Ahhh, I’m very sad about not being able to request Alma Underwood Is Not A Kleptomaniac. With a title like that, how could I not desperately want to read it? This book sounds like so much fun. And it’s a Read Now on NetGalley, so if it sounds interesting, you can have immediate access to it!
Alma Underwood is NOT a kleptomaniac. But she does take things that don’t belong to her. The best part about working as a maid in her parent’s motel is pocketing all the random objects people leave behind. From old ticket stubs to the glue that comes with a toupee, Alma has discovered it all and stored it in a tub beneath her bed. Her greatest treasure isn’t what she found in room six at Great Lakes Motel, but it’s who she discovered in an old, abandoned train car behind her house. His name is Rumor, and he certainly won’t fit under her bed. After a quick scan of Rumor’s surroundings, it becomes crystal clear that he’s not just hanging out in the train car for a place to escape. He’s living in it. With determination heavy inside her, she does the only thing that makes sense to her... She brings him home. Turns out, he’s looking for a treasure of his own, and who better to help him find it than her?
