Here Lies the Librarian by Richard Peck
The Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Konigsburg
This one was highly recommended by two friends, so I would be a fool not to read it!
Mr. Popper's Penguins by Richard and Florence Atwater
The book is always better than the movie, right?
Lastly, one of my favorite authors Jerry Spinelli's Maniac Magee
You're never too old for a good book. As Dr. Seuss said, "The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go."
