We all have THAT book, don't we?
For me it was a paperback I bought at a Scholastic book fair in approximately 1984. A book I loved and re-read, but for whatever reason disappeared from my life.
The book I'm thinking about is one I kept for many years, probably until the mid 1990s, and probably on a random weekend when I was cleaning my closet I put it in the goodwill bin.
For years I have thought about that book.
For decades I have wondered about that book.
Since the invention of the internet I have performed more than one search for the book, but seeing how I know neither the title nor the author, I could never find it.
Well, this week I attempted again to piece together some search terms that might solve this very important mystery.
Yet again, I got nowhere. That is until I found this site.
Loganberry Books of Shaker Heights, Ohio's STUMP THE BOOKSELLER feature.
I typed my crazy combo of words into their search bar, and lo and behold, I'm not the only person wondering about this book.
I found it! And I could not be more thrilled.
My long lost book love was The Missing Persons' League by Frank Bonham.
