HEART OF GOLD
Genre: Mainstream, Multicultural
As Jenkins’ Blessings series continues, the town of Henry Adams, Kan., has grown and the kids are mostly settled into the stability they cherish. This novel fleshes out the adoptees’ backgrounds and introduces new storylines for future installments. The focus is on the issues of insecurity and trust. Throw in new residents, and Henry Adams continues to be a joyful, and never dull, destination.
Roni, Reggie and Zoey Garland are in crisis mode, and Roni is at a loss for a resolution. Zoey picks up on all of the tension and believes that she is the cause. She also learns about a town resident who has lived in seclusion to protect his supposed stash of gold. Zoey takes it upon herself to leave food for him and, as a result, when he dies, the hermit leaves the gold to Zoey. This brings another level of mayhem to the town, when a treasure-hunting horde comes calling. (WILLIAM MORROW, May, 320 pp., $13.99)
