Eleven-year-old Perry was born and raised by his mom at the Blue River Co-ed Correctional Facility in tiny Surprise, Nebraska. His mom is a resident on Cell Block C, and so far Warden Daugherty has made it possible for them to be together. That is, until a new district attorney discovers the truth—and Perry is removed from the facility and forced into a foster home.
When Perry moves to the “outside” world, he feels trapped. Desperate to be reunited with his mom, Perry goes on a quest for answers about her past crime. As he gets closer to the truth, he will discover that love makes people resilient no matter where they come from . . . but can he find a way to tell everyone what home truly means?
On Monday, April 9th @ 3:45PM we will be discussing All Rise for the Honorable Perry T. Cook by Leslie Connor. Of course, we also will have something fun to do and a snack to eat. Please make sure to have your bus pass set up so the bus can drop you off at the library on that day. If you need a book, we have some at the library. See you on Monday, April 9th!!
