BLURB: In a slightly fantastical New York City, one very special library branch has been designated for possible closure. Bookish, socially awkward Pearl, the daughter of the librarian, can't imagine a world without the library—its books, its community of oddballs, its hominess. When the head of their Edna St. Vincent Millay statue goes missing, closure is closer than ever. But Pearl is determined to save the library. And with a ragtag neighborhood library crew—including a constantly tap-dancing girl who might just be her first friend, an older boy she has a crush on, and a pack of raccoons who can read and write—she just might be able to.
Age Range: 9-12 years

I don't know but I loved it.
It is said that a village is needed to raise a child, well what do you think of a library? In this beautiful story about a girl, the librarian's daughter, and where we are in a world that points strongly towards globalization maybe we lost some things, we here recover the sense of love of a small community that represents a family, about friendship, facing together and with imagination to the difficulties, and besides, of course how our little world can be much bigger thanks to the books.
Pearl is a complicated , bookish, precocius girl, and the Lancaster Library is all her world. She never thought something will change. Well, sometimes the change come with a bang, or with a inconcebible act that led to more changes, not all bad.
