Important Information. Please Read Before Visiting Us.
Although we are currently open to in-store shopping, we are limiting the number of customers allowed at one time to six and will be enforcing the minimum 6 foot social distancing recommendations of the CDC. All children must be accompanied by an adult and must hold the adult's hand at all times while in the store. In accordance with state law, we will be masked. Out of consideration for staff and your fellow book lovers, we request that you, too, choose to wear a mask when in the store. We will offer a hand sanitizing station at the front door and encourage you to take advantage of it.
Because we are limiting customers to six in the store at any one time, you may call us to schedule an appointment at 503-472-7786. This will guarantee you entry at the time you specify. If you drop by without an appointment and there are already six customers in the store, you will be asked to wait to come in until someone leaves.
We are still taking orders through the website and over the phone and curbside pick up and home delivery within McMinnville (with $25 minimum purchase) are still available. We are also continuing to offer $2 per item Media Mail shipping.
We are currently out of stock of all of the anti-racist titles customers are looking for. White Fragility is not due back in stock until sometime in mid=July. How to Be an Anti-Racist is not due back in stock until early July. If you would like to gurantee that a copy of one or both of these titles will be available for you to purchase as soon as they come in, please place your order now (You can click on the book ttiles above to be taken directly to their order pages.). Stock will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. If you would rather not wait, you can also order both titles as digital audiobooks through Libro.fm or as e-books through Hummingbird.
A lightning strike gave her a super power...but even a super genius can't solve the problem of middle school. This smart and funny novel is perfect for fans of The Fourteenth Goldfish, Rain Reign, and Counting by Sevens.
Lucy Callahan's life was changed forever when she was struck by lightning. She doesn't remember it, but the zap gave her genius-level math skills, and she's been homeschooled ever since. Now, at 12 years old, she's technically ready for college. She just has to pass 1 more test--middle school!
Lucy's grandma insists: Go to middle school for 1 year. Make 1 friend. Join 1 activity. And read 1 book (that's not a math textbook!). Lucy's not sure what a girl who does calculus homework for fun can possibly learn in 7th grade. She has everything she needs at home, where nobody can make fun of her rigid routines or her superpowered brain. The equation of Lucy's life has already been solved. Unless there's been a miscalculation?
A celebration of friendship, Stacy McAnulty's smart and thoughtful middle-grade debut reminds us all to get out of our comfort zones and embrace what makes us different.
"Fresh story, great characters, a winner!" --Barbara O'Connor, author of Wish
