'll love Blue Is For Nightmares. Althouh it contains some fould language, I'd advise this book to any young adult. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Nice Compilation But Not For Fanatics
Quotable Slayer is a compilation of quotes and memorable dialogue from Buffy Season 1 to Season 7. Its organized into sections such as Buffy On... and Quotable Slayer (about Slayers. Its very well organized and small enough to carry around in your bag where ever you go. The choice of quotes is good. There are a few minor errors. It includes full color photos.

A highlight is the Quotable Intro which is a nice intro to the book. I would recommend this for fans who'd like to remember things about the show, but for die hard fanatics, this book is not a necessity. You'd probably be able to rant of quotes off your mind right now without the book.

Overall, the book is nice but not something that stands out or a necessity for fans at all.

4-0 out of 5 stars Hope they do one for Angel too.
Fun little book that compiles many of the most memorable quotes for all seven seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The book covers a wide range of quotes from the hilarious to the touching. I really enjoyed this book but I do have a few complaints. I noticed an error, they have the Xander/Andrew talking about Anya's death quote labeled as coming from "End of Days" instead of "Chosen." I think there may have been a few more mistakes but I'd have to check on those. Also, The book didn't have my favorite quote which is; "For God's sake, man, she's eighteen. And you have the emotional maturity of a blueberry scone. Just have at it, would you, and stop fluttering about." ~ Giles to Wesley (The Prom) Still, If you are a die hard Buffy fan I highly recommend this book. It's good for quick Buffy fixes on the go.

4-0 out of 5 stars Quote Book For the Buffy Geek
This book is just so much fun. It has some of the best Buffy the Vampire Slayer quotes.
Well organized because it goes by characters and character status. Could have been more detailed by scenes. However, all , and all. Excellent keep sake.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Quotable Slayer-lets hope for The Quotable Vampire soon
Its every fans dream. 200+ pages of the hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking dialogue of one of the best shows television has ever given us.

With sections including: The Quotable Slayer, The Quotable Watcher, The Quotable Scoobies, The Quotable Other People, and Buffy on..., and 8 pages of Color Photos, you really couldnt expect more, unless of course it was a script book.

Of course it wont have all of your favorites, because that is impossible with all of the great quips on the show, but Ostow and Brazenoff do a great job of compiling this essential quote book.

I love the cover which includes Buffy's gravestone "She Saved the World A Lot". I would definitely recommend this book.

Hopefully we get an Angel Supplement soon.

3-0 out of 5 stars Remember that time...? No, me neither.
This is an interesting concept, and it's not bad for the price. I just wish they'd done a better job editing the book before rushing it out. There's a few quotes that are attributed to the wrong episode. That's not so dire, though. They did that in the Watcher's Guides, too. No big deal.

What bothers me is that there are quotes in the book that never made it on air. It seems their only source material was the shooting scripts, instead of actually watching the episodes. I really wasn't ready to see Tara's "Sweetie, I'm a fag." from the 'Dead Things' script be released commercially yet. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A thrilling and well-written new tale of mystery and magic.
Mary Newbury witnessed the burning of her grandmother by her people. Her grandmother, accused of witchcraft, was brutally murdered for a cause -- witches are said to be evil, and Mary fears for her life. She may be killed next in the line of her grandmother. Boarding a voyage to America, she hopes that in the new country she will rebuild her life and find hope. And she does -- befriending a talented girl named Rebekah and even helping an Indian boy in the forest. But she fears that the truth about her past will come out. Can she run away from the
terrifying truth... or face it, even if it will mean her own burning? Witch Child, an amazing new witch story beautifully written by Celia Rees, is the heartwrenching and powerful story of a young girl's travails and journeys in the 1600s. It is an amazing novel that will leave the reader in suspense and moves at a powerful pace. I hope there will be a sequel to this phenomenal young adult novel.

5-0 out of 5 stars Emotional telling of a "Witch"
The 1600's are a time of lies and fear. For Mary Newbury it is a time of sadness. Unable to do anything, she watches a grandmother condenmed, tortured, and then finally hanged as a witch. Mary knows her life is in danger too, for the crowd will soon have to find someone new to blame for their troubles, someone like her. When offered passage to America disguised as a Puritan girl, Mary immediately accepted. Taken in by a kind widow, named Martha, Mary finds that her new life isn't that bad, but there is always the danger of people finding out that she is a "witch child." When the settlers finally arrive in the New World they make a home in place they name Beluh. Mary secretly makes friends with a Indian boy named Jaybird, but when witch frenzy begins to tear apart her new home Mary finds herself once more tormented.

This was one of the best books on witches I have ever read. It was a very emotional book and one to be enjoyed by everyone. I can't wait for the conclusion to Mary's story in Sorceress. The cliffhanger ending makes you want more and more!

4-0 out of 5 stars Witch Child
Mary is convicted of being a witch. After Mary's Grandmother is hung for being a witch she is sent to the Americas by a stranger with similar eyes. This is an adventure for Mary. She talks to sailors, meets the Native Americans, makes new friends & enemies!
This is a great book to read & I recommend it to everyone!

5-0 out of 5 stars Captivating
I have to disagree with the other review. I personally thought this book was very interesting but you must be someone who is interested in this sort of book type.This book told of Mary's journey after losing her grandmother. It took you through the struggles of being a women during the witch hunts. And the way ones town will turn on you if you don't believe in the same thing as everyone else. If you enjoy any books about witches, Witch Child is the one for you .

3-0 out of 5 stars PHHS student view
Witch Child is currently a book being read by us in group reading in English. We complete tasks on the book and the author along the way. This helps us to get a deeper understanding of the story Witch Child.

In my opinion Witch Child is a book which I would not decide to read out of choice, however now that I must read it, I am enjoying it. I don't think I would enjoy this book if it wasn't for the romance between Tobias and Rebbekah. The opening to the story was fairly shocking to me as it went into great detail about the poor conditions the witch suspects were treated.

Although the opening to the book grabbed our interests and made us wanted to read on, we gradually lost interest as the book got on. The opinions in the group as we read diary entry 11 were ones of boredom and uninteresting. This was rather disappointing as we thought from the start the book would be a good read.

The idea of writing the book as a diary was a good idea, however I am not entirely sure that this idea was portrayed well throughout. Some of the language wasn't credable as being written for the characters eyes only, it was to formal and explained the story to much. We don't think a character such as Mary really would explain things in such detail, so much detail in fact that after a short while the book became extremely dull.

So far in this book the judgement has not been great, but I truly hope and would like to expect that the story will improve greatly over time. ... Read more

This is a great ghost story. I was introduced to it after seeing the stage-play at my local theatre. The play had the audience screaming and I just had to see how well they had translated the book.

The play is pretty faithful to the book and I urge you to see it if its ever around your area. As for the book it is well written and very chilling. I was gripped from the start, even though I knew what was happening. The story unfolds nicely and builds the mystery and horror up to a crescendo that almost leaves you gasping and then when you think its all over... well I won't spoil it - go and read it for yourself.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book, Easy Read
I thought this book was well written. Some parts raised the hairs on the back of my neck! I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an easy to read classic ghost story. It's a little old-fashioned but that only adds to the creepy atmosphere of the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderfull
Honestly when I saw the play in London I fell asleep then I woke up at intermission. I tried to go back to sleep but there was so much action it had me on the edge of my seat. I havent read the book yet but im shure its just as good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nightmares WILL follow
This is singly THE best supernautral thriller i have ever had the pleasure reading. i decided to read this book after seeing the play in London, West-end. The play had everyone screeming and constantly looking around themselves. The story is the most sping tingling tale i have ever read. It is relatively short but packs a punch! the portrayal of the Woman in Black makes it seem like she is in he room with you. WARNING!! you will prbably get nightmares after reading this book. most people i know have.! a must read

5-0 out of 5 stars Tremendous Atmosphere
The most similar book I can compare this to is The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. Like that book, The Woman in Black starts peacefully and builds up to a frightening crescendo that will "haunt" you long after you put the book down. Another similarity in the books is the tremendous sense of atmosphere. Eel Marsh House, where the haunting takes place, is set off by itself in flat, bleak, marshy wetlands and is connected to drier land by a single causeway, which becomes completely covered by water when the tide is high. When the protagonist, the young and foolishly stubborn lawyer Arthur K., sets off to spend a few days sorting out old documents by himself in the isolated mansion, you just want to scream, "Are you crazy? Don't stay there overnight, you idiot!" I particularly liked the way the spectral happenings were presented. There is no blood, no gore, just a brooding sense of evil and mystery. I also enjoyed the relationships Arthur establishes with the kindly Samuel Daily, a local landowner, and the little dog Spider that Samuel lends to him to keep him company in his ill-advised sojourn to the haunted house. All in all, a wonderfully-written ghost story that would appeal to those who find Stephen King's more lurid and less subtle books a bit distasteful. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars White is for Magic
White is for Magic is an amazing book! I loved it! I could not put it down. The series begins with Blue is for Nightmares and I would definetly start with it first. These books are about a teenage girl named Stacey who begins to recieve nightmares about her friend being murdered. The second book follows with a similar plot but is no less exciting! These are amazing thrillers/mysteries and I absolutly recommend them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome
This book is definetly one of the best books i have ever read. If you are worried because it looks kind of long.. dont be.. you can NOT put this book down! If you do want to read this book i suggest you read Blue is for Nightmares.. since it is kind of the "beggining" and things from it gets menchaned in White is for Magic .. but you dont HAVE too.. either way i suggest you get White is for Magic DEFENITLY!

5-0 out of 5 stars White is for a Magical Book!!
When you read this book you actually feel like you are one of the characters. the discription is so strong and bright.Another book of Laurie's books to check out is Blue is for Nightmares.This is the beginning book of the series.It is just as great as White is for Magic!!! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Earns an English teacher's high praise!
Yep, I teach English, and I demand a lot from my students. Should I worry that so many reviewers found the kidnap scene funny? Perhaps, but the true strength of this novel lies in its insight into the confusion and uncertainty felt by Sue and David particularly as they find themselves caught in a plot to scare a disliked teacher which soon spirals out of control. Duncan also does an excellent job of capturing Brian Griffin's dedication to his students and his reasons for being so demanding. Thus, readers are swept along with alternating sympathies, first for lonely Sue, then for the kidnapped Mr. Griffin, then for Mrs. Griffin, who knows Sue is lying about her husband's last hours, finally for David, who suffers a terrible loss himself as the story draws to a close. This is an outstanding book which will grab and hold the attention of any reader who has ever wished to exact revenge on someone in power, be it a teacher, boss, or even parent.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Gripping Tale
Killing Mr. Griffin is a story about five kids who just wanted to teach their strict english teacher a lesson and get him to be easier on his students. They had just wanted to kidnap him and scare him a little. However,things didnt go like they planned and Mr. Griffin had ended up dead. Of course they hadn't meant for anything like that to happen, so the kids in a panic did all sorts of things to cover up what they had done, but had just got themselves into deeper trouble than they were in before. With all their work though, they had left one small detail and someone...was going to piece everything together. If you want to find out how the kids got themselves out of this mess....or if they got out of it at all, read this book!

I thought Killing Mr. Griffin was a very good suspense story that will more than likely keep you at the edge of your seat. However, like in many stories the plot was good, yet you just couldnt connect with the characters and how they were feeling. That was how I felt when I read this story, but other than that I really liked how Lois Duncan had made everything happen. Also, I realized that this book is on the banned book list, but I don't understand why it would be. Though the book does have a bit of cursing and violence, there are also good things about it. Like for example, how it shows if you do something bad you can't hide from it, it'll catch up with you sooner or later. In the end, I would definitely recommend this book to fans of suspense stories.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lois Duncan Books
All of the books by Lois Duncan will keep you reading all night long, you never want to put this or other books by her down! This book Killing Mr. Griffin is extremely good and is a great horror book, you will want to read the whole series and I am 14 and I read them in two days, at most. I hope you enjoy these books including this one
Happy Reading!

5-0 out of 5 stars "Run!"
"Run!" was the last phrase Mr. Griffin said to one of his 'better students' after a conference with Susan McConnell before he was abducted to a far away place in the mountains. Mark Kinney, a teenage psychopath, planned a very discreet strategy when he was setting up the plot to murder his incredibly strict language teacher who was going to become a father. Mark Kinney, who always knew what to do, arranged the plan certain people, a certain place, and a certain time for everything. Mark even picked the class nerd; Susan McConnell. After Mark Kinney went after his teacher, he went after his friend's grandmother and then he made a challenge to attack Susan McConnell when she made an effort to tell the police. Susan was saved after when Mrs. Kathy Griffin went in so Susan can tell her side of story when she saw her group abduct Mr. Griffin. Luckily, she was saved and she told the truth...and she and the other members were to go on trial.

5-0 out of 5 stars A good story.
Four Kids are the main characters along with Mr.Griffin. A girl named susan narrates the book, usally the geek, she gets invited to a place by a bunch of popular girls and guys where nobody usally goes to. When the evil plot comes into order. The kids want to SCARE there evil english Teacher Mr.Griffin. The kids intended to just scare him, they never intended to murder the poor guy. With Mark as the psycho kid who burns cats, and thinks his life is horrible, he does something else, which is worse. With Dave as the soft guy and with Betsy as the popular girl, look-at-me type. This book shows you different types of people who were well though of and L. Duncan really did a great job in making her books different, being this is one of the last L. Duncan books I have read. I noticed every story is unique and different, one with there dad as a FBI agent to a girl who has a "Third Eye" L. Duncan really takes the cake in this book in making it original.

It is a story of being betrayed by your own "Friends" I would recomend this wonderful story to people who like hanging on until the end for a great wonderful story. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A WONDERFUL TEAR - JERKING BOOK!!!
"A Summer to Die," was a great book. It was about two girls who have to face the new challenges, changes and having to make new friends when they move out of the city. Fifteen year old Molly has always been pretty, populair, and had an easy time making new friends. Molly already has a boyfriend in the first week they move their. But it does not come as easily to Meg, her sister. She can't make a single friend, and she is depressed. Her dad sits in his study all day writing a book, her sister is her usual, annoying, self. But one day Molly is rushed to the hospital and it is then that Meg knows that something is terribly wrong with her sister. Molly comes home and has a new drug she has to take. But Meg notices that Molly's long hair is falling out, Molly is loosing weight and she gets sick again. Read this story for yourself to find out the ending.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful--and it holds up!
I read this book in 6th grade (or so) when it first come out. It had an impact on me (I feared a friend had leukemia because she was getting nosebleeds), and I never forgot it. I reread it yesterday and realized how powerful and well-written it truly is. It's an amazing first novel (from someone who went on to write other of my favorites).

While the book rarely mentions Meg's school life (and never any contemporary friends), it still conveys a sense of her whole life. I cried for her, for Molly, for their whole family. And I was angry with the parents for not sharing the seriousness of Molly's illness with Meg sooner.

It's a keeper (and I wish I'd kept my copy!)

4-0 out of 5 stars A sad but wonderful book!
A Summer to Die is a great book. It is about two sisters that have just moved to a new house in the country. They have finally settled in to their new home when Molly, Meg's beutiful, popular older sister starts having nosbleeds. They are a pain, because Molly gets all the attention and is constantly worried about how she looks. But when MMolly's hair starts falling out from the drugs she takes, and she gets stuck in the hospital again from a MAJOR nosebleed, Meg starts to realize what her parents knew all along. That Molly had cancer and was going to die. This is a sad but also happy book, because while Molly dies, there is a new beginning when a baby is born. I loved this book, and you will too!

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book!
This book is amazing. The first time I read it I was 10 years old. I am 23, I read the book for the second time last week, and it is still one of my all time favorite books. It's an emotional story about life and death. You really feel the characters and the farther you read the more "real" they become Easy to read, easy to fall in love with. I think this book is a must read for any age, but be prepared to shed a few tears!

5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
This was a great book when I read it in 4th grade and it still is. I love the meaning behind the book. I would recommend it to all middle school girls. ... Read more
