    Nokosee: Rise of the New Seminole by Micco Mann. It has the defiant voice of a 17 year old girl who manages to overcome everything thrown at her in the course of the novel which is a lot-- and she does it in a way that would make all girls proud-- not in a superhuman way or through the assistance of some heroic act of a man but via her own means.



    The People by Zenna Henderson are psychically gifted extraterrestrials who look like humans. They become stranded on Earth after their starship crashes during a space migration they refer to as the Crossing. What transpires is an engaging look at us meeting them in a desert town in Arizona. The series inspired Francis Ford Coppola's legendary 1972 TV movie starring Kim Darby and William Shatner. I say "legendary" because it hasn't been officially released as a DVD and only exists as a subpar, blurry VHS memory (http://www.amazon.com/People-1972-USA-Ki… That's too bad because from what I heard from people who saw the original on TV nearly 40 years ago , it was magical-- just like the books.


    The King Must Die by Mary Renault. Set in ancient Greece it follows Theseus on a journey of discovery while painting a vivid picture of the times. Loved the descriptions of young uninhibited Greeks running buck naked up hills and through forests and making love among the flowers. The scenes of naked teens jumping bulls with back flips cries out for a cinematic interpretation. Ms. Renault's written a series of historical novels set in this period and all of them are so worthy.

    One of my favourite single novels is Awake and Dreaming by Kit Pearson. It's a great book, I've read it 4 times :P

    Another good book would be Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson.. it's almost like a diary of the character.. but still a REALLY good book. Hope you like the suggestions.. keep reading lol!! :)

    I just read One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. A little confusing at first, but one of the best books I've ever read. And I'm on Pride and Prejudice now. Alright so far.

    You actually enjoyed Wicked? I didn't know of anyone on the planet that actually liked that book or series. The writing is terrible and unnecessarily crude (not to mention boring), anyway, I digress. Two good resources to find out what to read next is http://www.whatshouldireadnext.com and http://www.thebookbuff.blogspot.com

    You might want to try the "Gregor The Overlander" series by Suzanne Collins or Neil Gaiman's books. For Gaiman, I highly recommend "Neverwhere," "The Graveyard Book," and "Anansi Boys."
