Ship Of Magic

Hobb, Robin
Book one in the Liveship Traders trilogy. Pretty good, a bit more "racy" than the previous three books I read.




Hobbs, Valerie
An Australian Shepard pup gets sold to a pet store, gets bounced around in life until he find his "sheep". A CYRM winner.



Crossing the wire

Hobbs, Will
Victor and Rico cross the border from Mexico to the United States seeking work. A very realistic adventure, showing the many dangers the illegal immigrants face.



King Leopold's Ghost

Hochschild, Adam
Non fiction story of "greed, terror, and heroism in colonial Africa".



Smilla's Sense Of Snow

Hoeg, Peter
Danish mystery story. Pretty good, a little wordy. Says it was made into a movie.


"I hate lies," I say. "If any lying has to be done, I'll do it myself."



Minn of the Mississippi

Holling, Holling C.
A natural history story of a snapping turtle's journey from the headwaters of the Mississippi River to the Gulf Of Mexico, profusely ilustrated by the author.



Sunny Side Up

Holm, Jennifer L.
With Matthew Holm. Sunny's family cancels their fabulous summer plans and send her to stay with her grandfather in Florida. A graphic novel. Pretty good!



Turtle In Paradise

Holm, Jennifer L.
Turtle, an eleven-year-old girl, is sent by her mother to stay with her aunt who lives in Key West. Takes place in 1935, so everyone is poor. Except for the people her mother is a housekeeper for. Good story, no magical ending, though.



Slake's Limbo

Holman, Felice
Teen boy Aremis Slake runs away from his awful life to live in the New York subway. Pretty good book!

Words I Had To Look Up:

...he turned up such a surprising amount of trash, truck, and treasure... (pg. 62) -- Worthless goods; stuff or rubbish. I remember this word from my elementary school reader, and I've always like it!



Operation YES

Holmes, Sara Lewis
Bo's dad is commander of an Air Force Base. His new sixth-grade teacher teaches the class improv. His cousin Gari comes to live with them when her mother is sent to the middle east. Good story. How come whenever there is a kid who dad is in the military, dad is the commander of the base?


Oh, Winn-Dixie, thought Miss Candy. We're in for it now. (pg. 147)



Holt Anthology Of Science Fiction

Holt, Holt
Stories by authors such as Simak, Yolen, Le Guin, and even Robert Louis Stevenson.



When Zachary Beaver Came To Town

Holt, Kimberly Willis
Toby and Cal visit "The Fattest Boy In The World" when he is stuck in their small Texas town.



Claudette Colvin : Twice Toward Justice

Hoose, Phillip
Before Rosa Parks, there was Claudette Colvin, a teen in Montgomery, Alabama, who wouldn't give up her bus seat to a white person.



Courage & Defiance

Hopkinson, Deborah
Non-fiction about the resistance in Denmark during WWII against the German occupation.



Pemrose Lorry, Radio Amateur

Hornibrook, Isabel
A Project Gutenberg e-book, a group of Campfire Girls go on a camping trip. Mysterious things happen. Horses are ridden. Fires are put out. Radio stuff comes into play. VERY flowery language, but then it's a from 1923.


"Then--be a dear boy and do this for me," Pemrose looked up at him, sidelong, coaxingly; "loop this aerial around that tree." -- Is that a pun?



Dead Men Tell No Tales

Hornung, E. W.
Guy goes on a sea cruise, is only survivor of the fire/sinking, then things get weird.

Quote: he threw away the cigarette that I am tired of mentioning, and put the last touch to a fresh one with his tongue.



Mr. Justice Raffles

Hornung, E. W.
I rather like these stories of Raffles the gentleman thief. Of course I started with the last book first!



Raffles, Further Adventures of the Amateur Cracksman

Hornung, E. W.
I believe this is book two of the series. I read the Project Gutenberg EBook edition. Good crime stories, lots of words to look up!



The Amateur Cracksman

Hornung, E. W.
More Raffles stories, this is the first book.



Magpie Murders

Horowitz, Anthony
A book within a book, or outside it, or something. Two books, with various murders, or not murders, intertwined. Very good, I though.
