185 I've read this, and for the life of me I thought it was Thomas Monteleone, but I can't seem to find it again.
185 Hunter In The Dark had a boy with leukemia who ran away to camp in the Canadian wilderness.

185 For manga:

Yotsuba&!, Vol. 01. Very easy to get into for non-manga fans, no objectionable content, often hilarious. Intro to 4-koma style manga.

Assassination Classroom (暗殺教室) 1 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu vol. 1 . Good introduction to "shonen jump" style manga, has a very YA feel to it while being easy to get into.

Vampire Knight, Vol. 01. Intro to shoujo manga, if you can stomach twilight you'll like this.

Astro Boy, Vol. 1/Princess Knight, Vol. 01 introduction to the God of Manga, Ozamu Tezuka. Classics, in a way close to Tintin in terms of style.
185 Did you watch this on a legit site like Hulu or Crunchyroll? Or on DVD? That might narrow it down. I can't think of too many time travel anime with male protagonists: Stein's Gate and Blast of Tempest come to mind, but any more information may be helpful.
185 Happy Christmas-time victory

Star Wind might be the book. Wiki on it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Star_Wind

"I think I figured out most of it. But what's Hitchcock?"

"Hitchcock? You know that red stuff in all the scary movies that's supposed to look like blood..."
185 Among the Hidden or another of the Shadow Children books by Margaret Haddix sounds like this.
185 If you're into manga, an excellent one with this theme is Please Save My Earth, Volume 1
185 You're welcome. Interesting tidbit; there's actually a real computer game based on that book, called Companions of Xanth. If you are into old pc adventure games, it might be floating around the net somewhere.
185 This is Piers Anthony's Xanth series, Demons Don't Dream.
185 Don't know the book, but the idea of children on an island like that is from the philosopher John Locke, from his Essay on Human Understanding:

This is all could be inferred from the notion of a God, were it to be found universally in all the tribes of mankind, and generally acknowledged, by men grown to maturity in all countries. For the generality of the acknowledging of a God, as I imagine, is extended no further than that; which, if it be sufficient to prove the idea of God innate, will as well prove the idea of fire innate; since I think it may be truly said, that there is not a person in the world who has a notion of a God, who has not also the idea of fire. I doubt not but if a colony of young children should be placed in an island where no fire was, they would certainly neither have any notion of such a thing, nor name for it, how generally soever it were received and known in all the world besides; and perhaps too their apprehensions would be as far removed from any name, or notion, of a God, till some one amongst them had employed his thoughts to inquire into the constitution and causes of things, which would easily lead him to the notion of a God; which having once taught to others, reason, and the natural propensity of their own thoughts, would afterwards propagate, and continue amongst them.

This might help locate the book.

185 No, definitely not twenty and ten. You can let it lapse.

185 Space Skimmer has this line, too:

...you did nothing to make yourself free-
so slaves you'll remain for all your days-
only now, the monster is me!
185 This is a Jack Chalker book. I don't know which one, but the main character getting affected is one of his books. eidt: might be too science fiction and too old for this, but he's very much about this kind of mind control.

185 Not sure at all, but glen cook's Garret P.I. Series came to mind reading this post.
185 There were the heartquest books that featured a female protagonist with romance elements too, that you could try.
185 Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman Star of the Guardians might be it.
185 This is by Gregory Maguire, seven spiders spinning.

185 It was from the bio. He didn't use his title in the book's name.

You sparked a memory asking this, and I found the book! I suddenly remembered it was a Lutheran pastor, searched the web, and found it. It wasn't a bird-related title as I thought. It's Dragonfly by Frederic S. Durbin.
185 The main character isn't a fairy, but could it be AMETHYST Princess of Gemworld, #1?
