Amber Facchini, a local student from Auburn, MA, was a 3rd place winner in James Patterson's College Book Bucks Scholarship. For the second year in a row, the best selling author has held an essay contest for college bound high school seniors across the country. The essay question was "How has your favorite book inspired you toward what you'd like to do in life?" Amber won a $250 gift certificate to spend at the independent bookstore of her choice, Booklovers' Gourmet in Webster, MA. Amber is attending WPI in Worcester, MA with a major in computer science.
