Okay, I need a good, realistic fiction book with at least 150 pages. I don't have much time to read it, so, yeah. And you can ask for recomendations here also.

Being serious, I'm not sure what to recommend. You said you wanted something realistic but it would help if you said what Genres you like

How realistic does it have to be?

Blurb -
When Lister got drunk, he really got drunk.
"After celebrating his birthday with a Monopoly-board pub crawl around London, he came to in a burger bar on one of Saturn's moon(Titan), wearing a ladies pink crimplene hat, a pair of yellow fishing waders, with no money and a passport in the name of 'Emily Berkenstein'.

Joining the Space Corps seemed a good idea. Red Dwarf, a gigantic red trash can that doubled as a mining ship, was bound for Earth. It never made it, leaving Lister as the last remaining human, three million years from Earth, with only a dead man, a senile computer and a highly evolved cat for company.

They begin their journey home. On the way they'll break the Light Barrier. They'll meet Einstein, Archimedes, God and Norman Wisdom.... and discover an alternative plane of reality.

Only £1.89 on play.com (about $3) and is one of my favorite series of books, this being the first.

Seems like everyone completely skipped the line where he said it has to be realistic (which is odd since it was the first line, haha). Pretty sure Eragon and Red Dwarf are not realistic, unless you are from another dimension, and if so, can I come over?

Well, I wasn't going to say it, but...

(Nah, I have no idea what Chocolate Wars is, so I didn't figure it in to my statement. It seemed from the title that it might be some sort of fantasy though.)

Hey who's to say that what happens in Red Dwarf could not happen in the future, I just thought he didn't want anything that was fantasy such as Lord of the Rings, Red Dwarf is sci-fi but is based on the world we live in and has characters and places from the real world so I thought it would count. Its a great book anyway so just read it ok :)

Haha, nice save, Stevie. It's a school assignment, so I think it's safe to assume the teacher did not include sci-fi under the scope of realism. I got that book as a gift but haven't read it. It's under a pile of a million other books I doubt I'll ever get to, sadly.

How about the Ramona series of books? Sure they're aimed at kids but they hold up very well and are realistic (I dare you to not identify someone with the stuff Ramona pulls) in how a 7-8 year old deals with family. They're also quick reads.

I am the one you despise. I am he who says what you really deep down know but are affraid to admit. I am the Anti-Fanboy, the crusader of truth in a world built on your lies.

Maybe you could write a realistic fiction book that's 150 pages then read it.
I bet you could read any as long as you have a good explination as to how its realistic.

Realistic, huh? I'm sorry, X, I can't think of any recommendations. :(
