  1. I just found your site a few days ago, & I am simply in awe of your 80s knowledge. YOU ROCK! Also, I owe you soooo much for helping me remember You’ve Been Away All Summer. I’ve been trying to remember it for years, and seeing the cover on this site finally helped me remember the title. On a final note, how hilarious is that cover for Fast Times at West Mount High?!?! Why did the author write “West Mount” as two words? Who was getting mounted at that high school? Scandalous! 🙂

    • Thanks! It’s been a lot of hard work – and I’m eternally grateful to websites like abe. which allows you to search the books via subject , publisher and best of all dates! They made my work a lot easier. When I first started I was nabbing names from the ads in the backs of books! I’m glad you’ve found something you were looking for – I haven’t really bumped into a lot of oh I remember that – I actually kept a lot of my childhood books – now, I’m more going – I missed that! – I’d love to check it out. I never noticed the West Mount High cover – That is some lettering goof! I imagine their was a little snickering in the art department over that one. I always thought that the cover with the sneakiest implication under the guise of the squeaky cleanest image was Sweet Valley High’s # 5 – All Night Long! Even the artwork is in wink-wink mode – Jess in a string bikini held by a guy in a sleazy mustache – ahhh… wasn’t the 80’s wonderful?

  2. Wow, a lot of H’s! Funny, I must have read several Isabelle Holland books when I was a teen/pre-teen, yet I never really ‘registered’ her name. I love the ‘Of Love, Death, and other Journeys’ cover.

    • The only one I recall reading is The house in the Woods which was really good. The H authors felt huge it took forever! The I-K authors were easier – but then some of the authors were more popular thereby there stuff easier to find – like Norma Klein and Gordon Korman – although I wish I could’ve found a better copy of Who’s Bugs Potter I remember the apple edition being blue and Bugs ducking around a corner – the drawn guy was a total fox – the first ‘guy’ book I ever read! Was looking in the backs of books and found more authors to flesh out the previous authors and found a particularly goofy cover – Daisy Summerfield’s Style by M.B. Goffstein – just type it into Google images it’s wild!

  3. THANK YOU! I have been seeking those Douglas Hill books for 20 years… but I had forgotten the author’s name and the names of any of the books. Without you, I may never have found them!

  4. Loved the gymnast books by sheila haigh. Also remember enjoying the Charlotte Cheetham books by Barbara Ware Holmes
