About the Meg Cabot books, you linked to the Meg Cabot TEEN so, Green if you get her any of those, make sure it's ones from the link Oasis provided. Meg Cabot also writes other books, funny ones, but with wayyy to much adult content.
I have to second what some have already said- A Wrinkle in Time, Princess Bride, Catcher in the Rye, etc...there are so many awesome books listed here. Makes me want to reread them. *lol*
I second all of those! They are all fantastic reads.
harry potter!! best book ever
I've read several hundred books at this point and I'd say the Potter series will go down as one of my favorites ever. Very well written character driven story with a fantastic story arc. You can't go wrong there, and its miles better than that Twilight crap
Also, when I was a kid, a bit younger than yours, the very first author I got into was Roald Dahl. For my money one of the best writers ever...start with Matilda and then the rest of them, they're all great.
If you wanna check out some fantasy that isn't on the maturity level of the stuff I like now, try David Eddings' 'Belgariad' series. It was the first typical fantasy series I read and I have very fond memories of it. The first book is called 'Pawn Of Prophecy'.
P.S. - Major bump here didn't realize it till after
Tis ok, we don't mind old thread bumps here.
