Dont miss Barbara OConnors other middle-grade work--like Wish; Wonderland; How to Steal a Dog; Fame and Glory in Freedom, Georgia; The Fantastic Secret of Owen Jester; and more!

From an author long recognized for her true Southern voice and heartfelt characters, Greetings from Nowhere, with its four intertwining stories, brings Barbara OConnors work to a new level of sophistication.

Aggie isnt expecting visitors at the Sleepy Time Motel in the Great Smoky Mountains. Since her husband died, she is all alone with her cat, Ugly, and keeping up with the bills and repairs has become next to impossible. The pool is empty, the garden is overgrown, and not a soul has come to stay in nearly three months. When she reluctantly places a For Sale ad in the newspaper, Aggie doesnt know that Kirby and his mom will need a room when their car breaks down on the way to Kirbys new reform school. Or that Loretta and her parents will arrive in her dads plumbing company van on a trip meant to honor the memory of Lorettas birth mother. Or that Clyde Dover will answer the For Sale ad in such a hurry and move in with his daughter, Willow, looking for a brand-new life to replace the one that was fractured when Willows mom left. Perhaps the biggest surprise of all is that Aggie and her guests find just the friends they need at the shabby motel in the middle of nowhere.
