    middle school--thought it was great.  Quite creepy.  Joan Lowry Nixon.

    I also used to read books by Vivian Alcock--two I remember were the Stonewalkers and the Haunting of Cassie Palmer

    (I know I'm in horror mode here--but I remember enjoying those)

      Unfortunately, that one is perfectly understandable.  After dealing with mom walking out and Foster Care for over a year, yeah...

      not exactly a good genre for her.

      I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.

        can go with some of the older classics, too...

        E.B. White, for example.  Although she's probably above that level..I always loved Trumpet of the Swan.

        and, of course, Twain.  Gonna stop posting for a bit--you've got a pretty good list from everyone here!

        •  No worries, and thanks for the suggestions (0+ / 0-)

          and discussion.

          It all comes down to there being TONS of good stuff, but even more crap, ya know?

          I don't blame Christians. I blame Stupid. Which sadly is a much more popular religion these days.
