Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
"In this warm, poignant, clever DEBUT novel about a woman who, upon inheriting a bookstore, discovers a series of clues hidden inside the books that lead her to uncover long-kept secrets about her family's past. Miranda Brooks grew up in the stacks of her eccentric Uncle Billy's bookstore, solving the peculiar scavenger hunts he would create just for her. But on her 12th birthday, Billy disappears from Miranda's life - until 16 years later, when she receives the unexpected news that Billy has died and left her Prospero Books, now teetering on bankruptcy. Miranda becomes determined to save Prospero Books and solve Billy's final scavenger hunt."--Publisher.
