To the Reader
When my family moved from St. Louis to the Appalachian region when I was coming- of-age, I was devastated that the public library was not within walking distance of our new home. And then, I discovered something called a bookmobile. Every week, as I anticipated its arrival in our small town, my imagination soared. I can close my eyes and hear the hum from its engine as it approached the top of the steep hill, smell the intoxicating ink on the pages of the books, and taste the peppermint candy that the librarian handed to each of us as we exited with our treasures. Its magic will remain with me forever.





Chapter 1
W hat did you say?” Sophie Hunter asked as her mother filled and taped the last box of books from Sophie’s room. She labeled it SH: BOOKS with a hunter green marker, Sophie’s favorite color. Sophie stopped in her tracks, frozen as if she had just been hypnotized; she refused to believe not only what her mother had said, but that it had any truth to it at all. It reminded her of the time her best friend, Pepper (who called Sophie “Salt” all the time), told her that her new best friend was a boy. A boy?! Sophie couldn’t believe what Pepper had said, any more than she could believe what she thought she had just heard her mother say.
