Through BiblioWorks, a 501(c)3 non-profit, we have built 12 community libraries, trained hundreds of teachers and librarians and changed the lives of tens of thousands of underprivileged children. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and Barger's introduction of the history of the werewolf in literature was priceless. It is not written to follow a chronological order… the books can be read out of sequence without losing any necessary details. Blanchard's secret based on a story by Emily Neff. Since Ed fears his sister, he does whatever Cara tells him to do.
