Book Review: Steinbeck's Ghost

TitleSteinbeck's Ghost
AuthorLewis Buzbee
Tagsbooks, libraries, john steinbeck, young adult

How could I not love a book that is about a love of reading, and about the transformative effect libraries can have on people's lives. I also have to love a book that opens with referring to Madeleine L'Engle's Wrinkle in Time. Along the way there is a lot of great information about Steinbeck, whom I must admit I've never read, and about Salinas, California and the area near that. It is a story about friendship, about parents, and, in the end, about magick. Recommended, especially for teenagers.
