The cover was black and had a yellow smile face, I think there was fangs and it had blood on the fangs.

So the boyfriend ends up dead with a purple lipstick mark on his cheek and everyone thinks it's the main girl. She fights to prove she's innocent and shows the other girl was keeping her purple lipstick blotches napkins in a drawer and convinced people she used the napkin to frame her. The other girl ends up in a psych ward, main girl ends up with her male best friend and confesses she truly did murder her boyfriend and framed the other girl. In the 's or early 's I read a book about a teenage girl who lives with her single mother and younger sister. Both the mother and sister seems to look to the teenage girl to take care of them emotionally.
The teenage girl meets a boy and develops a relationship while the younger sister is promiscuous and ends up pregnant. The younger sister lies about how far along she is so a nice boy thinks it's his and married her.

It is about reincarnation with an actress and writer discovering they had lived and loved in another lifetime. Others from this past life have also been reincarnated and are now closely involved in their current lives as well. I don't recall all details, but seem to remember the actress's mother in the past interfering in her life and manipulates people and events until she ultimately and accidentally kills her daughter I read this book back in the 70's, so it is rather old.
I can't remember the title or author. I read this book back in the 90s. The book is about an English woman who inherits a mansion but only if she goes on a quest to return a dragon egg within 1 years time. The woman was a teacher in London. When she leaves on the quest, she takes a street-wise London boy with her.
The egg is from the union of a dragon and human woman and is watched over and accompanied by an oriental unicorn creature. I think it was called a Ki-lin or Ky-rin maybe Qylin, not sure. The creature starts off as a small statue and he can shrink to tiny size or grow to the size of a horse. And he never harms anything, not even a blade of grass. At the end of the book, the woman returns home to open an orphanage.
When the egg hatches, there are twins inside. A perfect little dragon and a human baby. My friend thinks there might be a fox in the story also. I'm searching for a book that I was assigned to read for a college class in or It probably fits under the category of Intermediate Reader or possibly YA.

Relatives come to stay with the girl's family and she is not happy about it because the female cousin is spoiled and tries to get her in trouble. The girl likes to go out sailing in her sailboat. One night she is out in her sailboat with her friend and it is foggy and they hear another boat nearby and they hear voices and the sound of a body being thrown overboard.
When the boat leaves, the girl and her friend retrieve the body from the water and bring it back to shore. The body turns out to be a Japanese man and they hide him and nurse him back to health. The would-be murderers of the Japanese man discover that he is still alive and chase the girl and her friend and cousin and the Japanese man across Puget Sound in their sailboats to Friday Harbor. It is an intense chase. Wish I could remember more of the book.

It's about a person that work in one of London airport. It was large and thin. The one I had was hardcover with a removable paper cover. It was a collection of short scary stories that had unique artwork.

I'm looking for a children's book 4th, 5th grade where the main character is a boy who lives in a room in a hotel that his father manages.
The curse went along the lines of "when this lump of peat burns away, the child will die and go to clay". There were other stories as well like the one about an australian aboriginal medicine man warning a construction crew against building a road through a cursed thicket of trees, of course tragedy strikes and the road is built around the trees in the end, also one about a tree in africa that was known to the locals to strangle anyone who wandered to close at night.
Another with a mummified cat being taken from a tomb only for its spirit to escape its binds through a hole in its throat shocking the collector that brought it along. Another with a boy somewhere in england disappearing seemingly into thin air atop a hill when he was going to milk the cows or something, but his parents and the locals could hear his disembodied voice crying out for help over the following weeks until finally it fades away entirely. There were also 2 stories about ufo's that i can remember involving one plane being slammed into the ground by what seemed like an invisible hand, and another where some airmen keeping watch over a plane graveyard when the ufo appears and one of them decides to hop into a still functional ww2 plane to chase it only to nearly "ram himself up its tailpipe" when it suddenly stops.
It even had a variation of the girl with the ribbon around her neck that involved an artist who couldn't get enough of painting her portrait. The cover of the book was a mix of red and purple color with illustrations of at least 3 of these stories, ribbon girl, medicine, and mummy cat in a sort of collage. I forgot if it involved the term "ghost stories" or "spine chilling" or anything of the sort, there were at least 10 stories that i can remember but i'm pretty sure there were 13 altogether. It was a really fun read and my copy was so old it ended up deteriorating almost completely and my mother apparently threw it out.

This is so far fetched, but hopefully someone knows what I'm talking about. There is a group of kids in the middle of nowhere and they have to fend for themselves.

I'm pretty sure him and the girl had something going on Anyways, I remember there was a part where they went underground and there was this giant worm or snake or something that was living underground.
That's all I remember. That's it. Searching for a chapter book I used to read as a young girl in elementary school. I would say anywhere between the years of I vaguely remember the cover of the book picturing a young blonde girl in the foreground, holding a book or notebook of some sort. If I recall correctly she had about shoulder length hair with bangs and a headband on. On the cover it looks as though she is in the woods and she is begrudgingly looking back at what looks like a wooden clubhouse.
In this clubhouse I believe can't remember if this is what was actually on the cover or just my imagination there are two girls looking out the window at her. One I think is African-American and the other is a red head. I think the story revolves around the blonde girl and her connection to the clubhouse. I believe her grandfather built it and she used to have tea parties in there and basically go there as her escape from the rest of the world.
I also vaguely remember something about a key? Thanks in advanced if you have any info pertaining to this long, lost book!

More juvenile though. I think probably from the early s. Part of a series I think, no author that I can remember and unsure of the publishing house. So very helpful of me! There was some dangerous older characters they would come across that were up to no good, one was a thief and a murderer.
So when the kids discover his crime, he chases them through the tunnels, as they try to get away and find help.
