If you need a quick, page turning thriller/mystery, this is the book for you. It is full of suspense and not a single page feels unnecessary. It's short, to the point, and will have you on the edge of your seat.
Our main character, Savannah, is kidnapped after a fight with her mother's boyfriend. The story focuses around Savannah trying to escape her kidnapper, with another girl Jenny, who was kidnapped 10 months earlier. The narrator shifts between Savannah, Jenny, Savannah's mom, the boy Savannah has a crush on, and a number of other characters who all bring the perfect perspective at the perfect moment.
2020 has certainly been a heck of a year so far. In the midst of a global pandemic, I decided to leave my Library Director position for an Assistant Director position. It's a little farther from home, but the library, community, salary and room for growth are all bigger and better!
I've been in this new job for almost 3 months and I'm still loving it as much as I did my first week. Starting a public facing job during a pandemic is strange; I've only met a handful of patrons and I've never seen the library truly busy. But it's also given me a chance to get to know the staff really well, and do some collection maintenance.
I love the New Hampshire Library community, and I'm so glad I'm able to continue to be a part of it.
