The Lives of Christopher Chant (The Chrestomanci S&hellip by Diana Wynne Jones
Recently ordered this for my nephew who loves it as much as I did (and still do). The best of the Chrestomanci series in my opinion. Christopher struggles with his emerging magic powers, the discovery that he has a few more lives than normal and his complicated and deadly family relationships. I'm a Harry Potter fan but I really think this book has that series beaten for sheer imagination and good writing.
Trust Me, I'm a (Junior) Doctor by Max Pemberton

There are a few comic episodes here but not enough unfortunately to leaven the mediocrity of the rest. I found this to be a superficial read and one which tries a little too hard to be PC. I feel I was misled by some of the other reviews on this page which are rather suspiciously unbalanced for such a unremarkable book.

If you want a real picture of life as a junior doctor, read Michael Foxton's "Bedside Stories."
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee
One of the few truly readable classics. I recently re-read this and was struck again by how poignant and thought-provoking it is as a novel. Scout as a character is sort of a childish "Everywoman" and we see Mayberry through her eyes and very much from her POV. It is a great read at any age.
