Waiting For You Book Club

Reading a book Patrons who join the WAITING FOR YOU BOOK CLUB @ the Haverstraw King's Daughters Public Library will automatically be put on the list for new books by their favorite fiction authors. Consider it one less thing you have to think about!

How It Works:
Place a check mark next to the names of up to 5 authors from the preselected list of best-selling authors in our form. Each time your chosen author publishes a new novel, you will be added to the reserve list for the new release. While we cannot guarantee how close to the top of the list you will be, you'll be on it without having to place the reserve. Staff at Haverstraw King's Daughters Library will inform you when something new is waiting for you.

How to Join:
Complete and submit our online form or pick up a form from the Reference or Circulation desk. Paper forms can be submitted at the Reference Desk.

More About the Service:
This service is available to HKDPL cardholders only and is for new titles only; reprints will generally not be included. Please pick up books promptly when notified of their availability. Because of their popularity, these books are in high demand. We ask that you be considerate of those who are waiting.

The Wonder of All Things The Wonder of All Things
by Jason Mott

Summary: On an ordinary day, at an air show like that in any small town across the country, a plane crashes into a crowd of spectators. After the dust clears, a thirteen-year-old girl named Ava is found huddled beneath a pocket of rubble with her best friend, Wash. He is injured and bleeding, and when Ava places her hands over him, his wounds disappear.

Ava has an unusual gift: she can heal others of their physical ailments. Until the air show tragedy, her gift was a secret. Now the whole world knows, and suddenly people from all over the globe begin flocking to her small town, looking for healing and eager to catch a glimpse of The Miracle Child. But Ava's unique ability comes at a great cost, and as she grows weaker with each healing, she soon finds herself having to decide just how much she's willing to give up in order to save the ones she loves most.
