BOOK OF THE WEEK - Read our librarians' favorites

Defiance book cover
Valerie Hobbs

Toby, an 11-year-old cancer survivor, just wants to do normal things on his vacation. He wants to ride a bike, fish on the lake, feed cereal to the cow that he meets down the road, and possibly make friends with Pearl, a poet and the cow's owner. The last thing he wants to do is tell his parents that the lump on his side has returned.
