It’s a new school season, and with it comes the excitement of new bookshelves, new shoes, book sales, and stretching our enjoyment of late evenings spent outdoors.  Yeah, we’ve got that on the schedule.  Okay, maybe not the shoes….

Stump the Bookseller  Selection of the month

Description: Description: Description: Description: stump.jpgG675: Girl befriends a girl who's accused of being a witch and has a bedroom in a barn
The book was about a girl who befriended another girl who I think was a new girl in her class at school. The new girl had very long straight black hair and was teased by the other kids at school who I think called her a witch. One day while at school the new girl was somehow injured and then the girl who had befriended her went to visit her at her home. She found the black-haired girl in bed with a her head bandaged and I think she might have been delirious as well. The black-haired girl had an unusual bedroom in that the family had turned their barn into a bedroom for her and it had a big skylight. I think the black-haired girl lived with her single mother and the single mother's parents. They may have been Native Americans. She had a large custom-made doll house that was very tall. The book was illustrated and I specifically recall and illustration of this girl's bedroom in the barn and the skylight open to the night sky with stars.
