You should read "The Story of Tracy Beaker" by Jacqueline Wilson. Also, The Dare Game, Starring Tracy Beaker and Tracy Beaker's thumping Heart. They're all good, but only because it's Tracy Beaker books

I agree with Chomalita!
Blift, I live in the U.S. so I still have no clue who she is... I'll look her up, though to make your day! :)

Oh, and the Steps across The Water.
The last one isn't all that good, but it is for my book club.

Recent reads:
Slaughterhouse Five - Kurt Vonnegut
Catch 22 - Joseph Heller
Cryptonomicon - Neal Stephenson
The Awakening - Kate Chopin (for school)

All had some degree of merit (except The Awakening, that was terrible) and Cryptonomicon is just first class entertainment. For anyone new to cyber/cypherpunk, try Neal Stephenson's Snow Crash, it's a classic.

John Dies at the End is my new favorite book. It is an excellent mix of paranoia inducing horror, and the vulgar humor used in films like "Clerks". I cannot wait for the second book to come out now.
So I could just type anything here, and it'll show up at the bottom of my posts?

I, Robot by Isaac Asimov was a good read. It's not for fans of modern, edge-of-your-seat sci-fi, though.
