Does anyone have any good book suggestions? :)?
Question: I'm going to the library tomorrow. I need some good book suggestions. Not fantasy and no biographies. Other than that I'm open to anything. I'm a 14 year old girl, by the way. [:

Nice, I liked it. I got a little confused but it's always harder to read something on the computer than on paper. What about "Call of the Ocean" ? I dunno...just a suggestion
I don't know if you have any specifics, but considering you're not clamoring for anything Twilight-esque, it seems like you might like something a little more literary. How about Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe? I've just read it for class and it's a really good story. It's set in Africa and tells the tale of a Nigerian man of the late colonial period (early 1900's I think) and the arrival of the British to the tribe. I don't know if you would consider this fantasy, but the two great classics by George Orwell, Animal Farm and 1984 are good reads. They are depressing but good stories, so that might not be what you want... Oh and second To Kill a Mockingbird if you haven't already read it. A great classic by Harper Lee.
My favorite is Baker's Celtic Calligraphy Manual. I have included info on that book as well as others that I have found useful. All of these books (plus dozens more) can be purchased through Dover Publications at great prices. I have included the link for you.

I would recommend reading The Lightning Thief or start the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. Almost all of Anthony Horowitz's books are really good. The series is fiction, but is a page turner. The series books go in the following order: Stormbreaker Point Blank Skeleton Key Eagle Strike Scorpia Ark Angel Snakehead Crocodile Tears
It has potential. I'll correct some errors just to ease the job of the dude who has to proofread this. I know the summary probably was hastily written, but I'm guessing it partly reflects your writing. Capitalize proper nouns. "Poor helen" >>> "Poor Helen." You cannot have a space after "...". Also, don't re-capitalize the phrase after it. Make sure to properly use commas. "One day while helen was looking out the window of her classroom she saw a guy she never met before" >>> "One day while Helen was looking out of the window of her classroom, she saw a guy [that] she never met before" imbarks >>> embarks Make sure to put apostrophes in your contraptions! Its >> It's Anyway, title? That's always harder than actually writing the book. I'll just throw out a few options that you'll probably never even consider. Through the Window Lover's Dilemma To Love Take the Chance? How to start the book? Hmm...this is also tough. There are many methods to start a book. They range from questions, to starting something without an explanation, to explaining the situation at the beginning of the book. Of course you're not going to use "once upon a time." That's used for poor fairy tales and second-grade one-page stories. I usually jump right into something without even explaining it. This intrigues the reader. Once you have them hooked in, you take a step back and explain what's going on. Example: Lying in her bed, Helen fantasized about the boy she had gazed at just the day before. It seemed as if she had known him for years. His short, wavy hair, bright, blue eyes, and smile that makes one want to hug him. (You would then proceed to explain how Helen had seen him through the window of her classroom, and then continue with the story.)
