The Other Typist by Suzanne Rindell

New York City, 1924: the height of Prohibition and the whole city swims in bathtub gin.

Rose Baker is an orphaned young woman working for her bread as a typist in a police precinct on the lower East Side. Every day Rose transcribes the confessions of the gangsters and murderers that pass through the precinct. While she may disapprove of the details, she prides herself on typing up the goriest of crimes without batting an eyelid.

But when the captivating Odalie begins work at the precinct Rose finds herself falling under the new typist’s spell. As do her bosses, the buttoned up Lieutenant Detective and the fatherly Sergeant. As the two girls’ friendship blossoms and they flit between the sparkling underworld of speakeasies by night, and their work at the precinct by day, it is not long before Rose’s fascination for her new colleague turns to obsession.

But just who is the real Odalie, and how far will Rose go to find out?

Big Library Read from Library2Go

Eddy-New Rockford Library to Participate in Worldwide Digital Book Club
New York Times Bestseller, This Is Where It Ends, will be available as free eBook to borrow

The Eddy-New Rockford Library announced today that it will take part in the Big Library Read program, a worldwide digital Book club through public and school libraries that connects millions of readers across the globe with the same eBook at the same time. For a two-week period beginning October 13, ENRL users will be able to borrow the eBook, This Is Where It Ends by Marieke Nijkamp (Sourcebooks), from Library2Go and participate in a worldwide version of a local book club. There will be no waitlists for this popular, powerful and emotional read. Big Library Read is facilitated by OverDrive, the leading digital reading platform for eBooks and audiobooks for schools and libraries.

This Is Where It Ends is a compelling story of an unfortunately all-too familiar situation: a school shooting. It follows four teens who face what is every student’s worst nightmare: a boy with a gun. Told from the student’s perspective, this powerful fictional account is important in its timeliness. At its core, Marieke Nijkamp’s debut young adult novel is a must read, gripping tale from start to finish.

 

“Told over 54 minutes, This Is Where It Ends is a story of family and vengeance, love and loss,” said author, Marieke Nijkamp. “But to me, above all it’s a story about how even when a world seems to have stopped turning, when everything has fallen apart, the darkness is never absolute. There is always hope. I hope readers will find hope in This Is Where It Ends too”

 

Big Library Read is a free program. To get started reading, all that is needed is a library card.  This Is Where It Ends can be read on all major computers and devices, including iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ phones and tablets, Chromebook™ and Kindle® [U.S. libraries only]. The eBook will be available with no wait lists and will automatically expire at the end of the lending period, so there are never any late fees.

The Big Library Read program is made possible through a partnership between Eddy-New Rockford Library OverDrive and Sourcebooks, publisher of This Is Where It Ends. The title was selected based on a survey of more than 5,000 readers, students, teachers and librarians. To borrow the eBook readers can visit http://ndlibrary2go.lib.overdrive.com/D5707267-C5FF-4A70-ADDC-D0EB0F77BF0F/10/50/en/Default.htm
