Have you ever fallen in love with a book? My latest middlegrade book crush is ABSOLUTELY TRULY by Heather Vogel Frederick. I highly reccommend this for a heartwarming winter read.
The adventure begins when Truly Lovejoy’s family moves from Texas to the tiny town of Pumkin Falls, New Hampshire. Her solider father, is recovering from an IED explosion in Afghanistan and goes to work managing the family bookstore. Truly has to endure moving in the middle of the school year, leaving behind her best friend and cousin, and being the tallest kid in seventh grade.
Soon after she arrives, Truly finds a mysterious letter hidden in an old copy of CHARLOTTE’S WEB. Enlisitng the help of her new friends, Truly embarks on a treasure hunt from the past. The town is full of crazy characters, and snowy charm. Truly’s family fights, forgives, and works together like a real family. This is one book that the whole family can enjoy. I highly recommend it as a read-a-loud.
And best of all – there are two more Truly books! You can follow Truly and the whole gang as they solve mysteries in YOURS TRULY and REALLY TRULY.
Really truly – I guarentee you’re going to love these books!
