Newton girl writes books for charity

BOOKS FOR GOOD: Over the last two years, 12-year-old ­Abby Richmond of Newton has raised more than $3,600 by selling $10 copies of two self-published books to benefit Reading is Fundamental and the Nature Conservancy . Her decision to raise money for the Boston-based Music and Youth Initiative through her latest book, “Beatrice’s Fortune,’’ was inspired by her love of music.

Abby, a seventh-grader at the Rashi School in Dedham, loves to sing and has taken piano lessons since age 5.
