This last week was great for new - old book purchases! A trip to Wonder Books in Hagerstown Md. and the Library Book Sale this morning have my shelves once again bulging. I may have to ride along with Katrina to IKEA and get another book shelf!
The ones I'm most excited about finding...
Jane Paterson Milne was born in Gourock, in the Lowlands of Scotland and educated at Greenrock Academy & Glasgow University.
'Harriet G., a wealthy American girl, comes to a traditional English girl's school. Two schoolmates, Wyn and Judy, believe Harriet is a kidnapper, and try to solve the mystery.'
Leaves and Pages and immediately wanted it. To my surprise there it was on the shelf at Wonder Books Used Book Store and only $2.99! The aunt is named Mildred, my mom's name. And there is also a book by the same author, Death of My Uncle. Now I'm on a hunt for it!
UPDATE: this is not the same book as @ Leaves and Pages! Notice the one word difference in the title..Death of My Aunt VS Murder of My Aunt! Darn! but I did find it on paperbackswap so I have the right one too!
