"Alice in Quantumland"?

It's a great book! Very thought provoking and existential.

Here's a preview of the book from Google Books:

OMG!  this is the coolest thing I have seen in a long while.  I know some kids that will love this site.  Thanks for the clue, Sue.

Kockroach by Tyler Knox is pretty good, if you liked The Metamorphosis.  It's sort of a present-day cockroach type story, expanded, with more characters and plotlines.

As a part of the same site that the literature map found at is Gnod's suggestions ( http://www.gnooks.com/ ). You type in 3 authors you like and it will make suggestions for other authors that you might also enjoy. I have found all sorts of new authors to try that way.
