A Kind of Paradise [9780062795410]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Read the book that Ali Standish (author of The Ethan I Was Before) calls a heartwarming story and Melissa Roske (author of Kat Greene Comes Clean) calls a joyful, heartfelt debut!

Thirteen-year-old Jamie Bunn made a mistake at the end of the school year. A big one. And every kid in her middle school knows all about it. Now she has to spend her summer vacation volunteering at the local library-as punishment. What a waste of a summer!

Or so she thinks.

A Kind of Paradise is an unforgettable story about the power of community, the power of the library, and the power of forgiveness.


AUTHOR: Amy Rebecca Tan has worked as a babysitter, a waitress, a camp counselor, a tea seller, a muffin delivery person, a barista, and a bookbinder. She currently works in a public library and an independent bookstore. She has a master's degree in special education and has taught in the New York City school system. Amy lives in New Jersey with her husband, two children, and dog.
