Reasonably compelling, although I found the symptoms of autism a bit too by-the-book and the use of behaviorism a little too silver-bullet-esque, but maybe that just means I've done too much other reading.

Mildly original Boxcar Children book. The culprit isn't as totally transparent as she is in most of them.

All in all, not a bad young adult novel by Diane Hoh, who is better known in the genre of teen horror/suspense books. Lucy St. Cloud is a teenage girl who seems to have it all -- friends, family, athletic boyfriend -- until a car accident leaves her in need of serious rehabilitation. Fighting to regain her ability to walk, she begins spending time online and ends up in a situation nearly as scary as the car accident. The cautionary tale against online predators rings a little cliche today, but the book was written in 1998, when such warnings were justified for teens of all ages, and once the author moves away from melodramatic description, the story moves quickly.

Humorous, serious, stickler-ish, and determined all at once. Worth a read, even if you're American and Truss' style of grammar doesn't apply to you.

One of my favourite books. Gorgeously illustrated (of course) and genuinely challenging without being TOO hard. Even if you have to cheat and look up the answer, there's still so much to look at on a second (or third, or fourth) read. This is one of those books that I like more and more as I get older.

Sweetly clever rhyming tale about a very selfish elephant who runs away from her life in the circus in search of something better. Instead she finds something much worse and learns that maybe life wasn't so bad after all.

The book that started them all. Ten classic Encyclopedia Brown cases, including the very first problem Chief Brown couldn't solve, how Encyclopedia made an enemy of Bugs Meany, and how he and Sally Kimball teamed up.
