Today’s Riot Rundown is sponsored by The Bookshop of Yesterdays by Amy Meyerson, new from Park Row Books.
Miranda Brooks grew up in the stacks of her eccentric uncle Billy’s bookstore, solving the inventive scavenger hunts he created just for her. But on Miranda’s twelfth birthday, Billy has a mysterious falling-out with her mother and suddenly disappears. Sixteen years later Miranda receives unexpected news: Billy has died and left her Prospero Books, which is teetering on bankruptcy, and one final scavenger hunt. Miranda soon finds herself drawn into a journey where she meets people whose stories reveal a hidden history—and the terrible secret that tore her family apart.
