Amiable Adult Readers Discussing Books Almost Always Read by Kids (Aardbaark) will discuss A Northern Light by Jennifer Donnelly (Harcourt, $9.99).  Sixteen-year-old Mattie Gokey has big dreams but little hope of seeing them come true. Desperate for money, she takes a job at the Glenmore, where hotel guest Grace Brown entrusts her with the task of burning a secret bundle of letters. But when Grace’s drowned body is fished from the lake, Mattie discovers that the letters could reveal the grim truth behind a murder.  Set in 1906, Donnelly weaves romance, history, and a murder mystery into something moving, and real, and wholly original.
