Canton Book Project

Meet the Canton Book Project book givers:

Easter Ann Peters:
Operation Cool
by Jody Lamb

selected this book because, in addition to a very strong and quirky voice, it
deals with important subject matter. Even though Easter Ann is like any other
new seventh grader trying to figure out who she is, she has the added
difficulty of an alcoholic mother. Although the subject is heavy, it’s dealt
with sensitively and even with humor.
It’s a very uplifting book for everyone, whether they have these kinds
of problems at home or not” -Sarah Perry
