Just in: The Game of Love and Death
“Martha Brockenbrough’s sense of time, place and youth is devastatingly evocative. This exquisite, elegantly original fable of young love smashing convention to smithereens is so beautiful I wish I’d written it myself.”
— Elizabeth Wein, author of Printz Honor Book CODE NAME VERITY and ROSE UNDER FIRE
Hi, my name is Leighanne Law and I became Scriber Lake High School’s teacher-librarian in 2014. I’m originally from Michigan, where I graduated high school as a theater nerd in 2000. The next year, I moved to Northfield, MN, started my BA in English, and got to read all the time and talk about books.
I loved being an English major so much that once I graduated in 2004, I decided to become a bookseller at one the most amazing indie-bookstores in the country, McLean & Eakin, booksellers. I worked there for four years as a young adult bookseller and event planner. Then, because I needed a new place to explore, I moved to Seattle in 2010 and began working at The Elliott Bay Book Co. up in Capitol Hill. What a haven for a reader!
In 2012, I went back to school and earned my MA in Teaching with an endorsement in Secondary English Language Arts from the University of Washington. While I was in school, I worked at the lovely Phinney Books in Seattle’s Greenwood neighborhood. In 2015, I also earned my School Library Media Endorsement from UW’s iSchool. Now, to my relief and delight, the only school I get to go to each day is Scriber Lake High School!
If I had my druthers, I’d be a Steampunk Librarian.

Thank You, Edmonds Foundation!
Scriber Lake High School students absolutely want to write. They also absolutely want to read. It is with gratitude that I announce that Scriber Lake High School has received an Edmonds Foundation Creative Classroom grant for $500 to purchase personal narratives for the school’s library.
