Fiction books with 5-word titles?

i've entered in a book hunting contest and i'd like to ask for your help. ^_^ [there's nothing in the rules that say we can't ask for help..so it ain't cheating. hahaha.]

sooo we have a list of tasks to complete in on or before February 28,2010.

but for this question i'm just gonna ask for help with just one task.. this task being: Hunt a book with a title that contains 5 words.

all suggestions are WELCOME. :D (i compiled about 50 books already. but the more correct titles one gives, the higher the score. and there's a limit of only ONE entry per contestant sooo yeah. better safe than sorry. hahaha.)

and ohyeah. one condition of the hunt was that answers should only be from FICTION BOOKS. :D

PLEASE and THANK YOU! ^____^

Update:

almost forgot.. i need the titles of the books plus their authors. :D

    Cool. I thought the idea for school days was great anyway. I loved both "The System" and "The Question" so much, but i think i will have to go for "The Question" first, and then "The System". I really love them all, but would love most to be in "School Days" and 2The Question" as they were my favourites. PS- I looked at the page you posted on ur profile, saw I am in the nominations- does this mean I need to re-audition? I would like to be a student, I loved the idea for the school story, the one you put under Ice Queen and would want to be one of the geeks/dorks/nerds. Ok, so my character is the new girl in town, who's weird and wacky parents have moved to start their new business venture, The Liberry Cafe-half library, half juice bar (I said they were weird). She is quite an introvert, although gets some unique-ness and individuality from her parents- she is an aspiring writer and talented flute player, and when it comes to her hobbies she doesn't follow the crowd. She has long, dark-blonde hair, and she likes it that way- she can use it to hide behind. She isn't plain, but she isn't beautiful-she's somewhere in the middle. She can get a bit embarrased by her parent's whackiness, but loves them really, and is grateful for them- they teach her that being plain, popular and one of the crowd isn't all it's cracked up to be. Of corse, its B&A were disscusing here- the Liberry would be a central area for book getting, after school chatting and first dates. It could even be the central area for "Book Wars"- a battle in which the pupil's book taste divide becomes more evident. For example, the four corners of the Library section could be as followed: "Epicdom"- all the fantasy geeks hang out here. They refer to it as their kingdom. "Classicland"- all the greatest people who read all the greatest books-both old and modern classics. The central area and the place where all the main characters would hang. "Tweenville"- all the 6-8th graders go here to fap over their sugary, twee little teen fiction books. "Non Fiction"- a boring section gets a boring name. Collectors, freaky obsessive others and maths teachers habitate this corner. BQ- The principle. As the ringleader of this whole project, you have to be the leader of the whole school!
