Read full description of the books Midnight Hour Encores:Feeling self-made is not a triumph but a beginning.
Sibilance T. Spooner thinks she's one of the world's most promising cellists. The world thinks so too. Given up by her mother on the day she was born, she believes she has almost raised herself—with just a bit of guidance from her unconventional father, Taxi.
When Sib finally asks Taxi to take her to meet her mother for the first time, he knows that behind the cool request lies a deep curiosity about her missing parent. Taxi, afraid that Sib won't be able to understand or forgive her mother, carefully orchestrates their long drive to San Francisco as an education in who her mother was and who she might now be. Only Sib and Taxi are in for some surprises when they arrive. And Sib learns it's not simply her music that makes her special—but the silent force behind it.
Read information about the authorBruce Brooks (born September 23, 1950) is an American author of young adult and children's literature. He was born in Washington D.C., but spent most of his time growing up in North Carolina as a result of parents' being divorced. Although divorce is never easy for a child, Brooks credits moving around a lot between the two locations with making him a keen observer of social situations. Switching schools often and having to make new friends evolved his ability to tell good stories. He graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1972, and the Iowa Writers' Workshop in 1980. Before earning a living as a writer, Brooks had worked as a letterpress operator and a journalist for magazines and newspapers. Brooks has reported a very diverse list of influences, like Charles Dickens, Henry James, P.G. Wodehouse and Raymond Chandler. Brooks has three sons: Alex, 23, Spencer, 15, and Drake, 1. He lives with his wife Ginee Seo in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
