The chance to pick out new books for Abigail who loves to lose herself in a story

Posted Dec 6, 2017
These are specific books Abigail is interested in. Since these books are very popular, she and her Big Sister never seem to find them at the books sales they frequent. Although Abigail sometimes find a few good books, she is often a little disappointed when she does not find any Graphic novels.

Abigail is 13 years old and lives in Clementon, NJ

Abigail is the oldest of 4 siblings. She is a very smart and kind young lady. She is initially very shy upon first meeting, but once she gets to know you, she really opens up and you get a real feel for her sense of humor as well as her easy personality. Abigail has several interests, she plays the violin, she runs cross country and track, but her all time favorite activity is reading. She loves to read, she is a real book nerd! Her and Big Sister visit book sales all over South Jersey whenever they can. Abigail has dreams of becoming a teacher when she grows up. The most unique thing about Abigail is her ability, as a pre-teen, to grasp and absorb rational thinking. Although her and her Big may not agree on a particular issue, she is accepting of the reasons as to why her Big Sister has a specific opinion, and she allows herself to open herself up to new and different experiences.
