OK, sorry I haven't been on in soooooo long, but coincidentally, I was caught up in a GREAT series! Me, some of my friends, and the majority of boys in my class LOVE the Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket. The plots are great, the character outlines are clearly visible, and a lot of things like Lake Lachrymose, you'd never guess that lachrymose is a real word! My librarian at school got to meet Mr. Snicket at a festival-type-thingie and got him to autograph something. She is soooooo lucky! I cannot wait to see if he'll write anything else because I am mystified with those books!!!
