How to force a touchstone:
>6 Hope_H: left square bracket + title + comma + author last name + right square bracket will usually get you close to the correct (if not correct) touchstone.

The Library, Stewart = The Library, Stewart

If it still isn't the correct touchstone you can look to the right of the "add a message" box where the touchstones display, click (Others), scroll for the correct touchstone, click the link, and ta-da...correct touchstone.

Last way to get correct touchstone: left square bracket + work number + colon + colon + title + right square bracket.

The Library = The Library

This Is Our Story by Ashley Elston
★ ★ ★ ★ - 312 pages

After a night of partying, five high school seniors went out on an early morning hunting trip. Four came back. One, Grant Perkins, lay dead - killed with his own rifle. The boys won't say who had the rifle or why any of them would have had a reason to hurt Grant. Kate Marino, a senior, works part time with her mother in the district attorney's office. Because of her background in photography, her boss asks for her help reviewing the photos and video from the crime scene. What Kate keeps hidden: that she and Grant had started a relationship shortly before he died.

The mystery was good. I was kept guessing up to the end what really happened. The premise of Kate working in the DA's office was a bit far-fetched, as was the conclusion, but over all, a good read.

This is a YA novel - now I need to decide if I put it in my middle school library or pass it on the high school. I'm thinking it won't get too many takers at the middle school level, and the F-bomb is dropped a few times (but that doesn't automatically send it on.) My husband had a problem with the cover art: a dear head with antlers that look more like elk antlers.
