The Sea of Trolls

MANHATTAN BOUND 2 TRAIN, BETWEEN FRANKLIN AND GRAND ARMY PLAZA
Jane, a children's librarian who works in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, was reading The Sea of Trolls by Nancy Forman.

"It's a Young Adult Book. I've almost missed four subway stops reading it. It's a fantasy about a boy captured by A Viking and apprenticed to a magical bard." Jane is reading the book, she says, because it is this month's selection in her book group, which meets at the Brooklyn Public Library's main branch at the Grand Army Plaza. She wouldn't normally read the book otherwise, she says. But she finds it is a very good book.
