The Center of Everything

Posted in Fiction

Here’s another example of a terrific read I found simply strolling the bargain bin, this time at Books A Million. However, it’s definitely worth full price as it will stick with you for a while. I had to grab it when I saw that the setting is small-town Kansas. I feel like I often read books starring glamourous, independent and plucky heroines set in big cities or far away locations, so reading this bildungsroman (or coming-of-age novel), set in the Midwest during the 1980s, was a great change of pace.
