Carlson, Caroline  
Very Nearly Honorable League of Pirates #1: Magic Marks the Spot
Ages 8 and up. Hilary has always dreamed of being a pirate. She can tread water for thirty-seven minutes. She can tie knots faster than a fleet of sailors. And she owns a rather pointy sword. But girls are not allowed in the League. Girls belong in finishing school, learning how to faint, waltz, and curtsey. To escape a life of petticoats and politeness, Hilary and her gargoyle friend set out on an adventure that may or may not involve a map without an X, a magical treasure that doesn't exist, a rogue governess, a crew of misfit scallywags, and the most treacherous - and unexpected - villain on the High Seas.

Permutation City
In Permutation City, life is just code: you have been digitized, scanned, and downloaded into a virtual reality program. A Copy of a Copy. Paul Durham keeps making Copies of himself, but his Copies keep changing their minds and shutting themselves down. Maria Deluca is an Autoverse addict, spending every waking minute with the cellular automaton that lives by the mathematical laws of physics. Paul offers to design a seed for Maria that will allow her to indulge in her obsession. There is one catch: she will no longer be able to terminate, bail out, and remove herself. She will never be her flesh-and-blood self again. Is this what she really wants?
