Inspired by the true story of a girl who lived in the library, Kristen O'Donnell Tubb's The Story Seeker continues The Story Collector series with a heartwarming middle grade mystery that captures the illustrious New York Public Library during the roaring 20's.
Twelve-year-old Viviani Fedeler, proud resident of the New York Public Library, has her sights set on becoming a star reporter. She’s thrilled when Miss Hutch announces a story contest where the winner gets their essay printed in the New York Times!
But then Viviani gets her first-ever case of writer’s block. As she struggles to find inspiration, the library is hit with a strange mystery involving overdue books, secret messages, and perhaps a spy lurking among the shelves . . . Will Viviani be able to crack the code and find the perfect story worthy of a byline?
"Patterns, codes, mysteries, and storytelling are an appealing middle-grade draw."
