Where will Heather and Picket land? How will they make their stand?
A novel for everyone, Shelve Under C is a big, leaning stack of humor, heart, stray cat hairs, old book dust, mystery, family drama, longing and hope. Used bookshops often have a cat or two roaming the aisles, sleeping on the shelves, or sleeping on the customers. Here is a novel all about one bookshop and its resident cats, Stomper and Buglit; and about Kris, a 12-year-old boy who apprentices in the shop. Kris is a little bit like the cats: he’s a foster child getting used to a new family, and the cats are being fostered in the bookshop for the local shelter. Stomper and Buglit are a little bit like Kris: they get into trouble, have some wild adventures, and find out just what being part of a family really means.Unlike some novels that have a bookstore setting, Shelve Under C has the real spirit of the store, its owners, its apprentice, its customers and, especially, its cats as the beating heart of this fuzzy beast. Stomper and Buglit would tell you that they are the main characters of their book. Stomps is grumpy, but Kris knows he has a tender middle. As one reader describes him, he’s like “a surly uncle who always shows up for Thanksgiving, eats, and then disappears to the TV room”. Bug is new to the bookshop. She misses her former person, but Mrs. O’Malley is making her life less lonesome and Buglit, in return, is becoming very important to the bookshop owners in some funny and surprising ways.Kris is trying hard to fit into his new foster family, but even after several months he still feels like an outsider. He becomes an apprentice at the bookshop, where he gradually finds a way to fit back into his own world as well as into his foster family’s. Shelve Under C is full of wonderful characters, a wild storm, a doggy bucking bronco, catnip capers, an almost-deadly chicken salad sandwich, and . . . books! No need to knock — the door is open. So come on in, grab something to read, and get comfy on the big, red sofa.This is the first book in the “Turning Pages” series.
