When she goes to New York, she begins to disregard her children didn't send them letters, etc. The book talks about how frustrated Ellie is, trying to take care of her two siblings Albert, named after Einstein, and Marie, named after Marie Curie , and her father. She's also unimpressed with her own looks, as people are constantly comparing her to her mother, who's well-known for her looks.
She also is good friends with a girl named Holly, who I think is the child of a single mother. At some point, Ellie makes a plan to go see her mom by taking a bus or a train not too sure to go to her mother's apartment in New York. A few things to note: - They have two elderly neighbors who lived together and would give them lemonade. I've been searching for 2 years now, so it would really mean a lot to me if someone could please give me the name.
Thank you so, so much. I read in the 70s what I think was a trilogy of books based in 18th or 19th c Russia. Young boy and girl captured by maurading Moors and treated as slaves. I have a memory of maybe candle or sword in the title and Harem and Eunochs in the story. Trying to find a book I read back in maybe between The book is about a girl who was murdered by her friends but she doesn't remember. As my memory recalls I believe she wakes up on a "bus" with a bunch of other kids her age who are also dead. The book puts on details about how they died.
Everyone looks exactly how they did when they died. The people who commit suicide are silenced Angels. There is a mysterious boy in the back of the "bus"that ends up taking a liking to her and helping her figure out her murder. I don't remember if they were going to a highschool or to the great beyond. I do remember that she does travel back and visit where she died.
And I believe she might of killed her killer at the end? I'm so desperate to get my hands on this book again because I was so young when I read it. There's this book I read 3 years ago. It was quite long. I remember it took place in the summer and it was from a teenage girls point of view. Her father owned a restaurant. Her mother was shot and died in that same restaurant.
One day the girl finds a shoe on the beach Oh yeah this is a maritime story with the foot still inside. Then she starts hearing a voice. The voice of a middle aged sounding woman. She tries to drown out the voice but no music helps, only radio static so she listens to it very loudly and her dad thinks she's crazy. In their house they have a spare apartment thingy above it. Two boys slightly older than her rent it out for the summer. She falls in love with one of them but her dad doesn't like her interacting with them. She also likes to sketch things.
She mentions at one point that she prefers to sketch unusual things, this is at a time that she is sketching a dead bird, I think. Anyways along the way she becomes close friends with a call girl who is extremely nice and a great person. But she goes to do a job at some address only to find its an abandoned GRODY house and she gets abducted and goes missing for a long time. The friend she had in the car had fallen asleep and woke up when headlights shined in her eyes and she immediately thought of that song that goes "woop woop thats the sound of the police" because subconsciously she noticed the licence plate which was the same as the name of the artist of that song.
Then the original girl with the dead mom starts dedicating her time to finding her call girl friend. She is going crazy over this and at one point almost drowns. Throughout this whole tine that voice is still talking to her. That's all I really remember then at the end it's revealed that it was a letter or an email or something to the dude she fell in love with. Written in the late 's or in the early 's.
The story is about a guy who is some sort of office worker or businessman that lives in a city. He contracts some type of undiagnosable illness. He somewhat fades away throughout the story. In the beginning, there is a scene with him on the subway where he is disoriented and does not remember who he is, or who to call for help. Trying to find a book written in the late 's-early 's that is about a male office worker, or businessman who lives in a city.
How to Find That Book You've Spent Years Looking For
In the book, this guy contracts an undiagnosable illness. He sort of just fades away throughout the story. In the beginning, there is a scene where where he becomes disoriented on a subway. He does not know who he is, or who he should call for help. Each book is the story of one of the girls or guys point of view. I think in one of the books one of the guys has a truck, possibly the older of the 3.
The covers of the books were blue, green, last one possibly yellow with a picture of the guy on the cover just their head. I read them when I was in elementary, year or Came out in the last few months. Woman author, woman protagonist that moves into town and enrolls her son into a school and notices he starts acting strangely and so do the other kids. When she confronts the principal he wont tell her anything and can tell they're hiding something. Gray cover with school in the background.
My moms been trying to find it for a few weeks. I'm trying to find a book i've read a few years ago back in high school. I remember that a boy had to live with an old lady possibly his grandma in a house FULL of books. Also in the house, was a strange man, and he was somehow connected with the boy.
Been looking for this book for ages. Can't remember the title or author only that it's a YA book about a girl I think who's a siren who,when she sings a song, the lyrics come true. I think she was kind of like a mercenary and in the first few chapters she sings light em up by fall out boy. I'm looking for a children's book, possibly from the s. A group of school students travel home for term break, but decide to use a variety of transport train, boat etc.
One of the boys is kidnapped by gypsies.
I would like to know the title of the book. Been looking for this book but all I have is what I remember of it. I believe the main characters are in college, the heroine is into music. I want to say the main guy has a tattoo of something to do with theatre. I'm looking for a book I think it's for young adults and fiction about a teenage boy who meets this girl with red hair and bright green eyes.
This girl has the ability to turn into a fox. I remember vaguely that this girl has a gang of other shapeshifting teenagers and they can all turn into different animals. I think at some point the main character The boy I mentioned finds out that he can turn into a black cat. I forgot the name of this book but I remember the cover. It's a picture of a girl with very fair skin and freckles I think with red hair and bright green eyes.
Please please please let me know if you remember this book or its name or author. It's a book I read back when I was little, in the mids early 20s. I remember it was a child's series that involved a pixie from another realm with rainbow wings that met a girl and her brother, and they all worked together to return various creatures back to where they belong. I remember there being a mermaid in a fish tank or a pet store and an aggressive gnome in someone's garden. Anyone who knows, please email me at aarin. I am looking for a children's book which may have been written in French.
All I remember is the cover which had a boy fishing in a boat. What was unique about this book is that it came with a round frame that had the same image as the cover I believe and it could be hung separately. I am going on very little here, but perhaps that special additional gift of frame triggers memories. Nathalie -I can be reached at nas71 aol. Im looking for this childrens book seris I read when I was about years old. The main one I can remember was about these two characaters who go to an apple orcharchd that gives streanthaning abilities. The main character eats a rotten apple because he cant reach the ripe ones and becomes weak whild his friend eats a ripe one and becomes stronger.
The first one is about someone who ends up in this land that split between numbers and letters? The second one is about these two rings. Any thoughts? I'm looking for a suspense novel, probably quite recent which I think takes place in England. I read the first couple of chapters on Amazon and now would like to buy it for my kindle.
We see a mother out walking in the street with her baby in a pram and her young son. They see a car accident where a silver car crashes into a shop front. She goes to help and there are some casualties. I think she was already under some pressure and this accident will have consequences for her. Thanks for any help you can give. I'm trying to find a book that I read when I was way younger I"m now 45 eek!!!
So what I remember was the setting was in New York they had 4th or 5th grade students take a test and one of the girls scored high and she got a scholarship to one of the private schools in New York. Of course she has a difficult time transitioning going to the all girls school. Thats all a remember. I'm looking for a cassette tape from roughly the late 80's or early 90's that was likely under the category of "bedtime stories. I distinctly remember her describing a dark room where she finds a machine or robot covered in colorful lights and buttons.
I also remember that a storm was coming, and that she met a man on the roof who had some kind of contraption that determined the weather. Would love any help! The book I'm looking for begins something like this
