Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Now in paperback, the story of an African American girl who uses her resourcefulness and creativity to help keep her friend's neighborhood bookstore from going out of business

Destiny loves words, and her favourite place in the world is Mrs. Wade's bookstore, where words abound. On Saturdays, Destiny helps Mrs. Wade at the store, and at day's end they relax together, drinking tea and reading. Then one Saturday Mrs. Wade does not seem her usual self, and Destiny later learns the store may have to close.

Destiny is determined not to let this happen. As she rallies the community to help keep the store open, she also creates an imaginative journal for Mrs. Wade that captures the warmth and special magic of the store forever.
