One afternoon after listening to the Mayor's press conference, Ashley discovers that the Mayor is taking away the community library.

I jumped out of my chair and run toward the TV."That stupid mayor. I don't believe it! She's shutting down the library. The only library we have in this community and replacing it with some, some business store," Grandma yelled. She scowled at the TV. "I don't believe the stupid mayor. You see what I mean about people in power making decisions that ruin your life, and you have no say about anything.""Oh, oh, Grandma, that's so terrible. The library is the only place I have left that's positive in the community.""Ashley, don't you get it? They don't give a hoot about people from our neighborhood. All they care about is making money off of the poor," she said.Then a quick flash the mayor came on the television. Suddenly, my knees felt weak and heavy. I felt like I was ready to collapse."Grandma, what is, is the mayor's name?" I asked. I struggled not to stumble."I'm not for sure. Some person name Baldwin, a Mrs. Baldwin I guess. Oh watch they are showing that evil witch on television right now," Grandma said. She glared at the television. Grandma was going nuts.I desperately tried not to break down, Grandma didn't have a clue that I'd met Mrs. Baldwin, and I wasn't about to tell her. Luckily, Grandma was going crazy about the may∨ she didn't notice that I'm emotionally falling apart.Author BioDr. Audrey Cuff was inspired by her special needs students to write her debut novel, City Of Thieves.
