Books to Look For
 
Far Far Away by Tom McNeal                                                                    YA FIC 2013
 
In a small mid-Western town, Jeremy’s life is like a fairy tale—but not a good one.  His mother has eaten a cake that is said to cause you to fall in love with the first person you see, and she has run off with another man.  Jeremy’s father has given up on life, taken to his bed, and pretty much left him to fend for himself.   Luckily Jeremy is not totally alone; he hears a voice in his head, a voice that comforts him and claims to be the ghost of Jacob Grimm.  He is there to protect Jeremy against an evil being, the Finder of Occasions, who lives anonymously in the town.   But without a steady income, Jeremy and his father are in danger of losing their bookstore and home, so when his friend comes up with the idea of going on a TV quiz show to earn the money, he is desperate enough to say yes.  However, the ever present evil is not inclined to let Jeremy and his friends succeed; he has other, more sinister plans for them!   2013 National Book Award Finalist
