    go for it ix. If ya'll need copies of Sarah you can get them at Amazon (you can get a used one pretty easily)

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...books&n=507846

    If you all want more information on the author, he has a web page and is very accessible to questions and/or comments (I know, I've e-mailed him a number of time) www.jtleroy.com - lots of cool stuff there outside of Sarah too.
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life, I know you'll be a star in somebody else's eyes... but why... why... why can't it be me?

    I'm going to vote for "Rule of the Bone" because I have access to a copy, and because I read the first few pages on the "look inside" feature on amazon, and it seemed interesting.

    Thanks, all... Well, here's an updated list of votes. Looks like Sarah and Rule of the Bone are in the lead by one. Such a close vote. Well, remember that the voting stops on July 21, 2003 (That may be changed if a book is not in the lead by votes). Check back for updates and the results!

    Change my vote to Sarah.

    Looks like it will be a wrestling match between "Rule of the Bone" and "Sarah", with "Sarah" slamming the metaphorical fist on the table first (but there's still more time to vote, heh heh)

    I still maintain that I will read whatever wins.

    So far "Sarah" and "Rule of the Bone" are the two more interesting reads to me in the list.

    I don't really mind which one it will be but I still vote for "Rule of the Bone".

    We could read "Rule of the Bone" next with "The Bonesetter's Daughter" to follow and then it would be The Summer of Bones for our book club.
