The New Policeman – Kate Thompson

J.J. Liddy, 15, is descended from a proud old family of Irish musicians. In his small village of Kinvara, playing traditional music is a way of life. Lately, though, it seems that the townspeople have less and less time to fulfill daily responsibilities and very few moments left over to make music and enjoy life. In exasperation, J.J.’s mother asks for more time as her birthday gift. Unaware of any magical implications, the teen innocently sets out to find out where the time has gone. This search leads him into the heart of Tír na n’Óg, the land of eternal youth, where he discovers the truth about some family secrets and the identity of the rather hopeless new town policeman, whose mysterious investigation parallels J.J.’s quest.

This book gives you a chance to step into an Irish village…and then the land of the faeries.  The characters are real and enchanting, as is the setting.  When you stop to think about where all the time in your day has gone, this book has an answer!            – Jessica, Teen Librarian
