The Monsters Of Templeton

The Monsters Of Templeton - Lauren Groff The first sentence reads ... "The day I returned to Templeton steeped in disgrace, the 50-foot corpse of a monster surfaced in Lake Glimmerglass.” The monster however is not the main focus of this engaging book. The quest to find her real father, dealing with "the lump" and a severely ill friend lead Willi on a path which traces the history of her small town. Throw in an ex-hippie mother, a group of runners and some really juicy secrets and I found this book an interesting journey.
