When an ambitious reporter takes a job in a town where nothing ever happens, bad things happen.
Hallie Linden yearns to write for the New York Times. At the moment, she’s stuck at a daily newspaper in tiny Green Meadow, Indiana, a town known for its amusement park and nothing else. It’s 1989, and juicy reporting jobs are hard to find. She resolves to work hard, win a few awards, and then welcome the job offers.
Hallie’s beats are cops, courts, and schools. When the local D.A.R.E. officer’s dog bites a schoolkid—at school—Hallie learns that Green Meadow’s townspeople have a reason for keeping quiet.
A steamy and ill-advised liaison with a firefighter connects Hallie with sources who are eager to talk, yet also fear for their lives. Bull-headed, idealistic Hallie struggles to figure out who she can trust in order to get the real story.
Told with gritty detail, Wrong Kind of Paper is a love song to ordinary people who decide to fight for what is right.
"With crisp pacing and strong characters, Cindy Simmons' intricate plot unfolds against the harsh circumstances that corporate journalism has brought to American communities." -- Doug Underwood, author of When MBAs Rule the Newsroom
