Poverty, depression, drugs in a small town in the Kentucky mountains. Not exactly uplifting right? But, there's a mystery in this town and along with it, there's opportunity to make a choice. Choose hope and take charge of your life or leave...disappear (so easy to do)! You might think this is about choice but it's really about "deciding to choose." A definite "must read!"

You will love traveling with Emmett, Billy, Wooly and Duchess, 4 young men seeking a better future by way of the Lincoln Highway. What a trip! Although the goal was to drive to California, it's a crazy adventure that takes them from Nebraska to New York. My favorite character, quirky Wooly, put it best when he explained the difference between an "every-day" day and a "one-of-a-kind" day. May you find your "one-of-a-kind" day as you travel along the Lincoln Highway. Enjoy the ride!

Everyone should have a little magic in their lives. This is a story of friendship between Bert and Lucy (and Lucy's hero from her favorite book Nancy Drew). There's a OUIJA board (the "spirit" board), a woman who sees into the future, and a missing body, all contributing to the lively imagination of these two best friends. Times are hard in 1943 North Carolina, but Bert and Lucy only see an opportunity to solve a great mystery. You will not want to stop reading once you begin this beautifully written story.
