okay, i know i'm new but i thought i could 'mingle' (though i don't know if thats possible on the internet) by posting a new thread, here goes!!
My favourite book is Jacoby's Game - Alison Prince. It is about a girl who, well here's the review:
As Tiggy lies in hospital after a terrible accident, her mind wanders. Reunited with her beloved cat, Jacoby, she explores past and present in a game of Jacoby's devising. Tiggy can go where she wants to go, be who she wants to be. It's not as comfortable as she had thought it would be. Tiggy is an angry and frustrated person who feels desperately unloved and unwanted. Her mother is distracted, grieving over the death of her husband and Tiggy's hated stepfather, Philip. Philip is the man who took Jacoby away from Tig and had him put down. In the game, no matter how hard she tries to escape him and to find a better place, Philip just won't go away. Only Jacoby is unperturbed.
It sounds bad, i know, but i was hooked! Secondly is probably
Jane Eyre, again - hooked!
