Here Lies the Librarian Book Review

Here Lies the Librarian - Richard Peck

This is a bizarre little book and I think the title is very misleading. It has very little to do with librarians and the library but much more about a young girl wanting to be like her older brother.


Peewee has always wanted to be just like her older brother Jack. So much so that people sometimes mistake her as a boy. They run their own auto garage and are ready to become mechanics. Then the new librarian comes to town and their lives are forever changed.


Overall opinion of the storyline? I was bored. Nothing much happened in this short, not even 200 page book. The characters are fairly quirky and the only thing going for Richard Peck. But the rest isn't very interesting as there is hardly any conflict or drama going on.
