How Many Books Are In The Hatchet Series

which one of these books should i read for summer reading.

I liked the outsiders (If you dont know whats thats about theres something wrong with you), The City of Embers series ( post-apocoliptic series), Tangerine (a boy who lost most of his sight when his brother sprayed paint in his eyes), Knight (WWII book written by Eillie Wiesel), Boy ( an autobiography about a boys...

You should read ‘Playing With Matches,’ hands down. It’s a wondeful book and I’m not just saying that because I wrote it. Well, actually, I am, but how many of those other authors took the time to give you advice?

Can you recommend adventure/non fiction/ fantasy good book.

I want to read either a adventure/non fiction/ fantasy book for my school book report. I need a book which is not in a series, at least 200 pages, and is a great book to read.

Hatchet by Gary Paulsen is a good adventure type bookI don’t know how old you are, but I remember reading it when I was younger and I really liked it . . . don’t remember how many pages though.The Giver by Lois Lowry is a really good fantasy book that I read in middle school.

good book 4 6th garad.

can some one tell me any good book for th if it good and how many pages

I know of a few good authors and some good titles, but can’t tell you about the pages. Still, if you get a chance, might check out Anthony Horowitz and his Alex Rider series.Alex is a 14 year old British boy who finds himself working undercover for MI-6. He gets into some odd situations and has some ingenius ways of getting out of them.Walter Dean Myers is another excellent author. He wrote Hoops for one (langauge is very realistic). I also read Monster (good – done in a screenplay format) and Scorpions (about a young boy and the gang his brother ran before going to prison).Gary Paulsen is someone else to check out. He wrote Hatchet (the young boy survives a plane crash in the wilderness and has to make it on his own). There are other books in the series and he has many other titles.What about Darren Shan? I’ve read a few of the Cirque du Freak books – this is YA horror. Young boy goes to a freak show, comes back later and steals a pet spider with a poisonous bite. In the end, in order to save his friend, he becomes a half vampire. I’m only on book 3 I think it is.No, I’m not a young adult, but I do like to check out the genre.:)Other good series/authors: Scott Westerfeld (Uglies, Pretties, Specials, Extras and Peeps, The Last Days); Phillip Pullman His Dark Materials trilogy (fantasy).

I was wondering if you know any good books….

I’ve read a lot of books, but I’m at the point where I don’t know what to read; either I’ve read it already, or it’s bad. If anyone has any suggestions, please tell me! Some of my favorite books are: Inkheart (series), The Secrets of Nicholas Flamel (The Alchemist), 13 Reasons Why, My…

Oh, I have read and enjoyed so many of the books you listed. (including thirteen reasons why, Inkheart and sequals, my sisters keeper, rangers apprentice, twilight, harry potter, of mice and men, and many others.Here are five of my favorite books, with accompanying descriptions:Read The Hunger Games, by Suzanne Collins. It is truely a great read.Here’s a description:Twenty- four are forced to enter. Only the winner survives.In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by twelve outlying districts. Each year, the districts are forced by the Capitol to send one boy and one girl between the ages of twelve and eighteen to participate in the Hunger Games, a brutal and terrifying fight to the death – televised for all of Panem to see.Survival is second nature for sixteen-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who struggles to feed her mother and younger sister by secretly hunting and gathering beyond the fences of District 12. When Katniss steps in to take the place of her sister in the Hunger Games, she knows it may be her death sentence. If she is to survive, she must weigh survival against humanity and life against love……………………………………Also, you might like Graceling by Kristen Cashore.Here’s a description(I hand typed it because I couldn’t find it online, so any typo’s are mine. Without further ado, the description:His eyes. Kasta had never seen such eyes. One was silver and the other, gold. They glowed in his sun-darkened face, uneven, and strange. She was surprised that they hadn’t shown in the darkness of their first meeting. They didn’t seem human…Then he raised his eyebrows a hair, and his mouth shifted into the hint of a smirk. He nodded at her, just barely, and it released her from her spell. Cocky, she thought. Cocky and arrogant, this one, and that was all there was to make of him. Whatever game he was playing, if he expected her to join he would be disappointed.In a world where people born with an extreme skill — called a grace — are feared and exploited, Kasta carries the burden of a grace that even she despises: the grace of killing. She lives under the command of her uncle Randa, King of the Middluns, and is expected to execute his dirty work, punishing and torturing anyone who displeases him.When she first meets prince Po, who is graced with combat skills, Kasta has no hint of how her life is about to change.She never expects to become Po’s friend.She never expects to learn the truth behind her Grace—or the terrible secret that lies hidden far away . . . a secret that could destroy all seven kingdoms with words alone……………………………………Also, I just finished an awesome book called Hawksong, byAmelia Atwater-Rhodes.Here’s a description:DANICA SHARDAE IS an avian shapeshifter, and the golden hawk’s form in which she takes to the sky is as natural to her as the human one that graces her on land. The only thing more familiar to her is war: It has raged between her people and the serpiente for so long, no one can remember how the fighting began. As heir to the avian throne, she’ll do anything in her power to stop this war—even accept Zane Cobriana, the terrifying leader of her kind’s greatest enemy, as her pair bond and make the two royal families one.Trust. It is all Zane asks of Danica—and all they ask of their people—but it may be more than she can give……………………………………Another great book is Poison Study by Maria Snyder. I couldn’t find a better description, but trust me, it’s good!Here is a description:About to be executed for murder, Yelena is offered a reprieve. She’ll eat the best meals, have rooms in the palace, and risk assassination by anyone trying to kill the Commander of Ixia. And so Yelena chooses to become a food taster. But the chief of security, leaving nothing to chance, deliberately feeds her Butterfly’s Dust, and only by appearing for her daily antidote will she delay an agonizing death from the poison. As Yelena tries to escape her dilemma, disasters keep mounting. Rebels plot to seize Ixia and she develops magical powers she can’t control. Her life’s at stake again and choices must be made. But this time the outcomes aren’t so clear! A romance blossoms, a power grows, and villians plot. Will Yelena be able to save her friends, and herself?…………………………………..Finally, another fantastic read is Shatterglass, by tamora pierce. It’s like a fantasy murder mystery, it’s fantasticHere’s a description:Kethlun Warder was a gifted glassmaker until his world was shattered in a freak accident. Now his remaining glass-magic is mixed with lightning, and Tris (a spunky student weather-mage) must teach him to control it (if she can teach him to control his temper first). But there’s more at stake than Keth’s education. With his strange magic, he creates glass balls which reflect the immediate past and expose the work of a murderer. If he can harness his power properly, he’ll be able to see the crimes as they take place. Keth and Tris race against time and the local authorities to catch a murderer who’s hiding in plain sight……………………………………I hope I helped, but if you don’t like the sound of any of those then try this:These links take the guess work out of choosing a book; they will match you and your preferences to a book that covers what you like to read about.Enter a book you like and the site will analyse its database of real readers’ favourite books (over 32,000 and growing) to suggest what you could read next.http://www.whatshouldireadnext.com/http://www.gnod.net/http://www.allconsuming.net/Good luck finding a book, and happy reading!~ClarkieEDIT: Sorry it’s so long, I was trying to provide you with as many options as possible.

describe the chracters….summarize the plot…….setting…….i=theme… and thats it ..i hav a book repot do tomorow..and i havent dunn ANYTHING! not even dunn reading the book so plz help THNX

ok the book hatchet is about:HATCHET: the boy is on a plane to go see his dad and its just him and the pilot on the plane. all he has is $20 dollars for a snack and a hatchet (like an axe) that his mom gave him. well the pilot has a heart attack and dies and so the plane is about to crash so the boy (sorry i forgot his name it was 5th grade when i read this lol) he takes the controls and tries to land the plane and ends up crash landing the plane in a lake in the middle of nowhere. well he has to survive for like 54 days with nothing but his money (which isnt of much use stranded in the middle of nowhere alone when you’re only like 12 lol) and his hatchet. basically no one knows where he is or anything. in one part of the story he dives back in the river to swim into the plane to try to get the emergency kit that was somewhere in the plane. in the process he drops his hatchet but he dives down and finds it. basically good portion of the book is just him trying to survive.he builds a shelter out of sticks and he uses his hatchet to chop wood to make things such as sharp sticks to spear fish to eat and he uses the firewood to cook it and he also keeps track of how many days he has been stranded by making tally marks on a rock. finally a search party rescues him after like 50 or 60 something days. there are other books after this one they are a series. based on a true story.hope this helps and good luck!God bless-livie

Good book for a tween that hates to read.

My almost 10 year old niece hates to read and is behind her grade level for reading…I need some books that will not bore her to death but are not very difficult reads either.She is in to tween things like Hanna Montana.Any ideas?Thanks!

I used to read a lot when I was younger.Some things I recommend would be the Baby Sitter’s Club. It is a series of books (I don’t even know how many but there are LOTS of them).http://www.scholastic.com/annmartin/bsc/…They used to be popular back in the day lol.Something more “modern” might be the Harry Potter Books.The Giver was a book I enjoyed, especially since I read it before I was suppose to for a class. (I never read the books I was suppose to in class)Hatchet is good. I really recommend this one.http://www.amazon.com/Hatchet-Gary-Pauls…Matilda and Charlotte’s Web are also old favorites.Harriet the spy is also age appropriate and a fun read.http://www.amazon.com/Harriet-Spy-Louise…Thing about reading is being interest in the story. I personally love reading but the first few pages of any book are a real bore. Once the story starts to unfold and I genuinely want to know what is going to happen next… then I can’t put it down.Maybe you can help by reading with her. Maybe go as far as to read half the book with her. Once she is interested in what is going on, encourage her to keep going on her own or read it to you.The thing I love about books is how long it can take to read them. It is like a really good movie that lasts for days! Once she begins to enjoy reading she will likely take her own initiative to keep reading more.Good luck!

What are some books and/or movies.

I am like reading books that are survivalists type like Hatchet. I have read all of Gary Paulsen’s Hatchet series and i was just wondering what are some books or movies that are along the lines of trapped or stranded in the wilderness. Please help thank you

Books: ……………wow, please excuse length……”Winterdance” by Gary PaulsenA true account of training for, then running the 1,180 mile Iditarod over rough Alaskan terrain. Paulsen fights to survive alone with his dogsled team and rare sights of others.”The Black Stallion” by Walter Farley -Also a movie-How an Arabian stallion and one boy survive alone – then together- on a desert island after the ship carrying both of them sinks along with everyone and everything else.”White Fang” by Jack LondonMany books by London are written about dogs reverting to instinctual survival techniques after running from situations in which a man places them… this classic is such a story and one of his greats.”The Wilderness World of John Muir” by John MuirMuir had a reputation for -and a desire to- hike alone in wilderness during the worst storms nature could offer. This often left him stranded and working hard just to survive, but unlike the hapless McCandless -“Into the Wild”- Muir knew how to survive and what to do even when lightning strikes and crevasses in ice open beneath him.”Life of Pi” by MartellThe story of a boy alone on a life raft for months, living (maybe) on gear found there, and at the initial mercy of a Bengal tiger who is also on the raft… And what the boy learns to do to somehow tame a very hungry tiger (or not).Movies:”The Black Stallion” -Already listed the book-One of the most terrific movies I’ve seen regarding survival – this about the survival of one wild horse and a young boy on a desert island. Better than the book.”2012″A recent movie about surviving ‘the end of the world’ – worst case scenario – good cinematic effects. Fair.”Eli”One man carries the one post-apocalyptic book for miles alone – fighting off savage attacks and more. Fair.”Deliverance”A classic movie about happenings on a rafting adventure – survival of the fittest.”The Road” -Also a book (first) by Cormac McCarthy-A man and his son travel across an America destroyed, struggling to survive. Read the book – it’s far better – this is only ‘okay.'”Mad Max”Another classic movie about a man surviving outrageous and outraged conditions in Australia after cataclysmic events take place.”Ice Bound”The true story of a woman trapped and surviving (maybe) on the South Pole.”Battlestar Galactica” -A series-The survivors from Earth fight to keep humanity alive – at what cost and end?”I am Legend” -Also a novella by Richard Matheson-One man survives for years alone among ‘people’ who are definitely not really human anymore – or does he?”I, Robot” -Also a story by Isaac Asimov-Sci-fi -but great sci-fi and well-done. This is about robot survival – or is it?”Blade Runner” -A story by Philip K. Dick “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?”-A man trained in a city of the future to kill those called mutant androids must learn to survive their own attacks against him – and how to choose whether they’re all a danger.

What is a good book for a 14 year old.

Not for me. 14 year old girl.ABSOLUTELY NO:-romances-VAMPIRES-politics/historicHa ha, that doesn’t leave much, but I’m not telling you to answer this.She really loves adventures like:Olives OceansThe WandererHatchetBut I think she needs a few higher level books.

Here are a few of my favorite books:-A great and terrible beauty by libba bray: its about a girl gemma doyle who lives in victorian england. The story follows her and her friends at a boarding/finishing school for young girls. Gemma discovers that she has the power to enter a parallel world of magic, and she must find out how she is supposed to deal with the responsibility of that power. There is suspense, romance, magic, and evil, all the while dealing with the stress of being a teenage girl. (other books in the trilogy are rebel angels, and the sweet far thing).-Tithe by holly black: about the magic and realm of faeries in the real world. Kaye discovers the truth about her life when she moves back to new jersey with her mom after an attempt on her mom’s life. This story is more intense, dealing with drugs, and living on the streets. (sequels are valiant, and ironside).-Inkheart by cornelia funke: about a girl who can read stories to life. And the drama that ensues after she reads a story into the real world. This is a really cute story, more for the younger end of young adult, or older end in childrens. (sequels inkspell and inkdeath).-The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis: A series of 7 books about the magical world of Narnia ruled by the great lion Aslan. The books show the creation of Narnia, the end of Narnia, and the battles and rulings in between. Including the adventures of 4 children Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy when they rule the country. These books are so good, and have been made into movies, there is magic and battles and the everlasting good. Its a classic. (In order of publication: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; Prince Caspian; The Voyage of the Dawn Treader; The Horse and His Boy; The Silver Chair; The Magician’s Nephew; and The Last Battle).-Harry Potter by J.K. Rowling-Lord of the Rings by JRR Tolkien-Gone with the wind by margaret Mitchell: about Scarlett O’Hara, a young woman living in the south during the civil war. Always the daddy’s girl she soon realizes that in this hard time she can no longer be served and has to struggle to survive. She has to deal with confederate soldiers using her house as a headquarters, and life without service from a group of maids. Deals with her love of a man engaged to another woman, and the lust of rhett butler after her. Amazing, this is my favorite book ever. Its very long but worth the read in every way. (official sequel is Scarlett by Alexandria Ripley).-Water for elephants by Sara Gruen: The story centers around the life of Jacob, currently 90 years old, as he flashes back to his life when he left college after losing both his parents in a car crash and joined a traveling circus as a vet. He learns how to work with the others in an environment entirely new to him, and soon falls in love with the ringleaders wife. The majority of the story is set during the great depression.-The Secret life of bees by Sue Monk Kidd: follows the life of a Lily Owens and her “stand-in mother” a Rosaleen a black woman who leave town to find refuge somewhere else, in South Caroline in 1964. This story deals with civil right and feelings of racism, and the journey to find one’s identity.-1984 by George Orwell: futuristic totalitarian regime set in (surprise!) 1984. Winston Smith works in the Ministry of Truth and edits accounts and publishes propaganda produces by the ever watchful “Big Brother”.-War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells: aliens land on earth and attempt to destroy the whole world. The book is so much better than the movie with dakota fanning.-Da Vinici Code by Dan Brown: An adult man Langdon stumbles across a mystery as old as the Bible about religion with clues hidden in works by Da Vinci himself. This book has thrill and mystery and is a great read. (the sequel is Angels & Demons. But his other books are just as exciting: Deception Point, Digital Fortress). This is a book for older kids or adults as the content is mature.-Lord of the Flies by William Golding: A group of British school boys are deserted on an island and they attempt to govern themselves. The leaders emerge and the weak and mistreated. Deals with the controversial topics of human nature, the surviaval of the individual or the survival of the group. Parallels are drawn from the boys on the island to the ongoing war, and includes a much deeper message.-into the wild by Jon Krakauer: true story about a young man Chris McClandless and his journey across the united states as he searches for freedom of life, with views similar to thoreau. His trip takes him all the way to alaska, his last crusade so to speak. Krakauer wrote the book after he did a short magazine article on the story of Chris. Recently made into a movie, the movie was nicely done, but the book is still amazing.-Perks of being a wallflower by Stephen Chbosky: narrated by Charlie a teenage boy as he deals with awkwardness, drug use, sex, abuse. Charlie is shy, and unconventional.-watership do

70 thoughts on “How Many Books Are In The Hatchet Series

  1. 4. The Final WarningThe Summoning is great.I love all of Meg Cabot and Sophie Kinsella’s books. I am in the process of reading Emily Giffins books now. They are really great authors.

  2. 1. The Hunger Games3. City of Glass (March 24)Pendragon by D. J. MacHale:Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer. I would recommend reading them in order as I listed them or you’ll get confused really fast.

  3. The Summoning is good too. It’s about a girl named Chloe Saunders who finds out that she can see dead people, and then she gets locked into a group home for crazy teenagers. But the home isn’t really what it seems.Hope that helps, it’s great that you are trying to find ways of encouraging her to read xhatchet , harry potter or twilight.. my guess

  8. I was going to say Twilight (I used to see alot of kids when working and almost all of them 8 and up were reading these books) however if her has difficulty it might be a little difficult for her. That being said if someone reads with her it might help. I am 24 and have read them all a few times over…I love them.ugliesMaximum Ride by James Patterson:

  9. Hoot by Carl Haissen is also pretty good. It’s a movie, now. I read it before the movie came out and I liked it. Average of 300 pages.Any Gary Paulsen books, then. He’s the author of Hatchet, and the other books follow its themes. Maybe Call of the Wild, or something like that.

  10. 3. The Never War

  11. Though if you’re under 16 or 17 it may be a little old for you. It has some quite adult themes!

  12. Mediator Series by Meg Cabot*********3. The Amber SpyglassBrave New World6. The Rivers of ZadaaHis Dark Materials by Philip Pullman:Meg has tons of Young Adult Books

  13. A Heartbreaking Work of a Staggering Genius8. The Pilgrims of Rayne1984 is my favorite book of all time, too.

  14. Into the Wild Jon Krakauer is great, as someone mentioned. Also I am reading Life of Pi by Yann Martel now and I can’t put it down!

  15. I DEFINITELY recommend “The Mortal Instruments” series by Cassandra Clare. They are extremely interesting books that start out as an action book, but as you get a little further in the book, the two main characters reveal their feelings for each other, that is in the first book “City of Bones”, at the end of the first book, there is a surprising twist which leads into the second book. In the second book, the two main characters are struggling to understand and deal with the twist that happens in the first book. The whole time, however, the girl, Clary, is fighting to save her mother, and the boy, Jace, is fighting demons and his dad. It has many plots throughout the books (six books in total, four already released). It is one of the most interesting and highly addictive series I have EVER read. They are also making a movie out of it, so when that is released you can claim you read the books. You should REALLY consider them. And I would not have written this long of an answer if I didn’t love the books so much. You should really check them out! You’ll be glad you did seriously!

  16. A certain slant of light (romance with ghosts)considering that she loves JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood books, be sure you get her the Lord’s of the Underworld series by making use of Gena Showalter. YA innovations Daughter of Smoke and Bone by making use of Lani Taylor The depraved amazing series by making use of Melissa Marr The physique Finder series by making use of Bree Dispain Vampire Academy series by making use of Richelle Mead

  17. Touching Spirit Bear, Anything by Roland Smith, just like Hatchet. Hope that helps.

  18. secret life of bees- sue monk kiddhttp://www.kidbibs.com/growareader/910.h…

  19. A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park is good but its a childrens book.

  20. and “Super Spaghetti.”feverMy Side of the Mountain is one title I remember. The character isn’t stranded, he chooses to live in the wilderness… But it’s still very much a survival story.

  21. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brave_New_W…I would say PREP but you dont want romance and it has some parts a 14 year old year old girl might “freak” at… so i cant help ya..

  22. my brother sam is dead1. The Angel Experiment1. EragonInto the wild, castaway, Open water

  23. The Silver Kiss (vamps)

  24. Just go to a bookstore and have her, or you, search for something in the categories you have typed. Or look in the Young Adult reading sections for readings based around those categories. I usually do the second one. It helps a bunch to actually know what you’re looking for. Good luck!

  25. 5. Black Water3. The Kite Runner and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini – Both are set in Afghanistan and both are really good. Hopefully you’ve heard of them :)Susannah Simon is 16 years old, a lonely New York City girl who has to move from her beloved East Coast to live with her mother and new step-family in Carmel, California. Traumatic enough for any teenager, this adjustment to a new family and environment is complicated even more by Susannah’s natural gift for talking to the dead. Susannah is a mediator, a contact point for the dead who can’t (or won’t) make it to the other side. The family home is a beautiful old house harbouring its own resident unsettled spirit, which has set up residence in Susannah’s bedroom. There is also the small matter of the angry ghost haunting the locker room in her new school, desperate for revenge on an ex-boyfriend, not to mention the discovery that her school principal, Father Dominic, is also a mediator.Book Two of the TravelersGo Ask Alice is inspirational.Yes, somebody who’s read the Ranger’s Apprentice.They’re all really good books, and all are fantasy, which is all I really read

  35. I’ve read a lot of the books that you’ve read ( i love the ink series!) right now i’m currently reading The lord of the Rings By J.R.R. Tolkien and i love them. i never thought i would be able to get into them but now, they are one of my favorite series. Someone suggested to me I Capture the castle by Dodie Smith- this is the book that got J.K. Rowling started writing. Other good books that you might like are:

  36. P:S:I loved the book The Alchemist..one of my favourite !!!

  37. Harry Potter!!!! Amazing. Nothing Twilight (Ugh). It’s very adventurous and there are no romances… (welll… not huge ones… but because teenagers are the main characters… the tend to like the opposite sex)

  38. 10. The Soldiers of Halla (May 12)marley and mememory keepers daughter

  39. ***idk hope i helped and good luck

  40. 1984I’ve read a lot of books, including the ones you’ve listed above, and this is one of the most beautiful books I’ve ever read.A lot more than 200 pages, but it’s worth it.

  41. Anything Sara Dessen: Lock and Key, Just Listen, The Lullaby, This summer, the Meaning of Forever.Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants books are pretty good too.

  42. house of the scorpions

  43. 3. Brisinger

  44. Timeline, Jurrasic Park, Prey, Sphere By Michael CrichtonI was DEFINITELY going to suggest My Sister’s Keeper (one of my all-time favorites, even though it’s extremely sad). I’m glad to see someone else out there knows what I’m talking about when I mention that book. Here are some others that you may like:

  45. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nineteen_Ei…4. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd – Had to read it for my AP Language class Sophomore year for summer reading. Although it’s a traditional “Southern” book, I ended up really liking it.series of unfortunate events2. InkspellEragon series by PaoliniAn Inconvinent Truth

  46. the clique (series)- lisi harrison

  47. 5. MAXIf you really care about the number of pages, you could go to barnesandnoble.com and type in the title of the book you want to know the number of pages of, search it, click on the title, and it will tell you somewhere on that page. You’ll just have to look around a little.

  48. Also, when encouraging kids to read, you don’t have to use just books – magazines or anything like that are a great way of getting kids that don’t like books to read! I’m sure Hanna Montana do magazines so that would be a great start for her. Why not begin by taking her to pick out a few magazines she likes and reading them with her first. Then perhaps you could move onto a bookshop/library where she could choose some books she might like.5. Life of Pi by Yann Martel – Had to read it for my school this past summer. Ended up liking this one too :)4. The Reality BugThe Uglies by Scott Westerfeld. very Sci-Fi. Fun stuff.

  49. A Heartbreaking Work of a Staggering Genius really left me in awe after I read it. It is a memoir written by Dave Eggers (also the author of You Shall Know our Velocity!). There are certain parts of the book that I wouldn’t recommend to anyone under the age of 13, but the book really hit me in the right way.wow, you cut out most of the books i know1. The Merchant of Deathhttp://www.roalddahl.com/Vivian is a teenage werewolf. When the moon is high, she feels the call to run wild in the woods, to feel the forest floor beneath her paws. But, when she moves into a new town, she meets a boy. A human. Her family disapproves but she is head over paws. With growing tension within her pack and her lack of control over her own abilities, she wonders if her boy will love her, or more importantly, if he will survive loving her. Jealously, isolation and competition within her extended family all threaten what tender happiness she tries to build.

  50. 1. The Birth of Venus by Sarah Dunant – Set in Renaissance Italy; it’s basically a coming of age story about a girl and the relationships in her life. She wants to be a painter, etc etc…some love in it.

  51. Inkheart – about a man who can read things out of books. But one day he reads the book, Inkheart, and traps his wife inside and brings out three characters, two of which are evil people.Holes by Louis Sachar is a REALLY good book. I read it before I saw the movie, too, and they’re both pretty close. I think this might have about 300 pages, too.AMAZING SERIES.Private (series)Here are some other fantasy and such books of the same genre as Harry Potter and Twilight:The Clique Series, There are nine books, and a summer collection which consists of 5 smaller books.Lullabies for little criminals, by Heather O’Neill.here are some that i liked………..

  52. I would say though, I know another answer says to maybe use the Twilight books but I think perhaps some of the themes in these books may be too adult for a ten year old. Perhaps she could move onto those books when she is 13 or 14.Inheritance by Christopher Paolini:Edit: I know many kids read Twilight and I think that the first 2 books in the series are fine for a kid of 8,9 or 10 but the third and definitely the last has themes that some parents might not want a child that young reading. It’s up to the individual parent really.

  53. Book One of the Travelersgo ask aliceThe Mortal Instruments by Cassandra Clare:

  54. Have you read The Call of the Wild? That was always one of my favorites. Of course, the one trying to survive is a dog (but not in a childish, anthropomorphic kind of way).

  55. Terry Pratchett’s Tiffany Aching books (The Wee Free Men, A Hat Full of Sky, Wintersmith), Wyrd Sisters, Lords and Ladies, or The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents.

  56. you might like Graceling by Kristen CashoreThe Giver is phenominal.

It is truely a great read.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Player_Pian…Goose Girl, Princess Academy, Book of 1,000 days by Shannon haleAlso by Eoin Colfer, the Artemis Fowl series.

Her mother disappears but she meets a few people who could help her. It’s a fantasy novel, with adventure and just a teensy bit of romance.Book Three of the Travelers (March 24)

  62. Here is a list of books I’ve read/re-read recentlyOutlander series by Diana Gabaldon (amaizing books, each one is about 600 pages long)”Death by Murder David Lindsay” – you have to search that way.

  63. I agree with the first post – Roald Dahl books are great! I am a teacher and whenever we do these books on school the kids become really involved. This Roald Dahl website is great for kids and could help to get her interested in the first place:the book thieftime windows,I am not sure on the author though (sorry) but it is about this girl who just moved into a house and fines a dollhouse in it When the girls looks into the windows of this house she can see secnes from the past, inside the house.
