@daak1212:  If you want the best answers you might have to be a bit more specific. 
 
X-23: Innocence Lost and Target X explain her life pre-Xavier Institute. 
NYX shows how she lived on the streets. 
New X-Men shows her adjusting to life as a "normal" mutant. 
X-Force shows her in what she does best: fighting and killing. 
X-23 is her newest run and shows her trying to find who she is. 
 
The main thing that I can say is DO NOT try any of her issues in Uncanny X-Men 450-460. 
If you are new to X-23 I would advise trying Target X first then the new series X-23. Target X gives a good background of X-23 before you get into the newer stuff and it has better art then X-23: Innocence Lost and it goes further than Innocence Lost too. 
 
I hope this helps.

NYX was a pretty good story that showed how she lived her life on the streets.

@saturnssailor: I'm reading the current X-23 vol and I fucking love it.  
 
Which vol of new X-men should I get?  Which writer and stuff?

@daak1212: Yeah. The only issue with Childhood's End is that it's out of print. So you can find some of them online, but I think the second part of it is something like 60 bucks for the trade.

@_Whisper_: Wait!!!!! For the first trade of Childhoods End (as in pt1) is 60 bucks!!!!!
 
Feck I might as well finish off Sandman before I mess with that!

@daak1212: The second trade...and I lied. It's 155....

I'd say try the X-23 "Women of Marvel" one-shot for a nice little story with great artwork.  It's honestly what got me into X-23 in the first place. 
HERE's the Comic Vine profile of it.

Yeah, the entire volume. The second trade is so expensive because of what happens in it.

@_Whisper_: WTF happens in it?  Do they actually come to life and fight crime in Detroit or something?!?! What could be that badass!

By any chance do any of you know where I can read comic books online,by buying them then reading the issue? Because I really don't feel in the modd like buying them on AMAZON and waiting like forever. Or going to a store.

@daak1212: Sorry dude...that is part of my reference collection for fanfic writing >,> lolol 
 
Try Amazon, I think I saw a few copies up there for not-so-bad-prices. 
 
http://www.amazon.com/New-X-Men-Childhoods-End-Vol/dp/0785120246
 
$55 there...still pretty expensive but still better than $155...or you could troll through eBay. I can't believe it's so expensive. I swear I've seen it around a few comic places in the midwest (was on a trip in Iowa). Keep your eyes peeled!

was the series good by any chance?
#27 Posted by OldManJoe (90 posts) - - Show Bio

It was very good, but $55 is expensive, even for a good book.

Target X is my personal favorite.
Her stories in Marvel Team-Up were also very enjoyable (actually I loved this whole series, Kirkman never fails to wow me)

Touching the darkness and Misadventures in Babysitting.

@daak1212: If you have the spare change and were still interested in reading up on her, I'd seriously suggest getting a subscription to Marvel comics. It's something like 4.95/month or 59.98/year and you have access to everything in their digital catalog. This includes pretty much everything that X-23 has ever appeared in.
