Oooh, so many good ones there, Anna! I used to LOVE "Face on the Milk Carton." It fascinated me and creeped me out at the same time.

I read quite a bit of Nancy Drew & the Hardy Boys, but I don't remember the specific titles. When I went trough the books I'd left at my Mom's house I found my copy of Charlotte's Web, by E.B White. It was my first hardcover book, and I remember how proud I was to get it.

What a wonderful book list. I recognize several of those and I remember reading the Bruno & Boots books more than once. Gordan Korman was one of my favourite authours when I was young.

Åh, John Marsden! Upptäckte jag inte förrän i vuxen ålder, dock. Förutom Ethel Turner och alla deckare (Mary, Lou, Kitty och Hitchcock) hade jag inte hört talas om någon av böckerna!! :-o
