Summer Hours at the Robbers Library
For head librarian Kit, the public library in Riverton, New Hampshire, offers what she craves most: peace. Here, no one expects Kit to talk about the calamitous events that catapulted her out of what she thought was a settled, suburban life. Everything changes when 15-year-old Sunny gets arrested for shoplifting. The judge assigns Sunny to do community service at the library for the summer. Sunny, along with former Wall Street high-flyer Rusty, try to coax Kit out of her self-imposed isolation. An observant and unforgettable tale of family and friends from the author of The Book of Hard Things (2003).
