A hero librarian.
No wonder Paulsen wrote what he did. Reminds me of Robert Parker’s Early Autumn, where Spenser tells Paul he has to become autonomous, that it is the only way for him to survive his parents. Here, too.
Sad and triumphant at once, with a hero librarian. But then, are there any other kind?

I love every book he wrote. Every one of them resonates with the kid I was and the kid in me still.
