My favorite was Bruiser, but I also read A Spy in the House and The Hunchback Assignments.

Susan | 33 comments I still need to read A Spy in the House, but I enjoyed the other two. Bruiser is one that gets a person thinking.

Yeah- I really like Neal Shusterman. He has such great range, too. My favorites by him are Unwind, The Schwa Was Here, and Bruiser, all of which are completely different types of books.

Susan | 33 comments Unwind was gripping, and I also enjoyed The Schwa Was Here. I just checked out A Spy in the House today.

Lauren | 3 comments My Goal is to read all the YA nominees before voting ends in April. So far I have enjoyed The Wide Awake Princess, Three Rivers Rising, The Boy Who Dared, and Heist Society. I adored Dragonfly and After Ever After, and I thought Spy in the House was ok. I wasn't impressed with Mirrorscape. I also really liked The War to End All Wars: World War I, which I couldn't resist picking up and checking out.


Britt, Book Habitue (Britt--BookHabitue) | 153 comments LOVED The Wide Awake Princess. The Dancing Pancake was cute. Just started Spy in the House.


Britt, Book Habitue (Britt--BookHabitue) | 153 comments Out of My Mind was AMAZING.

Susan | 33 comments Who else wishes more books were available in audio versions? I love to listen as I drive and clean the house.

Vicki (dragonshelver) | 35 comments I agree. I was enjoying listening to the Anne of Green Gables Series and it came to a screeching halt, when Anne of The Windy Poplars is not available. Period! I searched on-line and I guess it was never recorded.
