The Borrower is the story of Lucy Hull, a twenty-six-year-old children’s librarian in the small town of Hannibal, Missouri, who finds herself both kidnapper and kidnapped when her favorite patron, ten-year-old Ian Drake, runs away from home.
"Rarely is a first novel as smart and engaging and learned and funny and moving as "The Borrower." Rebecca Makkai is a writer to watch, as sneakily ambitious as she is unpretentious."~ Richard Russo, Pulitzer Prize-winning author
