Two books need validators.
I've just submitted a book from the teen or young adult section of my
library. It is a fictional story of a real firestorm that took place in
Hincley MN in 1894. The book is called Firestorm and the author is JAN
NEUBERT SCHULTZ. I have read and edited all 203 pages including
bibliography. I forgot to format the chapter titles differently. They
didn't scan so I had to have my husband read the titles and dates to me
while I typed them. I probably should have put them in a larger font or
bolded them. Whoever takes the book will not have to protect chapters or
anything like that.
Maggie hates everything
about Hinckley, Minnesota. She's furious with her father for dragging her
and her brothers there. It's ugly, dusty, dry, and bare. There's nothing to
do, and hardly a day goes by without small brushfires.
One day, the sky glows orange, and black dust drifts across the ground.
Maggie realizes that a fire is sweeping closer and closer to town. This is
no small brushfire. This fire swirls into a roaring tornado and flattens
into giant walls of flame.
Maggie and her family race to the train station. Hundreds of panicked
people force themselves into the packed railcars. Hundreds more can't get
on. The fire swallows the town, and flames lick at the train as it speeds
As the raging fire recedes in the distance, Maggie discovers that her
brothers didn't make it to the train on time. She knows that she must
return to Hinckley or risk never seeing them again.
Toujours Provence is still sitting on the download page. I think the title
might be scaring people off, or maybe just not interesting anyone to whom
it is completely meaningless.
It is a book, in English, about living in the Provence region of France,
which is in the south. Two other books written by the author, Peter Mayle,
are already in the collection.
The book has some French words in it that I can't check for accuracy, but
they probably are just fine and I think a validator would find it an easy
and entertaining read. As well as reading through it I checked page
numbers for accuracy, since it had many blank pages, and I made sure that
chapter titles were present but chapter titles used as headers were
