My Sunshine Away by M.O. Walsh
“It was the summer everything changed….”
My Sunshine Away unfolds in a Baton Rouge neighborhood best known for cookouts on sweltering summer afternoons, cauldrons of spicy crawfish, and passionate football fandom. But in the summer of 1989, when fifteen-year-old Lindy Simpson–free spirit, track star, and belle of the block–experiences a horrible crime late one evening near her home, it becomes apparent that this idyllic stretch of Southern suburbia has a dark side, too.

We are having our first Winter Reading Challenge! Our theme will be, “Imagine Someone Else’s Story”
January 1 – February 29, 2020!
This year’s Summer Reading Program theme is “Imagine Your Story”. As we prepare for the upcoming theme, we thought we could put a twist on it for our winter challenge.
The Winter Reading Challenge is an opportunity for adults to celebrate the enjoyment and gratification of leisure reading and earn a 2020 special prize by reading five books and experiencing a couple of our databases in the 2-month time period.
Prepare to experience books about people different than yourself. Use our databases to learn about other cultures, lands and languages as we ask readers to “Imagine Someone Else’s Story”.
How do I participate?
- Check out the “Imagine Someone Else’s Story” Winter Challenge printout available on December 23rd.
- Adult readers (18+) may join online or at the library, and begin logging on January 1, 2020
- Complete the Winter Reading Challenge list by reading any five books meeting the themes listed and by using World Book Online and Pronunciator to answer questions for 2 (of the 5) different books between January 1 and February 28, 2020.
