The silver chair

Lewis, C. S.
Eustace and Jill go to Narnia to rescue Prince Rilian.



Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Lewis, C. S.
All the kids plus Eustace sail to the end of the world. Read again.



Secrets, Lies & Algebra

Lichtman, Wendy
Tess is thirteen and loves math. She uses mathematics to try to understand relationships.
I enjoyed the story, but I thought the suicide/suspected murder might be a bit morbid, but it is nicely concluded in a meaningful way.



Facing The Lion

Liebster, Simone Arnold
Memoirs of a young girl in Nazi Europe. Simone is a Jehovah's Witness and this story tells of her (and her family's) persecution. Maps, appendices, indes. Interesting story. She certainly was a devote little girl!



Darkly Dreaming Dexter

Lindsay, Jeff
The first Dexter book. Someone is murdering prostitutes in a flamboyant manner. Dexter admires his technique.



Dexter In The Dark

Lindsay, Jeff
This is my first Dexter book, the third in the series, I think. Probably not the best place to start. Dexter is getting married, with children. If Moloch is a real being, wouldn't the Christian god be a real being too?



Dexter Is Delicious

Lindsay, Jeff
Dexter runs afoul of some cannibals. Rather gruesome!



Antarctic Tears

Linsdau, Aaron
Very good story of the author's solo expedition to the South Pole. Lots of problems came up, and the author explain how he solved them. I met the author once, so when I saw this book on Amazon I ordered it. The hardback copy, no less!



Black Duck

Lisle, Janet Taylor
Exciting adventures of a Rhode Island boy during Prohibition, as told by an old man to a budding teen journalist. Very good!



The Healing Spell

Little, Kimberley Griffiths
Livie's mother is in a coma. No one else knows that it is Livie's fault. Enjoyable little story, but not sure of the ending. Finished painting? Really? Oh, and how does a 22 turn into a shotgun? Just quibbles, mind you, I liked the story. UPDATE: A correspondence with the author clears up the confusion I had. There is a shot ammunition for the 22.



The Time Of The Fireflies

Little, Kimberley Griffiths
A young girl lives in Louisiana, in the family's antique store/house. Her mother's family has a history of awful things happening to them. Then there are the phones. And that doll... Good story, almost couldn't put it down, but I had visitors from out-of-state!



Frog And Toad Are Friends

Lobel, Arnold
Referred to many times in the CYRM nominee "Rules", so I read it!



Kay Everett Works DX

Lobsenz, Amelia
I enjoyed reading this story of a teen ham radio who tracks down some spies in her town. Very nostalgic ham radio fiction reminding me of my youth!


Kay had a sudden realization that it is the familiar we each love, but it is a mistake to think that just because a place is familiar to us it is necessarily the nicest--or pleasantest--in the whole world. Or the only place to live. Page 128-129.



The Boy Book

Lockhart, E.
Ruby Oliver is a Junior at Tate Prep in Seattle. Pretty good, could have done without the "F" word a couple of times, and the "dick" episode.



The Disreputable History Of Frankie Landau-Banks

Lockhart, E.
Frankie attends Alabaster Preparatory Academy. She meets a hunky guy, Matthew, who seems to be involved in a secret society, the Loyal Order Of Basset Hounds. You gotta love a girl who appreciates Wodehouse! I rate this five stars.



The Sea Wolf

London, Jack
Very readable story for a very old book. Guy falls in water when ferry sinks, gets picked up by a seal-hunting ship, forced to join the crew under the tyrannical captain. By the end of the book he is quite the seaman.



The Wall

Long, Jeff
SPOILER:Crazed chick wall-rat possessed by the spirit of a woman with Altzheimer's disease who was left to die in the Arabian desert (I think it was the Empty Quarter) cuts the rope of the woman's husband while climbing El Capitan in Yosemite. He dies.

The climbing technical stuff was interesting, the story, though, just kinda built into something weird.

Words I Had To Look Up:

Ayurvedic (pg. 87) medicine is the most ancient of the six recognized Indian Systems of Medicine to the Indian subcontinent. From the Wikipedia article.




Lord, Cynthia
"No toys in the fish tank" is one of the rules Catherine makes for her autistic brother to follow to get along in life.




Lott, Tim
Little Fearless is in some kind of juvenile hall/prison after she is taken away from her mother. A kind of 1984 sort of story. Good story, but the resolution kind of happens REALLY quickly!



Fly-fishing For Sharks

Louv, Richard
San Diego Onion Tribunal columnist writes about his love, fly fishing. Meet all sorts of interesting people around the U.S. I personally think fishing is more boring than watching grass grow, but I enjoyed this book very much. .
