Book Spotlight!

Today’s book spotlight is on Mercury by: Hope Larson.

mercuryTara lives in a rural Canadian town. She’s been homeschooled for two years due to her father’s disappearance and her mother’s mental health. But when her home burns down, her mother is forced to move out and look for work elsewhere and Tara has to go back to school and deal with how everyone seems to have changed since middle school.

Josey lives in the same rural Canadian town two hundred years before Tara was born. She is the daughter of a poor farmer and his eccentric wife and it doesn’t look like things will change for her. But when the handsome stranger Asa Curry shows up at her door with the promise of gold, it looks like her life is going to change for the better. But there’s something dark in Mr. Curry and no one but Josey’s mother can see it.

These two separate stories intertwine to form one tale of mystery, heartbreak, and hope. There are elements of magic and realism that make this graphic novel one you’ll definitely want to check out. To reserve a copy, please go to our new website and fill out a book request form.
