Abstract:

Lucy Hull, una joven resignada a trabajar como bibliotecaria de libros infantiles en un remoto pueblo de Missouri, ayuda habitualmente a su lector preferido - Ian Drake, un niño de diez años obsesionado con la lectura - a escoger libros a escondidas de su madre, una mujer autoritaria que pasa por la censura todo lo que el niño quiere leer. La inercia existencial de Lucy la lleva a tener una vida de pocas emociones, hasta que se topa con un dilema moral cuando conoce el plan que ha preparado Ian para escapar del control de su madre.

Lucy Hull, a young children's librarian in Hannibal, Missouri, finds herself both a kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten- year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home. The precocious Ian is addicted to reading, but needs Lucy's help to smuggle books past his overbearing mother, who has enrolled Ian in weekly antigay classes with celebrity Pastor Bob. Lucy stumbles into a moral dilemma when she finds Ian camped out in the library after hours with a knapsack of provisions and an escape plan. Desperate to save him from Pastor Bob and the Drakes, Lucy allows herself to be hijacked by Ian. The odd pair embarks on a crazy road trip from Missouri to Vermont, with ferrets, an inconvenient boyfriend, and upsetting family history thrown in their path. But is it just Ian who is running away? Who is the man who seems to be on their tail? And should Lucy be trying to save a boy from his own parents?
