The Borrower by Rebecca Makkai

The Borrower

My rating: 4.6

Lucy Hull, a young children's librarian in Hannibal, Missouri, finds herself both a kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten- year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home.
 This was a wonderful, quirky, funny and a little far-fetched novel that I thoroughly enjoyed. I loved both the characters but especially Ian! Lucy made me want to be a children's librarian. You just have to go with this story line, not object with too much logic, and enjoy the ride.
