Over at The Toast, we’re talking about hazy memories of books we read as kids, and crowdsourcing to figure out authors and titles! It’s a lot of fun, and maybe you could help? Here’s my three mystery books:
1. It’s a girl whose mom is dead, and she has, like, a book of leaves that her mom had pressed, and she and her dad move to a new house, and I think her dad marries a new wife with a kid, and the kid destroys the book of leaves.
2. Dystopian underground society, boy is trained from birth to remember strings of numbers, eventually has to, like, use this ability to activate/deactive a weapon? Chilly father figure.
3. This one is NOT Half Magic. It’s a kid who gets sent back to Arthurian times during a field trip, or some such thing, and his mom is too, and she keeps waiting for the cream tea she was promised in the brochure. This one is making me really nuts, so please help.
Reblogging encouraged, because I’m beginning to think I just dreamt up #3.
