Librarians discovered a horrible thing nearly 100 years ago - writers were running out of ideas. It was a crisis that everyone overlooked - everyone, that is, except librarians, who feared their jobs would be lost if they didn't find a way to continue to supply their libraries with books. Luckily for librarians, an invention came along that revolutionized the way books were written: the Library Tree - a tree that grows new books.
As great as these trees were, librarians, being intelligent people, knew they had to keep them a secret; if everyone knew about the tree, after all, then they would get their books from trees and not libraries. So for nearly 100 years they had kept their secret--until the day that Jake Maas, a boy librarians loved to secretly mock, discovered the secret.
