My absolute favorite is Welcome to the World, Baby Girl by Fannie Flagg. It's basically a story of a woman trying to find out about her past and how that affects her life.

I'm officailly addicted to The Secret Garden. I read it 6 times when I was FIVE YEARS OLD, the original, not abridged or anything, and I loved it.

Who is Fearless by? I love Alexander Dumas! Hmm, I'm thinking it is so hard to single out a book! :(

::nods:: (y) Francine Pascal...These books are wonderful! They're full of action and tension and deceit and killing... and it's, to me, very much like Alias!!!!

eeeee... :shocked: i used to like those but now that i think about it... those were reeeaaallly baad!!! :wacky: but...

Fearless is so different... it's a totally different type of story, writing style and the main character, Gaia is NOTHING like those diztes in Sweet Valley who worried about their hair or makeup... Gaia worries about her life!
