I am going to keep a list of books to read. This way I won’t forget the title/author of a book I want to read, and have to look it up based on keywords and just hope I happen to bump into it.

To start: Rules by Cynthia Lord. Why: It’s about a girl whose brother has autism. The Same Difference by Deborah Lynn Jacobs Why: It’s about a girl whose twin has autism. Tantalize by Cynthia Leitich Smith Why: It’s a gothic YA fantasy that appeals to the Buffy audience. The Phoenix Dance by Dia Calhoun Why: It’s a fantasy novel with a protagonist who has bipolar illness. The Percy Jackson and the Olympians Series - ancient mythology!

From the Cybils: The Bartimaeus Series by Jonathan Stroud Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan
