I read about your blog on Verla's Blueboards. Glad to "meet" you there!
I just read "Here Lies the Librarian," by Richard Peck. Peck is amazing at developing strong voice, and this one rings true to the characters and setting:
"Any outrage as big as hiring an librarian was bound to bring everybody out of the woodwork."
Love this book! -- Liana Mahoney
