Title
Once Upon a Town: The Miracle of the North Platte Canteen
Author
Bob Greene
Review
This is admittedly a "feel good" book, but also a reminder of what incredible things we as a country can do at a local level. A factual account of North Platte, Nebraska's WWII canteen based at the local railroad station. Supplied and operated solely by citizens and private business, the canteen cheered on millions of boys and men heading off to war, and years later, welcomed innumerable returning soldiers on their way home - wherever home happened to be.
The author interviews the men and women who were part of this incredible effort, as well as the now aging soldiers who still weep at the memories of a small town so willing to sacrifice and support and love them all.  Reserve a copy!

My Sisters Keeper
Author
Jodi Picoult
Review
This book, well is really captivating. I loved the story line. I would read it for hours just trying to see what would happen next. I think this book is great for teenagers, or siblings. It just shows you how far a family will go for one another. Or how not so far they will.  Reserve a copy!
