The Hunger Games Book
I'll be honest. I really didn't want to read this book. Reluctantly, when there was nothing else on my reading list, I picked it up. Then I couldn't put it down. The narrator, Arnold Spirit, says it like he means it. Being poor sucks. Life on the reservation sucks. Yet when he tries to make it on his own in a white school, he doesn't fit in either school.
Try the whole series: Pretties, Specials, and Extras. They’re all great. One of the best series I’ve ever read. I mean it, I keep thinking about the hoverboarding and the Specials. “I don’t want to hurt you, but I will if I have to.” Coraline by Neil Gaiman I have trouble getting through a Gaiman book. He has awesome ideas, but I often find myself losing interest. Not so with this book. It held me captive till the bitter end. Also, it’s much much better than the movie version. Read this first.
A series as good as Uglies. What Westerfeld’s done that I haven’t seen elsewhere is create machines out of genetically altered animals. He has lizards that deliver messages like talking telegrams. Fabricated elephants pull carts through London. And, the big daddy of them all, the Leviathan—an airship composed of a hydrogen-filled sperm whale.
