Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For thirteen years Maddie Palmer has sat by the window, never leaving the house, getting the news of the day from her younger brother, Keith. For thirteen years she has buried her memories-of the dark fortress of the Town Library, which casts its long shadow over Pridebridge, and what happened there so long ago.

But when Keith is forced to work in the secret cavern of the library, Maddie must leave her familiar prison behind-or risk losing her brother for good.

Thomas Bloor's first novel, reminiscent of Louis Sachar's Holes and Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle in Time, is at once very funny and strangely poignant, as tantalizing and mysterious as Maddie herself.

Synopsis:

In this mystery story that follows Maddie Palmer and her younger brother, Keith, Maddie won't talk about what happened at the Town Library years ago. But when Keith gets trapped there, she has to be brave and start talking before it's too late.
