Twelve-year-old Keely Connor loves a dare. On the surface it looks like she lives an uneventful life, but underneath her ordinary appearance, Keely sees herself as an all-powerful knight on a dazzling steed, ready to take on the world. It doesn't matter that her imaginary steed is an ornery former breadwagon horse named Lola, or that the biggest challenge she has to face is her brother's dare to wade in a disgusting leech-infested pond. After all, she sees herself as Keely the Connor, ready to take on any causes.

But one hot summer brings with it a real cause much greater than anything Keely could ever have imagined. Her carefree world vanishes when her beloved brother suddenly is left paralyzed after a severe case of polio. Can Keely's zest and spirit give him the will to fight for his life?

Adam and Eve and Pinch-Me
Julie Johnston
ISBN: 0316469904
Hardcover, 180 pages
Little Brown & Co., 1994
Fine/Fine




Sara Moone prides herself on the fact that she can backspace, cancel, delete people right out of her life whenever she chooses. It's as easy as touching the keyboard of her prized computer, on which she records her thoughts. Since the time she was abandoned as a small child, Sara has been passed around from foster home to foster home, and when she moves in with the Huddleston "family" she expects the worst. There's Ma Huddleston, who never stops talking long enough to take a breath; Hud, the monosyllabic husband; four-year-old Josh, who immediately latches onto Sara; and Nick, a troublemaker whom Sara distrusts. And to add to Sara's worries there is a strange woman who's come to town to search for her lost daughter. Sara wants nothing more than to escape from them all, but that command on her computer suddenly seems to be missing. She soon learns that it's not easy to run away from the people you love. This humorous, moving story once again proves Julie Johston's skill at creating unforgettable characters and relationships.

Both books appear brand new and unread, pages are without writing, marks or tears, dustjackets show very little discernable cover wear. Both books have a black remainder mark on the bottom edge. These are not ex-library copies.
