Today's teaser comes from Dewey by Vicki Myron. Dewey was a library cat who after a rough start in his life found a home among the books, staff, and patrons of a small town library. So far it's a sweet story - a true story- about a cat who made a difference in many people's lives during a rough economic time (can we relate?).
From page 105:
I'd look for five minutes, then start calling his name. "Dewey! Dewey!" A dark library can feel empty when you're bending over between the stacks and looking through rows of books, but I always imagined Dewey somewhere, just a few feet away, laughing at me.
