Pick one with any order from my shelf:

  • Witch Child by Celia Rees (teen).  This has one line in the book underlined in ink and a small bit of the front cover is damaged. Otherwise, in good shape.
  • Knocked Out by my Nunga-Nungas by Louise Rennison. This was sent to me and is a Bookcrossing book. The person wrote the Bookcrossing number in black permanent marker on the edges of the book. Otherwise, in excellent shape.
