Stories for Indoor Kids

S. Hoffman
The list author says: "My three younger siblings are athletes, and the last trophy I got was for the season I ruled the T-ball outfield in a dandelion crown. I learned the pathetic way that it really IS possible to miss the ball even if it's on a tee! Quickly (mercifully) labelled a spectator, my appalling lack of hand-eye coordination forced me to perfect my book-eye coordination in an array of sunny, sweaty, and chlorine-scented locations.

These are the books I loved best in middle school, ones that I enjoy rereading as an (air-conditioning loving, workout loathing, sunburn prone hypochondriac) adult."

"String theory, angelic war, extra-human intelligence, portals to parallel worlds, magical objects, souls in animal bodies, a truly tragic love story, steampunk re-imagining, alternate universes, glorious, lovely language. Just read them."

"My world caved in the morning after my 11th birthday when I fully appreciated the fact that my Hogwarts acceptance letter was never going to come. I recall being blindsided by the same hollow existential dread I felt when I got rejected from my first-choice university. Ultimately, things even out: the school I chose (its rival) was Hogwarts with a drinking problem (and I ain't talkin butterbeer)."

"The perfect introduction to necromancers. If you're looking for sluttier, gorier books about necromancers, I happily recommend the Anita Blake series by Laurell K. Hamilton."

"A series about online social networking before it was cool. The character backstories in these make a re-read of Enders Game a million times richer."

"The PLOT, the CRAZY CHARACTERS, the WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING? A great intro to the Earthexplodedhumanitysetsofftofindanotherplanettoplunder genre."
