Summary A debut novel about the unlikely friendship between a middle-aged woman trying to start over and an intelligent, unusual teenage girl that blossoms when she's assigned community service in her local library
For head librarian Kit, the public library in Riverton, New Hampshire, offers what she craves most: peace. When fifteen-year-old, home-schooled Sunny gets arrested for shoplifting a dictionary she is assigned to community service at the library for the summer. Eager to connect with someone other than her off-the-grid hippie parents, Sunny coaxes Kit out of her self-imposed isolation. They're joined by Rusty, a Wall Street high-flyer suddenly crashed to earth. As the three come to terms with how their lives have unraveled, they also discover how they might knit them together again and finally reclaim their stories.
