    FROM THE INTERN #5
    Here Lies the Librarian by Richard Peck
    14-year-old Peewee and big brother Jake try to make their living fixin’ up automobiles in 1914 rural Indiana. Their lives are turned upside down first by a twister that tears up the local graveyard, and then by the arrival of beautiful Irene Ridpath and her charming gal friends who aim to reopen the long-closed, one-room library. Peewee and Jake have their adventures- a neighbor who thinks he still in the civil war, and an auto race at the County Fair. It’s a summer like Peewee has never had before. But the biggest surprise in the book comes at the end of chapter two!
    Richard Peck is a really terrific author who has written many books. He often writes stories about teens from a long time ago, and his stories are often quirky and quite funny. He also wrote The Teacher’s Funeral, which is on the middle school summer reading Long List.
