- just hang around on this forum and you'll have a really good list to choose from -- I've gotten several ideas from here.
I'm almost done with Everlost
by Neal Shusterman and I have REALLY enjoyed it, basically I can't put it down. I would recommend it to anyone. (Can't remember who on here recommended it, but thank you! You're right, it is really good!)
I also started to read a book called Replay
by Ken Grimwood, the idea is fantastic -- it's about a guy who dies of a heart attack (this isn't a spoiler -- happens on the first page) and he goes back in time to when he was 18 yrs old and gets to live his life over again, with all of his memories intact from his first life. I don't want to spoil anything but here is a big *WARNING*: there is sexual content that is not suitable for . . . well, anyone -- it's way too much. I've stopped reading it twice, but it's such a good story I came back to it. You just have to be good at skimming (you can pretty much skip an entire chapter and be OK). So anyway, consider yourself warned. My brother-in-law has read it before and says it's worth the read for the ending so I'll probably have to finish it, he says I've already gotten past the worst of it. I'll let you know if it was worth it and exactly what to stay away from. If anyone has read The Time Travelers Wife
it is kind of the same idea but not exactly the same -- also a good book with an excellent idea, but there was some crap thrown into that one too. What is with these authors??? GRRRR . . . but anyway, The Time Traveler's Wife
is going to be a movie, coming out this September I believe -- should be really good (if they left out the crap)!!
