Grade 4 & up
Black Friday. That’s the day Truly Lovejoy’s world turned upside down. The day her father lost his arm in Afghanistan. They have had to move from their new home in Austin to the family home in the tiny town of Pumpkin Falls, New Hampshire. Truly feels invisible, and her father has shut down completely. As she struggles to find herself, she discovers a decades old mystery hidden in the family bookshop. Gathering friends as she gathers clues, Truly discovers that Pumpkin Falls isn’t such a bad place to live after all.
Just like her Mother-Daughter Book Club series, this book weaves book recommendations throughout. I hope that it is a start to another series!
