Can We Interest You in a Goldfish?

BookendsCindy and Lynn: Once upon a time, when a middle-school student walked in asking for that book with the goldfish on the cover, they were looking for either Sharon Draper’s Out of My Mind or Cynthia Lord’s Rules. Today the answer could be almost anything. Find a bowl, fill it with some goldfish crackers, and arrange these books for an easy, fishy display.
