Author Brian Herberger is coming to Herndon Middle School for the Reading Rally on December 16, 2016. Come by the library and check out a copy of his book "Miss E." to read before his visit.
Being the new kid in town is a way of life for Bets, but moving to California in 1967 is different. Her father leaves for the war in Vietnam, her history teacher gives an assignment that has the whole school searching for clues, and the town's most mysterious resident shares a secret with Bets that has been hidden away for decades. When a peaceful protest spins out of control, Bets is forced to reconsider how she feels about the war her father is fighting and her own role in events taking place much closer to home.
