The Ghost and the Goth by Stacey Kade

Reading Level: Grades 6 - 8

Alona Dare is a "first tier" high school girl. She is the leader of the popular crowd, a cheerleader, the girl all the other girls want to be and the boys want to date. Then she gets hit by a bus and becomes a ghost seemingly doomed to haunt the school. To make matters worse she discovers that the only person who can see and hear her is the school's biggest loser, Will Killian. Will dresses in black, always looks at the floor, and has been diagnosed as schizophrenic because he sees and hears things nobody else does.

The Adventures of Nanny Piggins by R.A. Spratt

Reading Level: Grades 3 - 5

The Green children are nanny repelling specialists. They have driven away every person who has responded to their father's "Nanny Wanted" sign. Their father is so desperate that when a well-dressed pig inquires about the sign, he hires her on the spot.

This is not a story of naughty children taught to be good by a firm but fun nanny. After all this nanny is a pig who knows nothing of manners, bedtimes or the importance of homework. As a matter of fact, this chocolate loving nanny has to be talked out of some of her wilder ideas by her delighted charges.

Other stories of unconventional nannies include: Mary Poppins by P.L. Travers and Nurse Matilda: The Collected Tales by Christianna Brand
