Quotation of the Week

“Not every thirteen-year-old girl is accused of murder, brought to trial, and found guilty.
But I was just such a girl, and my story is worth relating even if it did happen years ago.”
-- Charlotte Doyle in The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle, by Avi
= Available at Sembach Library
