New books for Mary to expand her lending library

Posted Mar 9, 2018
Mary struggles to stay out of conflict with her peers when she doesn't have things to keep her busy, but her "library" has been a positive way for her to interact with these peers. She also has several books that are the first in a series, and she wants the next books so she can complete the series. It would be fantastic for Mary to have something enjoyable and productive to do with her time.

Learn More About Mary

Mary is 17 years old and lives in Indianapolis, IN

Mary and her siblings were removed from their birth parents' care almost a decade ago. Though she is the oldest, she has struggled the most in foster care. While her siblings have been or are in the process of being adopted, Mary's often extreme behaviors have led to countless placements including acute stays and residential treatment programs. Mary spends a lot of time at her current facility reading and writing, and has even started something of a lending library with other residents using books from her personal collection. She has more books than anyone else in her unit, but has so many more books that she wants to read.

Dear Mary, I also love series and just finished a few good ones including the All Souls Trilogy and His Dark Materials Omnibus. My other favorite series include: Hunger Games, Maze Runner and The Kongkiller Chronicle. Nothing is better than escaping into the fantasy of a good book!
