Beverly Cleary and Judy Blume? Were we separated at birth??? I actually wrote Mrs. Cleary a letter when I was seven and she sent me back a personalized postcard. I was a major fan.

As for novels, I was going to recomment "Pride and Prejudice," but you already got to that one. Here are some suggestions:

1. "Sense and Sensibility," by Jane Austen
2. "Pollyanna," by Eleanor Porter
3. "Presumed Innocent," by Scott Turow
4. "The Scarlet Letter," by Nathaniel Hawthorne
5. "To Kill A Mockingbird," by Harper Lee

Also, I don't know if you read the works of Maud Hart Lovelace when you were growing up, but I loved the "Betsy-Tacy" books and read them to this day, under the guise of reading them to my girls. With a household of boys, you don't have that "cover," but I think you'd enjoy the books anyway if you haven't already. :)
