Goodbye, Harleysville Books

It is with great sadness that I announce the closing of my beloved bookstore, Harleysville Books. While our events and book clubs are extremely popular and routinely sell out, our day-to-day traffic and sales do not support the ever-increasing cost of doing business in today's world. Over the past year, the store has become more of a "showroom" for those looking for reading suggestions who then choose to purchase the books from other vendors. It is my sincere hope that those who have enjoyed shopping with us over the past 11 years will stop in during the next few weeks to share their memories and say, "Goodbye." Please stay tuned for details about our final days.

Description


A timely work of contemporary magical realism, about a world plagued by violence, and the girl called upon to be a hero.

When terrorists bomb Disney World, seventeen-year-old Iris Spero is as horrified as anyone else. Then a stranger shows up on her stoop in Brooklyn, revealing a secret about the mysterious circumstances surrounding Iris's birth, and throwing her entire identity into question. Everything she thought she knew about her parents, and about herself, is a lie.
Suddenly, the press is confronting Iris with the wild notion that she might be special. More than just special: she could be the miracle the world now so desperately needs. Families all across the grieving nation are pinning their hopes on Iris like she is some kind of saint or savior. She's no longer sure whom she can trust except for Zane, a homeless boy who long ago abandoned any kind of hope. She knows she can t possibly be the glorified person everyone wants her to be but she also can t go back to being safe and anonymous. When nobody knows her but they all want a piece of her, who is Iris Spero now? And how can she one teenage girl possibly heal a broken world?
