The Secret Olivia Told Me


The Secret Olivia Told Me is written by N. Joy, and illustrated by Nancy Devard. This is one of my favorite new books! This book has been awarded a Coretta Scott King Honor Award for Peace, Non-violent Social Change and Brotherhood, and what a story it is!
I don't know which I like more, the story or the illustrations? The illustrations are all done in striking shades of red, black and white. The story; well let me tell you that the ending is a cliff hanger, but the message is loud and clear. Secrets told have a way of taking on a whole new life of their own! What a wonderful book! Come in and check out this book and many more on our new book shelves. Don't forget to ask about the Library Block Party on Friday, June 6th, from 6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., and get the New Summer Newsletter with all of our summer events and programs.
