Last Chance, Texas, has the highest literacy rate in the state, and it may have been due to the unusual influence Ms. Hatty, the librarian, had over the small town. When the lovely old library burns to the ground, along with Ms. Hatty, her influence extends beyond the grave with the last nine books left in a box. Each book was earmarked by a sticky note with the recipient's name. Meanwhile, a possible motive for the library arson becomes all too clear when the governor's office announces plans for a North/South Corridor, cutting directly through Last Chance.
