Book #5 -- Francesca Lia Block, The Waters & the Wild, 111 pages.

A wonderful little novella about three unusual children finding their place in the world.

Book #6 -- Nancy Werlin, Extraordinary, 393 pages.

I have to admit, I liked Impossible better, but this one was still good, particularly the focus on what it means to be human, and whether any of us are ever really truly "ordinary".

Book #7 -- James Norcliffe, The Boy Who Could Fly, 312 pages.

A great illustration of the clichees "out of the frying pan and into the fire" and "be careful what you wish for, you just might get it"

Book #8 -- Wendy Delsol, Stork, 355 pages.

Kat's never really been all that in touch with her Icelandic heritage. Until her parents get divorced and her mother moves them back up to her native Minnesota. Suddenly Kat's discovering something - those old legends? - they're a lot closer than she thought.
