A missing book

Once, in the past, a blog reader helped me find a book.  Maybe it could happen again (although now my blog is private with a much smaller following, plus I never write anymore. grrrr).  When I was in elementary school I read a book Annie.  I think that was the name.  I'm pretty sure it was written before the movie.  It was very good.  Problem is, it's not to be found on Amazon and isn't even mentioned on the Annie Wikipedia page!  What the heck?  It's like it doesn't even exist.  Anyone got any clues as to where I can find it?

The latest medical research

Sorry, I haven't been posting.

In medical news, this week's New England Journal of Medicine published a study that says that Apixaban is more effective for thromboprophylaxis than enoxaparin.  Translation: this new oral pill is more effective than the standard injection for preventing stroke in at risk populations.  This is such good news!  I always felt so bad for my patients who had to get these shots daily.  They are immensely painful.  And I was giving to these poor old ladies who probably weren't going to live long anyway, so I didn't see the point.  This would be a much needed improvement in healthcare.
