December's pick, "The Coalwood Way," is by Homer Hickam, author of the bestselling book,"October Sky." Like its predecessor, "The Coalwood Way" is a memoir of the author's coming-of-age in Coalwood, West Virginia. One reviewer writes, "Hickam can spin a gripping yarn and keep multiple underlying themes and metaphors going at the same time. His tender but gritty memoir will touch readers' hearts and minds."
