Gotta say Harry Potter, hands down. It's the coolest book series ever.

hunter s thompsons book on when he went to report on the cuntucky derby in the early 70s but got so drugged up with his lawyer that it bacomes a work of fiction with some bits. its also a political look at the treatment of drugs politics and authorities of the times. and the early 70s itself.

I have to concur with Harry Potter but I also love the His Dark Materials and Sally Lockhart series by Philip Pullman, and the Cazalet Cronicles by Elizabeth Jane Howard, which has a charater in who I think must have dyspraxia. However my all time favourite book if I had to choose is Pride and Prejudice.

I love books full stop! Harry Potter is good but I have to say Jacqueline Wilson has made a pretty good attempt to portray real life. Ceilia Rees,Phillip Pullman ect are great fiction writers.
Dyspraxia is me I would never change that :)
