Publisher's Summary

Tom is a teenager and blends into the background of life. After a row with his dad and facing an unhappy future at the dog food factory, he escapes to the library. Tom unwittingly ends up with a bagful of romance novels and comes under the suspicion of Maggie.

Maggie is a pensioner and has been happily alone for 10 years, at least that's what she tells herself. When Tom comes to her rescue, a friendship develops that could change her life....

They each set out to prove that the library isn't just about books - it's the heart of their community. Together they discover some things are worth fighting for.

A Thoroughly Enjoyable Read!

I loved this book! There characters were so endearing that half way through the book I already knew I would miss them when the book was over. The book made me laugh, made me cry and made me happy. The story of the unexpected friendship between a septuagenarian and a teen aged boy was unique and fun. The way they brought each other what they needed was beautiful to see. If you are looking for an inspiring book, you found it!
