Book Rave Contendor 2012 – Okay for Now

This kid likes the library, what else do you need? Book Rave voting begins December 15th, but start lobbying with your comments if you like Gary Schmidt’s newest.

Enjoy the blurb:

As a fourteen-year-old who just moved to a new town, with no friends, an abusive father, and a louse for an older brother, Doug Swieteck has all the stats stacked against him until he finds an ally in Lil Spicer–a fiery young lady. Together, they find a safe haven in the local library, inspiration in learning about the plates of John James Audubon’s birds, and a hilarious adventure on a Broadway stage.
