Book Week is nearly upon us! (Saturday 22nd – Friday 28th August)

This years theme is ‘Books Light Up Our World’. As such, the book of the week is taken from the Book of the Year Short List for 2015. DHS Library has many of the short listed books, and they are currently on display in the library entrance. Come have a look and take a guess at who you think will win!

Intruder, by Christine Bongers

From the blurb:

I don’t walk past the house next door. I wish the woman in it was dead. Which makes it hard… because she was the one who came running when I screamed.

Kat Jones is woken by an intruder looming over her bed. She’s saved by Edwina – the neighbour Kat believes betrayed her dying mother.
Her dad issues an ultimatum. Either spend nights next door, or accept another intruder in her life – Hercules, the world’s ugliest guard dog. It’s a no-brainer, even for dog-phobic Kat.
When she meets adorkable Al at the dog park, finally Kat has someone to talk to, someone who cares.
But the prowler isn’t finished with Kat. To stop him, she needs Edwina’s help… and what Kat learns next could mend fences – or break her fragile family apart forever.’
