My friends, this isn't a list. I've been dealing with a nasty mix of pneumonia & asthma for two weeks now, and just haven't been up to doing much of anything. My apologies.
Baen.com . I'm specifically linking to their Recommended Young Adult Reading List. Mind you, some of these are favorites of mine, and I first encountered them as an adult. I think the Young Adult label is primarily because they're "safe" when it comes to relationships between the genders.
Note: my other favorite section of the Baen website is the Baen Free Library. That's right, free, downloadable (in any format) full-length books that you'd otherwise have to pay for. They're usually the first in a series, so that you can have a nice taste to see if you're going to want / need to read the rest. Enjoy!
And now, back to the couch. My kleenex and breathing machine miss me.
Love to you all,
