Book of the Day: From the Desk of Zoe Washington

From the Desk of Zoe Washington by Janae Marks

Avid baker Zoe Washington, (who is summer interning at a Boston-area bakery), receives a letter on her twelfth birthday from her biological father, who is in prison for a terrible crime. From debut author Janae Marks, a mystery full of heart, as one courageous girl questions assumptions, searches for the truth, and does what she believes is right-even in the face of great opposition. A perfect book for fans of Front Desk and All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook.
