Historical genre noted and "Sons" matches. The genre childrens is present- you would need to check Accelerated Reader BookFinder and include the scores.

Yes, Books that have an IL designation of MG+ or UG may be used with no restrictions. However, you must state the IL designation when you post the book.

Excellent book if you like fantasy and don't mind it with a slightly disturbing edge. One of my favorite reads from that year.

Genre noted.
And the name works.

Book Concierge (tessabookconcierge) | 3766 comments QUESTION ... for Book 2 you state: The word must match exactly, no variations.

Does this mean that I could use One Plus One .. since the word "one" is found in The Loading Zone?

Or would I need to match the word "ZONE" entirely?

If you are using the word Zone, then Zone - matching exactly without variation - must be found in the title, subtitle or author's name.

Cat (cat_uk) | 2403 comments Can the initials be used? e.g. P. D. James be Ok as her first initial matches P. F. Sloan? (ETA - I guess not, because an initial isn't a word, but double-checking!)

How about the 5th? Does that have to be 5th or is Fifth acceptable?
I assume that 5 (or five) are NOT acceptable! And similarly, that "merry-go-round" can't be broken up.

Since the target is P.^F.^Sloan the initial P.^ (with a space) or the initial F.^ (with a space) would work. P.D. James does not have a space. P.D. James.
F. Scott Fitzgerald would work.

5th must match exactly and it must appear as 5th in the Goddreads record title. The 5th Horseman. Fifth, 5, five would not work.

"merry-go-round" must be used complete, it can't be broken into parts.

Thanks! (I hadn't actually checked how PD James was presented in GRs - was an example out of my head!)
