Justine Lafrance In Truncheon books in episode 18 when Rory, Jess, Luke and April are talking there's Wilton Barnhardt's Emma Who Saved my Life on a shelf behind Luke, as well as 72nd and Rodeo by Roz Avrett and Lawrence Sanders' The Eighth Commandment behind April. There's one that looks like it says Lockers behind Luke but I can't figure out any books that match!
