For quite a while now it's just been Peewee and Jake, Jake and Peewee. The two siblings have been inseparable since the death of their parents and together they've managed to cobble a living for themselves out of a small automobile body shop. The year is 1914 and in a small town in Indiana Peewee and Jake are anxious for the new paved road to pass their miniscule business venture. While they wait, Jake has been working like a madman to create his very own automobile so as to enter it in one of the county's drag races.Read more ›
Here’s what I did manage to pick up of the plot: the main character, Peewee, and her brother, Jake, run the 1914 version of a mechanic’s shop in small-town Indiana. Peewee and Jake don’t have many possessions to speak of – or family, for that matter – and neither does the town. It doesn’t even have a library; the old librarian died years ago and no one stepped in to take her place. At least, not until Irene Ridpath and her sorority sisters ride into town. All four of them have begun courses in Library Science at Butler University, and all four are interested in filling the position of librarian. (Incidentally, all four also have very wealthy fathers.) The four women, especially Irene, help Peewee realize the kind of person she wants to be – but she has to help Jake become the person he knows he can be first.
At least, that’s the kind of summary I’d expect to see on this book jacket. It took me a good few days of pondering to decide on that, and I’m still not even sure it’s right.Read more ›
