  10. Hi, I am the Library Ed. Tech at Lincoln Middle School. I was just introduced to your site by one of our teachers. I have some of the books that you mention,and was wondering how I might get copies of A Path Of Stars and Out of Nowhere? These titles seem like they would be great for our school library. Can you tell me who to contact? Thank you.
